How to Enjoy Masai Mara Safaris

After looking forward to a safari in the Masai Mara, you need to do all it takes to have the best experience. Here are some tips to help you enjoy the best safari at the Mara.

#1 Visit the Mara at the right season

The best time to visit Masai Mara is from July through October because you’ll catch the famous wildebeest migration. The drier months are good because it’s easier to spot the Big Five. When it’s too wet, it’s harder to spot animals because most of them are hidden in the bushes and food is in plenty in the forest so they remain in hidden places.

#2 Spend enough time at the Mara

A 4 to 5 day safari is suitable but it would be even better if you can stay longer because Mara safaris have so much to offer. What you need to avoid is planning a trip that lasts a day or two because you’ll leave having not experienced the beauty of the Mara to the fullest.

#3 Travel with the right people

Having the right people with you when you visit the Masai Mara will certainly ensure you enjoy the best on your trip. If you are going for a holiday then make sure you carry your favorite group of friends. Group Mara safaris can be tricky if you are going with strangers. So make sure you select a team of people you will be comfortable with to enjoy the best experience on your safari.
