MASAI MARA SAFARI & TOUR

AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN MASAI MARA WITH AFRICANMECCA

Your magnificent frontier trip of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve takes you into the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, one of the world’s greatest pristine wilderness expanses. AfricanMecca organizes morning and afternoon game drives in this high-density fauna outback. Should you choose an accommodation in one of the conservancies, you also have exclusive access to additional areas of the ecosystem via varied activities, including night game drives, as well as guided walking safaris, fishing in some river camps and cultural visits to Maasai villages. Game drive experienced in varied outbacks from riverine woodlands to the great plains is the most widespread tour activity in Masai Mara. Your AfricanMecca guide has an in-depth knowledge of the reserve, including the finest vantage points to see specific animal interactions, large herds, elusive species, nocturnal activities and other noteworthy sights. Game tours are best prescribed in the early mornings and late afternoons within the reserve; however, off-road driving is not allowed. The private Mara conservancies that border the main reserve do not have such limitations, so you have more freedom to see wildlife when and where you wish. Your guide also has an innate ability to track and locate animals that may otherwise go unnoticed. A cheetah crouched in the long grass awaiting her prey or scans the vast plains atop a termite hill or even your vehicle while a distant puff of dust reveals the location of a lion kill.

While game drives in Masai Mara gives you a large-scale perspective of the flora and fauna, walking safaris take you into the smallest habitats and life unnoticed from a vehicle. Insects crawl upon delicate plants; small mammals peer out of their hiding places, avian life are evident in nested trees and the soil itself reveals clues as to the activities of larger creatures. Walking safaris are only allowed in the private conservancies bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve. Your guide enlightens you as to traditional uses of plants, scat identification, tracking and navigation techniques, wildlife management challenges, ancient folklore and much more. We also recommend bush walks along the riverine forest for guests who desire a birding tour of East Africa’s incredible feathered inhabitants. The Maasai people are one of East Africa’s most iconic tribes. Largely known as fierce warriors who wear deep red clothing, the Maasai live by intriguing values and traditions. AfricanMecca arranges cultural visits to local Maasai villages to take you inside these proud people. You learn about family and gender roles, beliefs and practices, as well as the challenges of maintaining an ancient way of life in the modern world. We highly recommend that you include a hot air balloon ride in your tour activities at Masai Mara. Drifting along the air currents above the pristine plains wilderness gives you unrivaled vistas of the landscape and uninterrupted wildlife interactions. The experience is the picture-perfect complement to game drives and walking safaris, giving you a comprehensive bird’s-eye view understanding of the greater Serengeti-Mara ecology. Most of all, though, the sensation of being in a hot air balloon is simply thrilling!
