Masai Mara Migration With Sandeep Nagaraja

Being in the heart of the Great African Rift Valley in Kenya, the Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the largest in the world. The vast, open grasslands of this area are inhabited by a wide variety of wildlife, which includes more than 1.5 million Wildebeests. Owing to its rich biodiversity, Masai Mara is regarded as heaven for nature lovers, especially for wildlife photographers. A trip to Masai Mara offers an unmatched experience of game viewing and camping, among many other things. It is also a delight to interact with the rich cultural heritage of the Masai community.
