The Masai Mara is the setting for one of the seven natural phenomena, the Great Migration. This Wildebeest and Zebra migration is not an annual event so much as a yearly cycle. The Wildebeest and Zebra give birth on the plains of the Serengeti, but as the season dries the land they need to search for fresh grazing and water. They move into the Mara in October, November and December. They cross several Crocodile ridden rivers en-route and these are points of high drama.
Richard’s Camp is located in a private conservation area north west of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This Kenya bush camp is located about 180 kilometres (112 miles) west of the capital Nairobi.
Richards Camp has its own private airstrip near the camp where privately chartered flights can land. There is another airstrip situated about 20 minutes from camp where scheduled flights from Nairobi land twice daily.
