The Mara is a beautiful but sensitive environment that can survive only if properly respected. Well-watered by the Mara River, enjoying abundant vegetation, wildlife and rainfall, its ecology would appear, at first sight, to be relatively resilient. It also appears to have withstood the erosive effects of huge numbers of visiting tourists extraordinarily well. There are signs, however, that the delicate balance between tourist numbers and wildlife populations cannot be properly maintained for much longer as evidenced by the reduction in the protective vegetation cover and the emergence of a series of dust bowls. Meanwhile, the Reserve is host to 95 species of mammals, amphibians and other reptiles and 485 species of birds. During the dry season (July to October) it also hosts a major concentration of migratory herbivores including about 250,000 zebra and 1.3 million wildebeest. Amongst the list of easy-to-view species are: gazelle, elephant, topi, buffalo, lion (Kenya's largest population), black rhino, hippo, hyena, giraffe, leopard and mongoose.

My wife and I love the bushveld and game parks. We have been to most of the game parks in Southern Africa and are regular visitors to the Kruger National Park and a few of the other national parks in South Africa. Maasai Mara is great and I would rate it a top 10 spot for game viewing, birding and... More

A beautifully managed and organised part of the Mara where the rangers are really diligent and seem to take a real pride in what they do. The roads are without doubt the best maintained in the whole of the Mara and active anti- poaching units, backed up with dog patrols and sensible park rules which are rigidly adhered to make...

The Mara Traingle made me feel like I had gone back in time to live with the wild and free animals that roam there. My husband and I marveled at the lions, cheetahs, wildebeests, mongeese, hyenas, rhinos, hippos, elephants, zebras, countless various birds and beautiful scenery, and more. We had an experienced, very knowledgeable guide and met wonderful people who... More

I wish much more turist would take the opportunity to travel back to our roots and enjoy this magic place. You never know when it will be to late since there's an ongoing battle between Masais and...

Firstly, Mara triangle is a part of Maasai Mara but it is on the southern east part of the park and a separate part. It is like a conservancy but if you pay for park fees at the main gate then you can enter here free of charge. If you are staying in Mara Serena then you need to be... More

Masai Mara has everything; beautiful nature and lots of animals & birds. We got a great guide that was very eager to track animals and show us the beauty of the park. We even drove us to a beautiful view point in time for sunrise so take pictures and take in the spectacular scene. Masai Mara is a big must!

We came here to see the animals. We were able to say all the big five apart from the leopard. Close to the Tanzanian border there were two cheetahs which was a big treat.

The Maasai Mara triangle was absolutely brilliant; so glad I came here. We saw everything we wanted except the ever-elusive leopard, and I came away a very happy camper! I did a combination tour with Lake Nakuru; if I had to book over, I would have skipped Nakuru (where everything is too far away to see without binoculars, and you... More
