Experiencing Maasai Mara on a Kenya Safari wildebeest Migration : When you think about Kenya safari, I know witnessing the wildebeest migration is the first answer that comes into your minds. But Maasai Mara National Reserve offers you the wide variety of safari activities that offers the tourists the unforgettable safari experiences. Plan your Kenya safari with Focus East Africa Tours to Maasai Mara National Reserve you will not get disappointed.
I’ve made the decision to dedicate this article to you if you’re looking for more ways to enjoy your Kenya safari tour to the Maasai people. I’ll also share with you some of the other amazing things you should consider doing while on this tour of the Maasai plains in Africa.
One of the best ways to explore this magical tropical dry savanna paradise and search for its inhabitants, which include four of the five African big five game the majestic lions, leopards, African bush elephants, and obstinate cape buffaloes is to take a traditional game drive over the endless plains of Maasai Mara in an old school study 4×4 safari van or 4×4 safari jeep, or go on a self-drive safari. During this drive, you won’t miss any other amazing species, such as the wildebeests, who have made this national park one of the top safari sites in Africa that any traveler to Africa should priorities seeing on their bucket list.
Guided Nature walks.
If you’re seeking a close-up experience with the natural world, I recommend exploring the Maasai Mara on foot rather than in a conventional 4×4 safari land cruiser. A stroll through the Maasai Mara National Park allows you to witness the incredible range of life that occurs here, including small reptiles and insects that may not be readily visible if you choose to travel in a 4×4 safari vehicle. The best method for birdwatchers to see some of the 500 different bird species that soar over these lands is to take a nature walk in the savanna plains of Maasai Mara. These species include ostriches, secretary birds, lilac-billed rollers, and Southern ground hornbills.
Hot air balloons.
This is an additional, distinctive method of seeing these unspoiled areas, particularly for people who lack the time for a comprehensive game drive but still wish to see a lot of the reserve without having to spend a lot of time behind the wheel. The Maasai Mara people can be plainly spotted grazing the savanna grasslands below you from a higher view point provided by the hot air balloon rides. I can assure you that witnessing the dawn from this wildlife reserve’s eastern horizon would only bring you happiness.
Cultural encounters. The Maasai Mara, as its name implies, is home to the Maasai people. You’ll find them amusing because of their dress code, which consists of red “sukas” wrapped around their bodies. If you thought that body art was only done by people in large cities in Europe or America, you’ll be shocked to learn that the Maasai do body art that ranges from outrageous Mohawk air cuts to lengthy dreads and large ear piercings all in the name of beautification. Do you dance well? If you’re into dancing, be prepared to be captivated by the Maasai dance moves, which may not resemble anything you’ve ever seen. For example, the Maasai may choose to perform foot stumps and long jumps, which are difficult and should only be performed by very energetic people.
