All species of animals found in the Maasai Mara may be seen in the area surrounding the camp. However, a variety of animals live within the camp throughout the year.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve is situated in south-west Kenya and is one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves. It stretches 1,510 sq km (580 sq miles) and raises 1,500-2,170 meters above sea level. It hosts over 95 species of mammals and over 570 recorded species of birds.
These include: bush baby, genet, bushbuck, vervet monkeys, tree-hyrax and five species of mongoose.
There is really no ‘Best Time To Visit’, but the Wildebeest Migration from July to October should not be missed. This is the best time to see this incredible movement of animals.
Otherwise it is a all year round destination with the big cats, and all the other big & small game that lives permanently in the Mara Ecosystem.
