The most iconic of safari destinations needs no introduction, and it goes without saying that wildlife viewing here is second to none. See thousands of herd animals living side by side with the Maasai people, and seeing as it’s big cat territory you’ll rarely go for long without encountering fluffy cheetah cubs, or lionesses snoozing in the shade.
Worth particular mention is the annual wildebeest migration which fills the reserve with the sound of thundering hooves for several months each year. The best way to see it has to be at sunset from the basket of a hot air balloon.
Stay in the reserve for the extraordinary volumes of wildlife, or opt for one of the camps in the conservancies for the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity.
