If you're there at the right time for the great migration (depending on the season), this is the region where the herds are at their most concentrated as they seek to cross the Mara River to reach the open grasslands beyond, and it’s where (if you’re lucky) you’ll see iconic river crossings. It’s also an area of untamed natural beauty, of rolling hills, rivers, forests and open plains. Overnight at Mara Under Canvas Tented Camp
