Home to a variety of wildlife, the remarkable Maasai Mara is one of Kenya’s wildlife reserves where you can, with luck, see all the Big Five mammals in a single morning. Famous for its annual migration of millions of wildebeest, the Maasai Mara stretches out over a flat grassy plain and provides endless photographic opportunities. Many species of wildlife are comfortable with the game viewing vehicles and come up close for the perfect picture. Also visit Lake Nakuru, a very shallow and strongly alkaline lake 39 square miles in size. Set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodlands and grasslands next to the town of Nakuru, the landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with forest on the eastern perimeter.
