Maasai Mara Wildebeest Luxury Safari - 3 Days

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The Great Wildebeest Migration, where vast herds of wildebeest and zebra wander across the Mara grasslands in huge numbers during the annual migrations.
  • Almost guaranteed sightings of the Big 5 at any time of the year
  • Stay at Maasai Mara Sopa Lodge, located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills (OR SIMILAR)
  • Have a relaxing luxury stay and wildlife game-viewing

Maasai Mara is known for its Great Wildebeest Migration, where over two million animals migrate from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of Maasai Mara, Kenya from July to October.

This is a luxury safari, which means that you will stay at Masa Mara Sopa Lodge, located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills. This place was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their centre.

This safari makes a good choice for those wanting to have a glimpse of wildlife game-viewing combined with a pamper-filled vacation!
