The Maasai Mara is the most renowned safari park in Kenya. Famous for its great herds of plains’ game – including its exceptional population of Maasai lions, African leopards and Tanzanian cheetahs – it’s also the best place to see the Great Migration: the annual movement of zebra, gazelle and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti in Tanzania.
Maasai Training – Learn traditional customs and skills such as spear throwing and Maasai dance. The Maasai are an ethnic group inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are among the best known local populations internationally due to their residence near the many game parks and their distinctive customs and dress. The Maasai culture is renowned for its music and dance, in which a leader sings the melody while others sing harmony on call-and-response vocals and make guttural throat-singing sounds.
And Beyond Tours or Ambolesi Tours In the foothills of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is a must-see. She comes out from the mist in the early morning, while some of the largest tuskers you’ll ever see graze at her feet, and will spoil you with huge herds drinking water from surface springs. The park is home to as many as 370 species of birds and you can expect to see zebras, wildebeest, spotted hyenas, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, buffalo, warthogs, impalas, jackals and leopards.
