Why we love January in the Masai Mara

January is the peak of summer in the Masai Mara. Sporadic rain brings on growth of the savannah grasses, butterflies flit through the forest and fruiting trees in the riverine woodlands draw in parrots and elephants into the camps. Lion, leopard and cheetah begin to move further apart in search of prey. There is wonderful birding with the European migratory birds in residence.
