Since the declaration of the Maasai Mara as the 7th wonder the Maasia Mara Game Reserve has become one of the greatest toursit destinations in the world. The fact that the breathtaking wildlife migration (which is what earned it the recognition) is a few months away has not dissipated the surge in tourism numbers. Not even the dry weather as dampened their spirits.

Masai Mara handles 75% of the safari toursits coming to Kenya and this year the number is expected to exceed 80% during the high season starting July. The main road to the Mara has been under repairs for last 15 months or so and is nearing completion. in Early 2007 there were torential rains that had rendered the pak inaccessible, this had placed the enormous park in trouble. With the road almost complete it is now accessible both by air and road.

Some hotels you may consider lodging at while you are there include
