South Western Kenya the heartland of the Maasai, along the Tanzanian border is the Masai Mara Game Reserve, widely considered to be Africa's greatest wildlife reserve. When it comes to game-viewing, there is nowhere in Africa richer in wildlife or more eventful in encounters than the Mara.
A pristine wilderness of haunting beauty, it promises its visitors a profusion of wildlife, prolific bird life and the unprecedented opportunity of catching up with all the members of the 'Big Five' in one morning. As to scenery, the 1,800 sq kilometres of this veteran reserve offer the classic mix of African imagery; miles of lion-gold grasslands, shoals of lilac-misted hills, a meandering river, acres of thorn-bush and mile upon mile of undulating wilderness.
The acacia forests will abound with birdlife and monkeys. Elephants and buffaloes will be wallowing in the wide Musiara Swamp, while the Mara and Talek rivers will be brimming with hippos and crocodiles, watched over by the storks that stand on the sandy riverbanks.
