Our wildlife reserves in Maasai Mara

Seasoned safari travellers, travel writers, documentary makers and researchers often describe the Maasai Mara as one of their favourite places. So why is that?

Perhaps it is because of the ‘big skies’, the open savannahs, the romance of films like ‘Out of Africa’, and certainly because of the annual wildebeest migration, the density of game, the variety of bird life and the chance of a hot air balloon ride. There are also the tall red-robed Maasai people, whose lifestyle is completely at odds with western practices, from whom one learns to question certain Western values.
