Wildlife Reserves

Our Wildlife reserves IN Masai Mara

The Masai Mara region is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kenya. Located within the Great Rift Valley, the area around Masai Mara thrives with varied abundant wildlife including the “Big Five” elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo as well as a rich birdlife. It also plays host to the famous annual wildebeest migration. Living among the incredible wildlife are tall red-robed Maasai people, whose lifestyle is completely at odds with western practices, from whom one learns to question certain Western values.

Located right next to the Mara Reserve is Mara Naboisho Conservancy a private area of pristine wilderness with strict controls on the number of visitors and vehicles permitted. We offer safaris in Masai Mara National Reserve and Naboisho Conservancy. While staying in our camps, you can visit both wildlife reserves, which will give you an amazing safari experience in two different wildlife-rich destinations all year round.
