& weather

Wildlife is abundant throughout the year in the Maasai Mara and game viewing is possible at all times. However, the weather and accessibility of certain areas does change depending on the rains which normally arrive between May to June and during November. 

The Maasai Mara is cooler than Nairobi and the Kenyan coast. It sits at an altitude of 5,000 to 7,000 feet above sea level, so it is greener and more moderate in temperature than other regions of Kenya. Temperatures range from 30° C maximum during the day to a cooler 10°C at night.


Ol Seki Mara

Stretching to 200 km² northeast of the Mara Reserve, Naboisho Conservancy includes contributions from over 500 Maasai landowners and conservancy fees paid by tourism partners are directed back to the landowners, providing them with a sustainable livelihood. Naboisho limits the number of tourists permitted to enter thereby reducing the crowds of vehicles and leaving the plains free for wildlife to thrive. Research indicates that Naboisho has one of the highest densities of lion in Africa. The conservancy also has impressive numbers of elephant, giraffe, and other plains game in addition to hosting some of the rarest animals in Kenya such as Wild Dog.
