Game Drive Wildlife Viewing Tours in Masai Mara
Masai mara is world famous for perfect game viewing opportunities due to its gently sloping plains with yellow savannah grass and dark spots from the scattered shadows of the clouds. Infact, the name Masai mara means the spotted plains in Masai language that resemble the rosette markings on a leopard’s skin.
The mara is the perfect theatre for wildlife viewing due to its wide open spaces that are free of forests and trees. There is virtually nothing to obscure your game viewing for miles on end besides the grass. The Masai mara is therefore naturally made for game viewing and a short game drive will bring you face to face with the big five animals of leopard, lion, rhino, buffalo and elephants including the many other animals.
Another thing that makes the Masai Mara a world famous game drive destination is the fact that it has more than 3 million animals scattered across the savannah, rivers and hills. Masai Mara, due to its abundance in pasture and fresh grass, has attracted millions of grazers to this 1510 sqkm area. In turn, the big predators are never far behind such large numbers of antelopes, gazelles, giraffes and other grazers. Masai Mara is known to have the highest concentration of big cat predators than anywhere in the world in natural settings.
To top it all, Masai Mara is the theater of one of the world’s biggest wildlife migration. The great wildebeest migration has been named as the wonder of the world and it involves over 1.3 million wildebeests, 250,000 zebras and over 100,000 gazelles. These animals migrate in a circular 3,000km long route that crosses through two countries and 3 national parks. The wildebeest’s migration is triggered by the rains, lighting and thunder up north in the Mau hills which promise lush green grass in the Masai Mara.
