It is named in honour of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) who call this corner of Africa home.
It is world renowned for its exceptional wildlife of lions, leopards and cheetahs, elephants and an infinite variety of other species in their natural habitats. It is also home to an excellent year-round concentration of game, bird life species and the annual wildlife migration of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and wildebeest, to and from the Serengeti from July to October, known as ‘the Great Migration. ‘
The region also is dotted with villages of the traditionally dressed indigenous Maasai people. To visit one of the Maasai villages is a rich cultural experience.
