Why we think you’ll love it

  • Many of the camps we use on safari in the Masai Mara are tucked away in prime wildlife areas on private concession areas bordering the Masai Mara Reserve, where it's possible to enjoy walking safaris, unlike in the Reserve proper
  • There's quite simply phenomenal game viewing here, especially between July and October, when the annual wildebeest migration is usually in action

Safaris in the Masai Mara: The Detail

It was probably inevitable that the Masai Mara's great wildebeest migration would eventually lead to a mass migration of another kind - this time tourists - intent on following the proceedings.

And so it has come to pass that there are now a plethora of camps and vehicles, but Original Travel and Tim Best Travel know the region well enough to be able to recommend the ultimate Masai Mara safari holiday from the most exclusive, secret and sophisticated places to stay and the canniest guides around, able to seek out a pride of lions not surrounded by 20 vehicles overloaded with snap-happy tourists.

Our chosen camps in the Masai Mara all provide guests with superb game viewing and most importantly, are far from other lodges and camps. In addition, these concession areas are not restricted by game reserve rules, so guests can enjoy night drives in custom-built 4x4s; bush breakfasts, picnics and sundowners as well as full access to the Game Reserve, and the Mara River.

In short, the ultimate Masai Mara safari holiday.
