Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve covers 583 square miles and borders Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, making up a contiguous region that is ground zero for the Great Migration – nature’s greatest phenomenon where 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant and giraffe are on an endless race for survival. Witnessing this event, which takes place year-round but is constantly on the move, is something that will make you feel very much alive and grateful for the privilege of travel and the importance of respecting the planet. You’ll see Africa’s Big Five and then some here – elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, rhino, cheetah, giraffe, hippos, crocodiles and more. Wake up to an echoing lion’s roar. Listen to the sounds of the wild as you fall asleep. Meet with the majestic Maasai tribe and understand the roots of their traditions and rituals.
