Mara Triangle, Maasai Mara National Reserve

See herds of zebras, giraffes, gnus, impalas, and elands (accompanied by the usual predators) at Mara Triangle, the northwestern part of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Open plains with tall grass and acacia forests are home to lions, cheetahs, leopards, spotted hyenas, and jackals, while along the Mara River you might spot crocodiles in action during migration periods. Run by a nonprofit organization, the triangle spans some 510 sq km (197 sq mi). Tour the reserve on a safari ride, and bring camping gear to stay in one of the public or private sites if you wish.

  • This time, four nights in Masai Mara, and the game drive galore. Drive on different routes every day. I wanted to see the river crossing of the wildebeest, but unfortunately I couldn't see it during my stay. It was just looking at the carcass on the riverbank. I want to see this time.

  • The Transmara or the Mara triangle has the best collection of Kenya’s wildlife. Be sure to visit it. A compact extension of the Serengeti with all you could wish to see.  more »
