Masai Mara Reserve


The Masai Mara Game Reserve is located at the northern end of the Serengeti in southwest Kenya. Opposite of Kusini at the southern end, it was the end of the rainy season here. The animals were plentiful and the Wildebeast & Zebra herds were massing to start their huge migration south to follow the rains (and green grass). Masai Mara was the highlight of the trip and it's easy to see why A&K comes here last during this time of the year (in the spring, they end the trip at Kusini because of the rain pattern).

A&K's Olonana Tented Camp,  situated on the banks of the Mara River in the heart of Kenya's big game country, was the nicest of the bunch. It was a tented camp in name only as you can see from the photos. The Masai Mara is the same elevation as Denver (5,000+ feet), so the evenings in particular were cool and pleasant.
