Route Map

In the Mara, the wildlife is abundant and the swaying grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Elephants browse amongst the large herds of wildebeest, topi, gazelle, eland, and buffalo. The plains offer a rich variety of food for the dominant predators: lion, leopard, hyena, and cheetah. In the Mara River, hippos submerge while crocodiles sunbathe on the riverbanks.

From July to September, rain depending, the Masai Mara is host to the famous wildebeest migration which is one of the few remaining mass migrations of mammals in the world. During this time herds of over a million wildebeest will trawl their way through this region and they become the major focus for predatory activity and drama unfolds at every corner.
