For 3 days, follow your heart and explore the boundless savannah, with its rolling plains and marshy forests, where you’re sure to encounter breathtaking and truly beautiful sceneries of wild nature that will enrich you in many ways. The Maasai Mara extends over an area of 3,000 sq. km. Between July and October, it’s home to one of the natural wonders of the world – The Great Migration – when over 1 million wildebeest and other wild animals migrate in search of better grazing areas, with predators in their wake – on land, and in the crocodile-infested waters, they must cross.
