There are very few places within the continent of Africa that could offer up its secrets both through the antiquity of a famed tribe as well as the reliable viewings of the big game animals whose interactions have long defined that tribe. The country of Kenya, with its colorful Maasai population and its abundance of everything Big 5, performs these tasks impeccably well.
YOUR GUIDE TO KENYA
TOP FOUR THINGS TO DO
Coming across the phrase early in our planning stages of our trip to Kenya, we didn’t even know that “safari fatigue” could have been a real thing. Now, after a completed trip to Maasai Mara and a ton of more knowledge about the topic, we understand that this could indeed be a real issue for many. Yet, somehow, the phenomenon didn’t stand a chance against us.
Before we begin suggesting those invaluable tips that will make your safari experience memorable throughout your and your children’s lifetime, let’s get one thing crystal clear: Maasai Mara covers a huge expanse, which means that if you aren’t very persistent or lucky, chances are that you’ll not going to see the kinds of views of wildlife that brought you here in the first place. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s also lend hopes to your shrinking spirits. If you’re going to the Mara, you will see animals, and lots of them. Just take it from us.
