Day 8 Mara North Conservancy
Spend the day exploring the vast wildlife areas of the Mara North Conservancy, a beautiful private wilderness area of more than 30,000 hectares. It is a vital part of the Masai Mara ecosystem as it forms the north-western zone, bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve in the south of Kenya. Professional management ensures guests of a truly exclusive and private safari experience with a very low vehicle density. The Masai Mara is famous for its unique concentration of wildlife, birds, rich vegetation and open savannah. It has been classified one of the "Seven Wonders of the World" due to the extraordinary annual migration (July October) when over 1.3 million wildebeest and zebras cross from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara in search of greener pastures. Less famous, yet very impressive, is the Loita Hills migration, where thousands of local wildebeest come to the Mara North Conservancy between December and May.
