If you want to go to the Masai Mara stress free, this tour is the right choice: you just get on board and enjoy – the flight over Kenya’s fantastic landscapes and of course the Masai Mara itself!
Enchanting grassland or picturesque hills — depending on which part of the Masai Mara you are in. Especially the migration of the wildebeest from Serengeti to Masai Mara is an impressive spectacle (usually between July and October), in which the big cats are not missing.
In general, the animal wealth of the Masai Mara will overwhelm you. Not only the Big Five feel at home here, especially the large herds of grass-eaters and giraffes in the vastness of the savannah inspire the visitor.
Tip: book a balloon ride once in a lifetime – over the vastness of the savannah – early in the morning when the sun rises!
