The tawny, wildlife-stuffed savannahs of the world-renowned Masai Mara needs little in the way of introduction. Land of Big Cat Diary and Disney’s African Cats and gathering point of the ’Great Migration’ – one of the natural wonders of the world – this gloriously beautiful, wildlife-rich savannah landscape is Africa at her best. The short-grass plains of the Mara River basin teem with tens of thousands of antelope of more than a dozen species from the tiny dik-dik to the huge eland, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, while regal Masai giraffe lope through trees. Prides of big-maned lions lie hidden in the grass, the ever-elusive leopard sleep high in trees, and spotted hyenas and jackals skulk between herds of some 1,500 elephants. Migratory Burchell’s zebras and wildebeest gather in their hundreds of thousands to graze and give birth and tall, traditionally dressed Masai tribesmen still herd their cattle and goats in a lifestyle that hasn’t changed for 350 years ago in this incredible and unique
cradle of Africa.
