Here at the Masai Mara conservation extraordinary wildlife events happen here when the wildlife maneuvers across the plains of the Masai Mara.

Wildlife - Natural History

Kenya is with no doubt Africa's wildlife pioneer thanks to several natural factors among which favor the adjacent Masai Mara where wildlife is abundant, including some 300 birds species, the commonly sought-after “big five,” with plenty more. Generations have come and gone the Masai Mara has not changed as Africa’s top wildlife safari destination.

People - Culture

The Maasai warriors hail from these lands, they are an ethnic group of people inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya who are a pastoralist tribe which is semi-nomadic. They move following rain and green pasture just the way the wildebeest do in the Masai Mara. Although in recent years the government has encouraged them to drop this life and style and adapt to the changing world. Many have decided to move to urban cities and also adopted new farming methods to keep their most treasured possession of cattle.

Safari Planning

Meticulous safari planning is very vital for anyone visiting the Masai Mara. Without proper planning, one will get lost in the many adventures that are evident in the Masai Mara. For a photographer especially a wildlife photographer this is a paradise not to miss. As you are greeted by abundant African elephant, African buffalo, Rothschild giraffe, lion and cheetah, wildebeest and zebra. Leopards occur and are frequently encountered, endangered black rhinoceros hide in the dense thickets and large schools of hippopotamus and plenty of Nile crocodiles are found in the Mara River, there are also roughly 450 bird species.
