Safari Adventure

Area Guide

The Masai Mara is one of the world’s largest ecosystems home to a splendid variety of trees, plants, birds, reptiles, mammals and of course the big cats.

The Migration

Tempted by greener pastures, the wildebeest arrive at the Mara River around July and cross over into the Masai Mara plains. Their spectacular northward migration is dictated by weather patterns, but typically the wildebeest remain in the Masai Mara until about October when they return to Tanzania. The Masai Mara National Reserve and Mara North Conservancy are located west of the Rift Valley and are a natural extension of the Serengeti and a key dispersal area for wildlife.

Approximately 1.3 million wildebeests as well as hundreds of thousands of other animals, including zebra and gazelle coming from the south make the journey. They are met on the Masai Mara plains by another migratory contingent, the resident wildebeest herds of the Mara region. These animals reside in the northeast of the Mara, the Loita Plains and Hills, and are also drawn by the lush grasslands. By October, the rains are heading back south to the Serengeti, and the migration reverses, continuing the cycle of life.

Less famous, yet very impressive, is the Loita Hills migration, where thousands of local wildebeest drift in from the east in May and often stay in the Mara North Conservancy throughout the year, heading back to the Loita Hills only when it rains again in March. This makes the Masai Mara an all-year destination and not just a seasonal environment.


The Masai Mara is an all-year destination and not just a seasonal environment. Each season offers unique highlights.

January – March
The main focus is on the big cats and their cubs that are generally born at the end of the year, and the local Loita Hills wildebeest migration

April – June
Emerald season, quiet, an ornithological dream!

July – September
Wildebeest migration and river crossing season

October – December
Most animals are giving birth

Park Rules


Please give yourself plenty of time to enjoy one of the most beautiful places on earth. You are welcome to stay with animals for as long as you wish as long as you follow the park rules below.


Human activity interferes with an animal’s behaviour; to see animals behave naturally you must keep a good distance away. Please stay at least 25 metres (roughly five vehicle lengths) away from animals. Never put your guide at risk of being fined by asking him to drive too close to an animal.


Wild animals will move away or freeze if they hear human voices. To watch animals continue with their normal hunting, feeding and nursing activities please lower your voice and remain calmly seated. Shouting, clapping, or cheering disturbs the wild animals and is strictly prohibited. Please switch off the engine, radio and mobile phones at a sighting.


To ensure minimum disturbance no more than five vehicles are allowed around one wildlife sighting. When there are more than five, the viewing time is reduced to 10 minutes. In that event take your turn and wait at a minimum distance of 100 metres.


Respect the animals. Do not harass any wild animals by forcing them into movement, blocking their path, or follow them too closely. Vehicles and human interference can cause confusion; separating an animal from its young or preventing a hunting lion or cheetah from bringing down its prey. Always keep a good distance from young families, as well as dens, burrows and nests.


For safety reasons, you must remain inside the vehicles when close to wild animals. This rule also applies for sitting or standing on rooftops.


At designated areas, you are welcome to stretch your legs, enjoy the view or have a picnic lunch. Check for animals, including the above branches. Stay within 25 meters of your vehicle.


Wild animals become habituated if fed, causing them to abandon normal hunting and feeding behaviours. They can then become aggressive and threatening towards humans, which may lead them to be destroyed.


Please ensure that all litter is brought back to the camp with you, including cigarette butts. We want everyone to enjoy the wonders of the Mara. Please do not take any specimens will you; bones, feathers, stones, plants and flowers must all stay where they are.


Afternoon game drives can easily be extended into an exciting night game drive. Please use a red filter to view animals at night which does not disturb their normal behaviour.


These rules and the Masai Mara rangers protect the wildlife and the environment. They are there to make sure that each person who visits the conservancy can enjoy their stay. Please respect our rangers and work with them – we are all responsible in ensuring the protection of the Mara. Thank you and enjoy your stay!

As such he is determined to study Italian as an additional foreign language.

He was lucky later to join the Amboseli Institute of Hotels, Tours & Catering and attain a Diploma in tourism management.
