Masai Mara Safari

What makes the Masai Mara so Special

The Masai Mara lies along the Great Rift Valley in southwest Kenya, bordering Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. 

Experience the journey of a lifetime with an Asilia Masai Mara safari, the awe-inspiring wildlife reserve in Kenya's southwest region bordering Tanzania. The Masai Mara National Reserve and its surrounding conservancies are Kenya's crown jewel of natural beauty and biodiversity.

By day, feast on the drama of the Great Migration, the thrill of spotting a cheetah on a hunt, or the grace of a leopard lazily lying on a branch. Immerse yourself in the Maasai people's wisdom, cultures, and traditions, who have lived in harmony with this land for centuries. As the day starts to wane, witness the golden light of late afternoon sunsets while sipping your favourite cocktail. Enjoy the romance of the moment, the changing light as the sun slowly slips behind an iconic flat-topped acacia, with plains game silhouetted against the horizon.

As darkness falls, take in the splendour of the night sky accompanied by the whooping of hyena and the roar of lion penetrating the silence. A Masai Mara safari with Asilia is more than just a holiday; it's a life-altering adventure. With Asilia Africa, you can embrace it in the best way possible. Join us now and explore one of the world's most incredible natural wonders.

Top 6 Masai Mara Activities

Wildebeest Migration: The glittering jewel in the crown of the Masai Mara is arguable the annual migration of thousands of zebra and wildebeest that occurs annually. From the dramatic river crossings to the sight of grazing herds as far as they eye can see – it’s one not to be missed.  

Game Drives: Our custom-designed and resilient 4x4s come equipped with power points and fridges to ensure complete comfort while exploring the Mara and getting close to spectacular wildlife. 

Photographic Safaris: You can capture wildlife shots at eye level for stunning photos from our specially modified photography vehicle at Naboisho Camp. Equipped with essential gear like camera rests, beanbags, and 360° swivel seats, you'll have everything you need to capture award-winning wildlife photographic memories. 

Big-Cat Conservation: Learn about the Masai Mara's famous big cats by visiting Kenya Wildlife Trust research units, or have researchers come to you and share their work at Asilia Africa's Rekero Camp. 

Cultural & Community Visits: Join our guides on visits to their local communities to learn about the diverse cultures and traditions of the Maasai lifestyle or visit The Maa Trust to experience one of the most successful community development and upliftment programs in the country.  

Hot-air Balloon Rides: Experience the East African landscapes from a unique birds-eye perspective and capture breathtaking photographs as you float silently through the sky in a hot-air balloon.
