A once in a lifetime adventure must surely be a Kenya safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve - its timeless beauty and rich fauna and flora is something to behold. The annual wildlife migration that sees thousands of Wildebeest and Zebra trekking to new grazing pastures is an extraordinary event which has been happening for around 2 million years.
The mystique and allure of the Masai Mara plains continues to this day. The Great Migration is an awe-inspiring spectacle, thousands upon thousands of animals moving with one single purpose, and it is survival of the fittest. This unforgettable game viewing event is not for the fainthearted, but it is testament to the cycle of life in this wilderness.
The migration occurs between July and September, returning again between October and December. Mara Serena Safari Lodge has a birds eye view of the Masai Mara, ringside seats as it were for this annual spectacle.
Travelling from Nairobi by car takes 6-7 hours due to the condition of the road, and so guests generally opt for a flight out of Nairobi directly to the private landing strip at Mara Serena Safari Lodge. The airstrip is 2km from Mara Serena Safari Lodge and guests will be met by a lodge representative and transferred to the lodge.
