Masai Mara Safari Holidays
Without a doubt Kenya’s masai mara national reserve is one of Africa’s classic safari destinations. Known for the annual Wildebeest Migration, it thus features on most of our top recommended Kenya safari holidays. It’s also extremely popular the world over which is why we recommend booking your Masai Mara tour or safari well in advance – especially if you want to see the migration.
Its popularity however means a number of factors must be considered when choosing your Masai Mara accommodation.Choosing which area to visit and when to go will impact on your experience. The Masai Mara’s central region is busiest during migration season and its many lodges and safari hotels cater for large numbers of people. The northern concessions offer more privacy and tucked-away accommodation such as luxury tented camps and decadent safari suites, plus you’ll be able to enjoy a greater selection of activities like guided walks and star=gazing. The eastern region is closest to Nairobi and the accommodation is consequently larger in scale, catering for scheduled tour groups and the like.Remember however that the Masai Mara offers great wildlife viewing throughout the year and your safari experience will certainly be different out of peak season. You might not get the wildebeest herds but there’s plenty else to see and a wide range of places to stay at, many of which offer discounted, out-of-season rates.
Our selection of masai mara safari holidays include family-friendly vacations, romantic honeymoons and unforgettable safari and beach adventures. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, contact one of our Angani Travel experts and they’ll tailor-make you the trip of a lifetime.
