Most people must have dreamed of spending their holiday in somewhere far from home. Tropical places like the Caribbean and Hawaii are probably two of the most famous destinations for the white sand beaches and beautiful sunsets, but some of you might want another experience that is still a bit uncommon: a holiday in the wilderness. This means that you will be in a location close to a wildlife reserve, and you will be able to see a spectacular landscape full of animals in their habitat. One of the places where you can have this adventure is in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.
About the Wildlife Reserve
The Masai Mara National Reserve is located in South West Kenya and is close to the famous Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It stretches 1,510 square kilometers and is mainly covered with grasslands, where shrubs and trees growing along the rivers Mara and Talek. The conservatory area is known to be the house to more than 95 species of animals that include lions, black rhinoceros, elephants, leopards, and buffalos. Animals like wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle migrate to the area from the Serengeti throughout July to October.
Accommodations and Attractions
Apart from the extraordinary view of the rich East African ecosystem, tourists can spend their night at the luxurious resorts that are located inside the Masai Mara area. There are different kinds of resorts around the river areas where the trees and shrubs are vast. You can either check into luxury tents and lodges, which are rather inexpensive, or to a pricy hotel. The price for these resorts can range from below 10,000 Kenyan Shilling to 30,000 and up for the expensive ones per night. To make your vacation better, ask your tourism advisors for more information.
