This Masai Safari will give you the opportunity to visit some of the greatest National Parks in the world, with great potential for viewing all of the ‘big five’. You will start your safari adventure by visiting the Samburu Reserve which is home to the ‘big five’ and a wide variety of birdlife. You will also visit Lake Nakuru, home to the endangered black rhino and a large population of flamingos before finishing your journey with world-renowned Masai Mara. If you visit the Masai Mara between June and October you may be lucky enough to witness one of the greatest spectacles on earth, the annual wildebeest migration when over a million animals cross the plains. However, whichever time of year you visit, the Masai Mara will be most definitely a memorable trip.
