One Day trip of the Masai Mara is one of the favorite experiences from Nairobi. Mara is one of the most popular game reserves in Kenya as it has the highest population of animals and they are easy to see. Masai mara one day trip although very rigorous is very rewarding as you get to see the big five animals in a single day; something that you won’t be able to see in any other park in Kenya.

Why Is Masai Mara So Popular For Game Drives?

Masai mara game reserve has more than 5 million animals which includes the big five and thousands of other animals. There are millions of herbivores and grazers in Masai mara which can be seen virtually everywhere you look in the game reserve.

The grazers support the biggest concentration of big cat carnivores than anywhere you have ever seen in the world. Some of the largest lion prides have more than 40 individuals and the smallest pride will have 10 individuals. It’s only in Masai mara that you can see a leopard with a lot of ease.

Which Animals are found In Masai Mara?maramigration

Some of the animals found in Masai Mara include the lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, giraffes, hippos, hyenas, hartebeests, wildebeests, silver backed jackals, Thompson gazelles, impalas, baboons, zebras and many others. The elephants and lions are so used to the vehicles that the lions will use your cars shade and hold you hostage for hours. A cheetah family will jump onto the roof or hood of your car to scan the fields for prey. They can also peep into the car to see if everyone is ok with that.

Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara Game Reserve

The biggest attraction in Masai mara comes between July and October when over 2 million animals move for more than 3000 km in a cyclic route in search of pasture and following the rainfall patterns to the north. The animals include the vast majority of wildebeests, gazelles and zebras. The great wildebeest migration is so huge that it is part of the 8th wonders of the world. You can do a day trip to Masai mara during the migration to see this phenomenon even for a day.

Can You do a 1 Day Masai Mara Day Trip from Nairobi?

The Masai mara one day trip is a difficult trip to make in a day but it is possible if you depart very early from Nairobi. It takes 5hours from Nairobi to Masai mara and another five back. This trip will tire you, it will exhaust you and will be rough; but the reward is worth the time and the over 16hr experience. You will get to see the biggest meeting of wildlife and possibly see all the big five animals namely the Lions, Elephants, Buffalos, Leopards and Rhinos. If it is during the wildebeest migration, you will take the most wonderful pictures of millions of the animals in motion and possibly even capture a real cheetah hunting chase or lion kill.Cristiano-baby-elephant-run-Mara
