Things To Do Masai Mara
Other safari activities in the Masai Mara include:
Balloon Safaris: Balloon safaris are carried out daily from several lodges and can be booked through us. This safari offers guests a spectacular view of the great Mara plains, and of the abundant herds below.
Walking Safaris: The Masai Mara Reserve holds strict rules regarding trekking and it must be arranged through your lodge or camp or our travel consultants can assist with the arrangement in advance. Outside the Reserve however i.e. the conservancies and ranches, guests can take on hiking and walking, especially in the attractive Loita Hills. For the best experience we provide you with a local Maasai guide which will give you firsthand experience of the Maasai beliefs and legends about this area.
Horse Riding: Horseback Safaris are offered in areas outside the main reserve. These safaris are a unique way of viewing game allowing guests to move easily through the herds of the Masai Mara.
Bird Watching: The Masai Mara is home to over 500 recorded species of birds including the Corncrake, Grey crested Helmet Shrike, Lesser Kestrel, Madagascar Squacco Heron, Saddle Billed Stork, Secretary Bird, Ostrich, White headed Vulture among more common species, Lilac Breasted Roller, Yellow billed Ox pecker among the large herds, and Martial and Crowned Eagles. This is truly a treasure for the ornithologists.
Cultural visits: Guests in the Masai Mara, can experience true African culture first hand by visiting the Maasai Villages. The Maasai are semi-nomadic cattle-rearing people regarded as fierce warriors. They have conserved their culture with time and eagerly welcome guests into their homes to learn about their lifestyle.
