Masai Mara Holidays

This wildly popular game reserve was given its name by the elegant local Maasai. 'Mara' or ''spotted' perfectly describes the landscape. In any direction you can behold circles of scrub, savannah and copses of the iconic acacia tree.

Should you feel like truly 'roughing it', there are several camps that allow you to cater for your own expenses on the trip. However, there are also several luxury lodges to choose from that cater to your every need. One such is The Royal Mara Safari Lodge. It offers haute culture cuisine, luxury four poster beds and polished mahogany surfacing. It's perfect for a honeymoon or even a unique wedding.

Of course, the main reason everyone desires the chance to visit this magical land is to witness the wildlife. Maasai Mara is home to the largest concentration of lions, leopards, cheetahs and game in the world. And let us not forget the awe-inspiring movement of millions of zebra, gazelle and wildebeest that occurs annually - otherwise known as the Great Migration. These events were immortalised in the BBCs 'Big Cat Diary' series. Who could possibly miss out on a chance to see such an event in person?


There are lots of ways of ways to view the wildlife:

Walking

This option gives you the chance to see some of the wildlife in close proximity. You will be accompanied by a Maasai, and given detailed talks on the habitats of the multitude of animals. You will also get a demonstration of the exceptional Maasai tracking skills. Please note, that for obvious reasons walking is not permitted by visitors in the National Reserve itself!

Horse/Vehicle Rides

This specialist tour option is very popular. Whilst on horseback, you have an opportunity to get closer to the animals than ever before! The sense of adventure kindled by traversing the vast, open landscape is truly epic. It couldn't be further from the enclosed office space you may be used to! Not a keen rider? One of numerous operators will happily provide a tour of the majestic environment from the comfort of a modified safari vehicle.

Balloon Riding

Normally lasting for an hour, the balloon tours offer superb birds eye views. Setting off before dawn, you'll witness the sunrise over this wondrous land. Feel the cool wind on your face as you drift serenely over the plains, leaving your troubles far behind… When you return to the earth, breakfast - including Champaign - awaits.
