7 things you need to know before going on safari to the Masai Mara!

Why Go On A Masai Mara Safari

It is one of the best places in Africa to go on a safari, and the Masai Mara National Reserve and the surrounding conservancies are Kenya’s most prominent conservation region. Elephants, buffalo, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, and the renowned big cats of the Mara—lions, leopards, and cheetahs—find refuge in its expansive plains. And every year from August to November, the Mara serves as a welcome rest stop for the endless herds of wildebeests that follow the rains on their seemingly endless, 2,900-kilometer (1,800-mile) circular trek.
