tips & insights

When to go

The Masai Mara is at its best during its peak migration period, generally from late July to early October.

Getting there

The Masai Mara is out-of-the-way. It's situated in southwest Kenya along the Tanzania border. It is six hours by car from Nairobi. Some road stretches are rather bumpy, which is why many safari-goers prefer the 45-minute plane ride.
