The Masai Mara is Kenya's most renowned game park, situated in the northern borders of the Serengeti. Its legendary seasonal Great Migration of over two million wildebeest and other antelope has been described as one of nature's greatest wildlife spectacles and an experience every safari enthusiast should witness at least once in their lifetime. Game viewing in this celebrated park is wonderful throughout the year, with virtually guaranteed sightings of the Big Five.
During winter the Mara becomes very busy and wildlife sightings become very active, with vehicles gathering for a lion kill or potential river crossings. During the quieter summer months and the green season the reserve is much quieter and visitors feel as if they have the Masai Mara to themselves. Although the big herds of the Great Migration have moved off by this time, the abundant resident game can still be seen and wildlife sightings still rival anywhere in the world.
Day 8: Masai Mara > Nairobi Today you board your light aircraft flight for Nairobi, where your safari ends with a transfer to the International Airport for your onward departure.
