Join Africa Geographic Travel as we explore the northern-most limits of the Maasai Mara-Serengeti ecosystem in search of the lion prides, cheetahs and leopards made famous by BBC’s popular Big Cat Diaries and Disney’s African Cats series – plus the elephants, plains game, birds, ancient acacias and insanely gorgeous sunsets – all key ingredients in the quintessential Mara experience.
This carefully crafted itinerary will use Sentinel Mara Camp as its base. The camp is perched on the high banks of the Mara River in a cool riverine forest filled with bird song and butterflies while hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes and plains game are ever-present.
Beyond Sentinel Mara Camp lie Musiara Marsh and Paradise Plains – both terrific game viewing grounds and the playground of BBC’s Big Cat Diaries and Disney’s African Cats series.
This area is renowned for its excellent cat sightings with leopards, cheetahs and lions in abundance while other exciting creatures to keep an eye out for include spotted hyena, serval, aardwolf, side-striped and golden jackal. Elephants, buffaloes, and giraffes are also frequently seen while the lucky guest might even see a black rhino.

July and October are considered the best wildlife viewing months in the Maasai Mara because it’s the dry season and visibility is enhanced. The wildebeest migration reaches the Maasai Mara around the end of July and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania.
