Why we love December in the Masai Mara

December brings warm days with scattered rain showers, the grasses on the plains green and everywhere you look there are young and for the antelope the rutting season begins. With the wildebeest gone families of elephant return in numbers to the forests around our camps. Large clans of hyena roam the plains, there are cubs in the lion prides and the migratory birds are back from Europe, feeding nesting and breeding in the Marsh.
