The third park my dad and I visited Masai Mara, took the cake as definitely the BEST place to see with the most animals, the best variety, and an overall awesome safari experience. Because we went at the end of August, we were there for the MIGRATION, which includes two million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles. This was a very cool experience as you watch the animals cross the Mara River (which divides Kenya and Tanzania) leaving Kenya and going to Tanzania where more food and grass to graze on is available to them.
Sekanani Tented Camp - A highlight of our visit to Masa Mara included our amazing tented camp. This was my favorite place we stayed at –great to save the best for last– and it really completed the true safari experience. The camp we stayed at was owned by an American family (we learned this upon our arrival, total coincidence) who has lived in Africa for 20-plus years since opening the camp.
The Great Migration -The pictures below show the 2 Million animals that cross the river leaving Kenya going to Tanzania. This is done yearly in late August. This year the river was extremely low otherwise you normally see larger groups of animals crossing however with the lower depth it made it hard for them to find spots where there were good paths to enter/exit the water from either side of the river.
Tanzania/Kenya Border - We went to the border and saw the River as well as the official divider line (shown below). There are a ton of Hippopotamus in the River by the border. FYI, the pink ones mean that they are sick, very sad but their color was super interesting (pink being my favorite color!).
