The Masai Mara is a Game Reserve (sometimes called a National Reserve) although an inner area is treated as a National Park. Reserves are normally managed by local authorities and allow lodges, camp sites and the settling of some tribespeople with their cattle. National Parks are normally managed centrally and do not allow any human inhabitation other than for Park Rangers and people on safari.
In the Mara you will encounter the Masai people in a very special way as you see them living in harmony with the wildlife around them. The Mara is rich in wildlife and you will see dense herds and wide variety all around you. Many predators are to be found. Stay at the Mara Buffalo camp and savour the experience!
While it is reachable by road, the Mara’s somewhat isolated location makes it ideal for an air safari using East Africa’s very best bush pilots - stunning views!
