Discover the Maasai Mara: Exploring Kenya's Wildlife and Culture

Crafting Your Perfect Safari in Maasai Mara.

Welcome to the wild heart of Kenya – Maasai Mara! At Savannah Wanderlust Expeditions, we invite you to embark on an unforgettable journey into one of Africa's most extraordinary natural wonders. Maasai Mara, sometimes spelled Masai Mara, is a jewel in Kenya's crown, renowned worldwide for its exceptional wildlife and breathtaking landscapes.

The Maasai Mara Experience

Situated in the southwest region of Kenya, Maasai Mara is not just a national reserve; it's an encounter with the wild in its purest form. Covering an expansive 1,510 square kilometers (580 square miles), Maasai Mara National Reserve offers an unspoiled habitat for a remarkable array of wildlife. This pristine wilderness rises from 1,500 to 2,170 meters above sea level, creating diverse ecosystems that support over 95 species of mammals and more than 570 recorded bird species.

The Great Migration

A highlight of any visit to Maasai Mara is witnessing the Great Migration, a natural spectacle that rivals any on Earth. Millions of wildebeests and zebras migrate from Tanzania to Kenya, crossing the Mara River in search of fresh grazing lands. This awe-inspiring event, often accompanied by thrilling predator-prey interactions, takes place from July to October. Plan your safari with us during this period to witness nature's grandeur.

Accommodation Options

When you visit Maasai Mara with Savannah Wanderlust Expeditions, you have the freedom to choose from a wide selection of accommodations. Whether you prefer luxury lodges, tented camps, or intimate boutique lodgings, we've handpicked the best properties to ensure your stay is comfortable and memorable.

Capturing the Moments

Maasai Mara is a photographer's paradise, offering unparalleled opportunities to capture stunning shots of wildlife and landscapes. Don't miss the chance to include the Shompole Hide in your itinerary, where you can even take aerial shots of flamingoes and pink lakes from a helicopter.
