A 5 days Masai Mara migration budget camping safari to the world famous Bird Sanctuary of Lake Nakuru, then South over the Mau Escarpment to Kenya's greatest concentration of game - the Masai Mara
Lake Nakuru is a very shallow strongly alkaline lake 62 km2 in extent. It is set in a picturesque landscape of surrounding woodland and grassland next to Nakuru town. The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with a Euphorbia forest on the eastern perimeter.
The lake catchments is bounded by Menengai crater to the north, the Bahati hills to the north east, the lion hill ranges to the east, eburu crater to the south and the mau escarpment to the west. Three major rivers, the njoro, makalia and enderit drain into the lake, together with treated water from the town's sewage works and the outflow from several springs along the shore.
Lake Nakuru was first gazetted as a bird sanctuary in 1960 and upgraded to National Park status in 1968. A northern extension was added to the park in 1974 and the lake was designated as a Ramsar site in 1990. The foundation of the parks food chains is the cyanophyte spirulina platensis which can support huge numbers of lesser flamingo.
Masai Mara is the most famous wildlife conservation area in Kenya and indeed the world. This game reserve is home to an amazing variety of wildlife in a natural and untouched state.
Masai Mara has a rolling savannah landscape dotted with patchy shrubs and bush thickets,and is the Kenyan part of the large ecosystem stretching south to Serengeti in Tanzania.
The wildlife in Masai Mara is varied, ranging from the big cats to elephant, rhino and vast herds of herbivores such as wildebeest. A true animal kingdom if there ever was one.

Masai Mara Safari
There are several safari options by road to the Masai Mara. Usually, these start from Nairobi, and include a scenic 5 to 6 hour drive down to the Sekenani gate or to the North West part of the reserve.
Accommodation is in lodges which offer quality service, rooms, and usually excellent buffet meals on a full board basis. Safaris are usually for a minimum of 2 nights and 3 days, although it is possible to have a quick one night safari here as well, although this is too short to really sample the magic of the Masai Mara. Flying Safaris to Mara are also available.

Maasai children - behind them is a mud hut known as a "manyatta" The Maasai Tribe
This warrior tribe of nomadic pastoralists are descendants of Nilotic and Cushitic people originally from north of Lake Turkana over 10 centuries ago. Their life is dominated by their herds of their cattle and livestock.
They often move hundreds of kilometers with large herds of livestock in search of water and rich pastures. The Masai diet is based on fresh curdled milk and meat from their livestock.
Centuries ago the Maasai were feared as ruthless conquerors and cattle rustlers who invaded other tribal areas in search of bigger grazing land and more cattle. The Maasai are also famous for drinking a mixture of cattle blood and milk during ceremonial rites. An arrow is shot at close range to punture the jugular vein of the cow...More...

Like most third world countries, Kenya has growing land pressure issues, with the increasing population ever searching for more land to live and cultivate on. The Mara has it's share of land-animal-population conflict.
This is an issue being taken up by government, conservation bodies and NGO's. Funds are a major problem when it comes to conservation and often, organizations involved in conservation bodies.
