Best Time to Visit Masai Mara in 2021: All year round, the Masai Mara is recognized for its superb animal watching. However, the ideal time to visit the Mara is from July to October if you want to see the big wildebeest migration in action. See what to expect from one season to the next below.
Best Time to see Lions in Masai Mara (January to March)
January to March is the best time to see lions in Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The lion season occurs when the majority of Great Plains game species, such as wildebeest and zebras, are giving birth to their young. Maasai Mara is studded with small children following their moms for a few weeks at the start of the year. Along with the swarms of new-born calves come the predators. The Masai Mara Game Reserve and Mara Naboisho have one of Africa’s greatest populations of predators, including lions. During this season, you may expect to encounter lions on a frequent basis, typically in groups.
All year, the Masai Mara and Naboisho reserve provide countless days of excitement. Because there hasn’t been much rain, the foliage has thinned down, making it easier to spot animals on a Masai Mara game drive safari.
Rainy Season in Mara (From April to June)
Early spring, often known as the Green Season, is an especially beautiful time to visit the Masai Mara. These are the months that generally receive the most rainfall. The savannah becomes clean, free of dust and cloud, allowing Africa’s breathtaking vistas to shine. The synchronized birth of hundreds of juvenile antelopes, impalas, kudus, waterbucks, and other species attracts a variety of predators, and you have a good chance of seeing them in action.
This is also the ideal season for bird watching, as thousands of migrating birds arrive to take up colorful home on the savannah. A variety of birds find refuge and food in the lovely flowering trees and flowers. Aside from the spectacular magnificence of the season, travelers traveling during the Green Season benefit from lower rates and fewer visitors than during peak seasons. Going on a Masai Mara safari with Basecamp during the green season is the perfect way to spend Easter Break.
Best Time for Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara (July to September)
The Great Wildebeest Migration is justifiably regarded as one of nature’s most awe-inspiring displays. The Great Migration, which includes about 1.5 million wildebeest, zebras, and antelopes, is the world’s only surviving multi-species migration. From the end of June onwards, millions of newly arriving brown and black specks strew the immense plains of the Mara, adding to the awe of this Natural Wonder of the World.
Witnessing the Great Migration with a Basecamp in Mara gives a new dimension to this Natural Wonder of the World. A safari with our Maasai guides will offer you with a deeper, more profound grasp of the delicate nuances of the Masai Mara environment. Nobody understands the Mara better than the Maasai: they are real naturalists. We are able to deliver real safari experiences that leave our visitors with lifetime memories, a feeling of purpose, and a desire to engage because of our long time commitment to the Maasai community.
Best Time for Wildlife Viewing in Masai Mara (October to November)
From mid-October to December, the herds accelerate their speed as the brief rains entice them south. Because of the frequent grazing by vast herds of zebra and wildebeest, the grass on the Mara plains is short. When the rains stop and the grass starts to dry up, the wildebeest migrate south in search of fresh grazing. The Northern Migration arrives in the Mara just in time to see their Southern sisters and brothers after traveling through Naboisho Conservancy- a family reunion with almost 1.5 million people! The Northern Migration passes through Naboisho again on their route back to Lloita, remaining with us until the end of the year. This is an excellent time to observe the Migration as it moves from the Masai Mara back into the Serengeti’s north-eastern savanna.
Conclusion: Masai Mara National Reserve is a spectacular wilderness vacation destination in south-western Kenya, with an excellent climate and superb year-round wildlife watching.
