​Located in Kenya, East Africa, Masai Mara is a nature reserve known for its abundance of wildlife and ease of spotting myriad species of animals. The best time to visit is July to September.

​Masai Mara is one of Bollywood's recent favourite holiday destinations. Tap ahead to know six reasons that make it so popular.

​1. Home to Africa's famous big five

​An integral part of a trip to Masai Mara is spotting Africa's famous big five animals - lion, leopard, elephant, black rhinoceros, and African buffalo.

​2. Glamping

​There are several stay options in Masai Mara. If you're someone who wants the perks of camping but doesn't want to give up on luxuries, glamping stays are a great option. Glamping is a favourite among honeymooners.

​3. Dine in the wild

​Many resorts and glamping sites can arrange for you a meal experience in the wild. Think bonfire, barbeque and more.

​4. Birding

​Masai Mara is a treat for not just land and water creature lovers but also bird enthusiasts. Red-winged Schalow's turaco, white-tipped crest, orange buff Pel's fishing owl - these are a few of the feathered friends you can expect to see.

​5. Adventure activities

​Apart from the wildlife safari, you can also opt for nature walks, hot air balloon rides, horseback riding, kayaking, snorkelling, and many other activities.

​6. The Great Migration

​Watch over a million wildebeest, lakhs of zebra, and thousands of eland and gazelles trek from Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara. This happens between July and October.
