Mara Triangle offers almost everything that Masai Mara offers except for huge number of vans and landcruisers! Lion sightings here are more frequent and without some 40 vans and landcruisers chasing them, they are far more relaxed. We stayed at Mara Engai which has amazing...More

Good game sighting in December ( cheetah, lions, plenty of elephants, lots of birds). Even better in August with the migration and the Mara river-crossing!

Famous for the Mara river and the wildebeest crossing that is roughly happening August to October. It can get very busy especially at the crossings

The triangle is separate from the rest of the Mara and is policed much more carefully and thoroughly by rangers preventing huge numbers of vehicles conglomerating at the same place. It is a much more pleasurable area to observe the wildlife
