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.

April in the Masai Mara

The rains have come this month bringing hope and raising the levels of the Mara River only to subside again later. There has been plenty going on, huge herds of resident zebra arrived on the plains. Marsh Pride lioness Yaya sustained an injury and had to be treated by the wildlife vets, the six males were hunting, very close to Governors Camp, There was elephant drama at Little Governors Camp as a big herd of 48 eles moved into the camp to feed only for a youngster to get stuck in the Marsh, he was released by the older eles after much panic. And we had great leopard sightings including the female on Olare Orok having to share her kill with a pack of hungry hyenas!
