The reserve is home to some of the most diverse collection of animals, not just the ‘Big Five’ but also the ‘Big Nine’ most of which can be seen during a safari tour in Masai Mara. Though the wildbeest migration season from July to September is the highlight of the year, a Masai Mara safari is a rewarding experience all year round.
