3 Day Masai Mara Kenya Safari
2 nights, 3 Day Masai Mara Kenya Safari
Explore Masai Mara Wildlife Reserve, Africa’s best wildlife safari park to spot the wildebeest migration and big cats.
A highlight of this tour is to watch the wildebeest migration, the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth. The suggested time to catch this event is from June to October each year when about 1.5 million herds of wildebeest along with herds of zebras, and gazelles move to Masai Mara in search of greener pastures. The animals cross the Mara River coming from Serengeti and this offers a fantastic photo opportunity to watch some action as the predators and crocodiles take a chance.
Masai Mara is also a favorite place to spot big cats including lions, leopards, and cheetah. The big five are also present.
