The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivalled flow of wildlife throughout the year. From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1. 5 million Wildebeest and Zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them.
The spectacle, as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with predators, which in turn take their part in this dramatic event. Whilst the migration is spectacular, game viewing at all other times of the year remains almost unrivalled anywhere in Africa.
Backed by Governors' Family of Camps extensive resources and a comprehensive selection of activities, this is the ultimate Kenya safari.
