3 Days Masai Mara safari, What to see

Masai Mara is one small area where the abundance of wildlife is next to none. You expect to see a lot of animals and with some little luck you may spot all the safari Big Five namely; Elephant, Lion,  Rhinos, Leopard and Buffalo.  Masai Mara is also famous for large cats and you expect to see other cats like Cheetahs (fastest animals on earth) and you are lucky, you may witness the spectacular hunts by these beasts.

Masai Mara is famous for the annual wildebeests migration also referred to as the Great Migration, which has been recognised as one of the 7 wonders of the world. The best wildlife spectacle on earth, Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration sees more than 1.5 million herds of wildebeests accompanied by thousands of Zebras and thompson gazelles roam the wilderness covering thousands of kilometers from Southern Serengeti in Tanzania and ultimately covering the crocodile infested waters of Mara River.
