The Masai Mara National Reserve is Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve. Everything about this reserve is outstanding. The wildlife is abundant and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Birds, too, are prolific.

Including migrants, well over 450 species have been recorded, among them, 57 species of birds of prey.The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well-spread rainfall year round. Rain, when it falls almost always chooses the late afternoon or night. Between July and October, when the great wildebeest migration is in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the sensation is unparalleled.

I must say Kichaka Tours and Travel Kenya Ltd has the best reputation and they are what they claim because their tour is well organized. I have enjoyed their services at the Nairobi Nationa Park with the use of knowledgeable, local guides who are experts on the history of the location and offer their tour groups interesting or enlightening information about points of interest at nature attractions, historic sites, scenic locations, and other travel destinations. Connect with Kichaka Ltd and enjoy their services
