Must see · Wildlife Area · National Park
See herds of zebras, giraffes, gnus, impalas, and elands (accompanied by the usual predators) at Mara Triangle, the northwestern part of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Open plains with tall grass and acacia forests are home to lions, cheetahs, leopards, spotted hyenas, and jackals, while along the Mara River you might spot crocodiles in action during migration periods. Run by a nonprofit organization, the triangle spans some 510 sq km (197 sq mi). Tour the reserve on a safari ride, and bring camping gear to stay in one of the public or private sites if you wish.

  • Breath taking beauty. Wild animals in abundance everywhere. The food is OK not great, but lots of it. Just keep mind you are in the middle of the wild so the services are amazing in that context.
  • There is no better safaris than those in Kenya, and depending on season the Mara is on top. You are guaranteed to see all you desire except the shy leopards.
  • Absolutely loved this place. Was amazing to see so many animals in their natural habitat. Couldn't believe how close we got on occasions and very fortunate to see the wildebeest migration. Advice for any women going on safari - take a sports bra. Nobody said how bumpy off road driving would be!
