Masai Mara

Set in the heart of Africa’s Great Plains in Kenya, the Masai Mara boasts 1,672 sq. kilometers of unspoilt wilderness. It offers the best game and bird-viewing not only in Kenya, but anywhere in Africa. The views across the rolling golden grasslands studded with acacia trees, rivers and forests are dazzling, the sense of space overwhelming. Throughout the year the Masai Mara is a place of natural drama, a kaleidoscope of colour and life. Most stunning of all are the months between July and October, when the savannah teems with animals during the Great Wildebeest Migration. Millions of wildebeest gather in the Masai Mara in one of the natural wonders of the world. Staying in one of the Governors' Camp properties puts you right in the heart of the action, closer than anyone else to its incredible sights and sounds.

May in the Masai Mara

May has been a relatively dry month here in the Mara, we have received some rain but not as much as we normally do at this time of year. The large resident herds of zebra remained on the plains around our camps until about mid month, we have seen lovely herds of elephant feeding in the Marsh and out on the grasslands and have had good sightings of the six male lions, female leopard Saba and we got one of our first glimpses of female cheetah Musiara's new tiny cubs.
