Few places conjure up dreams of a Kenya safari quite like the Maasai Mara (sometimes written Masai Mara). The vast savannahs are home to an astonishing array of wildlife as well as enchanting night skies. The region is perhaps most famous for the Great Migration between July and October, where over a million wildebeest, gazelle and zebra make the perilous journey across the plains under the watchful eye of lions, leopard and cheetah.
And while the Great Migration is undoubtedly a draw, the experience of a Maasai Mara safari is an unforgettable one whenever you choose to travel. Such is the proliferation of wildlife in the Maasai Mara National Reserve and surrounding conservancies that you are likely to encounter lion, cheetahs and rhino whenever you visit, as well as hippos and crocodiles basking in the Mara River and no end of safari regulars such as giraffe, zebra, impala and warthog.
We use our in-depth knowledge and passion for the region to seek out the very best lodges in the Maasai Mara. Being under canvas here does not mean you have to make any compromises on luxury, and there is something to suit every possible taste and occasion. Elephant Pepper Camp is a charming and intimate camp that will delight those looking to fully connect with nature and seek out the Big Five. For a romantic adventure and true ‘Out of Africa’ feel, Cottar’s 1920s Camp offers classic elegance and unsurpassed guiding in a private conservancy, rich in wildlife. Families, meanwhile, will delight in the spacious two-bedroom suites at Sala’s Camp, which offer their own plunge pools for you to cool down in after a busy morning of game viewing.
