The Great Wildebeest Migration:

Undoubtedly the most famous wildlife spectacle in the Maasai Mara, the Great Wildebeest Migration is an awe-inspiring phenomenon that draws visitors from around the world. Witness over two million wildebeest, accompanied by zebras and gazelles, as they brave treacherous river crossings and vast plains in search of greener pastures. From July to October, the Mara becomes a stage for thrilling predator-prey interactions, providing an extraordinary opportunity to observe lions, cheetahs, and hyenas in action. The sheer scale and drama of this natural spectacle will leave you speechless.

The Big Five:

The Maasai Mara is home to an incredible diversity of wildlife, including the iconic Big Five: elephants, lions, leopards, rhinoceros, and buffalo. At Sentinel Mara Camp, embark on exhilarating game drives with our experienced guides who will take you to the best spots for Big Five sightings. Marvel at the sight of herds of elephants gracefully making their way across the savannah, spot the elusive leopard camouflaged in the trees, and feel the thrill of encountering a majestic lion in its natural habitat. The Maasai Mara promises unforgettable encounters with these magnificent creatures.

Cheetahs and Other Predators:

Apart from the Big Five, the Maasai Mara is a haven for cheetahs, the fastest land animals on Earth. With its vast open plains and abundant prey, the Mara offers the perfect hunting ground for these sleek predators. Watch in awe as cheetahs sprint across the grasslands with breathtaking speed and agility. Moreover, witness the stealthy movements of leopards as they prowl through the trees, and the powerful presence of hyenas scavenging for their next meal. The Maasai Mara’s predator population ensures thrilling encounters at every turn.
