Things to see in Kenya: The Masai Mara
Kenya's finest wildlife sanctuary is a place of gently rolling grasslands studded with acacia trees. Wild animals wander the ancestral homelands of the Masai, who still tend their livestock here, creating a curious harmony between man and wildlife.
This natural paradise is home to elephant, black rhino and great herds of plains game including Thompson's and Grant's gazelle, zebra, eland and others, which offer rich pickings to predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah, while the rivers contain hippos and countless Nile crocodiles. Some 450 bird species have been recorded here.
In short, the Mara is one of our favourite destinations.
