Hi, hoi, hola, hallo

Safari experiences that you will not find with any other travel company. We know Africa best and will get you to the right place & time to enjoy the greatest shows on Earth!

The Maasai Mara ecosystem is one of Africa's most famous landscapes and attracts visitors from near and far. The breathtaking view of the sunrise from the Oloololo (Siria) Escarpment, some 300m above the plains below, was forever etched into human memory by the film Out of Africa.

Visitors are drawn to the drama of Mara River crossings during the famous Great Wildebeest Migration months of August to October, but wildlife action on the Big 5 Mara plains continues throughout the year. Locals in the know prefer the quieter 'secret season' when the big herds (and most tourists) have left, and the resident big cats made famous by BBC's Big Cat Diary again rule their kingdom.

The combined area under conservation in the Maasai Mara ecosystem in Narok County amounts to almost 3,000km² (300,000 hectares), which is split evenly between the Maasai Mara National Reserve (150,000 hectares) and various community-owned conservancies that share unfenced boundaries.

From rustic campsites to lodges that epitomize luxury, the Maasai Mara has something to offer every taste (and an array of varied budgets).
