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.

October in the Masai Mara

The month of October dried up the Mara a good bit - rain levels have tapered off leaving the grasslands a lovely golden colour that is so reminiscent of this popular wildlife destination. The Loita wildebeest herds have crossed back into the Mara Reserve and thousands more have moved back into the conservancies north-east of the Reserve. Many Topi gave birth in October out on the open plains - a lot of these births were witnessed by our guests and of course excited the well known predators surrounding our camps.
