Masai Mara has ‘cosy camps for safari holidays’

People who are considering a safari may like to head to the Masai Mara in Kenya, if one writer's comments are anything to go by.

According to Brian Jackman, writing for the Telegraph, the national reserve has cosy camps for westerners who are keen to chill out on safari holidays.

He pointed out parts of the region are being made into born-again sanctuaries for the animals in the country.

"As the Maasai are now discovering, wilderness is the new luxury. The scarcer it gets, the more sought-after it becomes," Mr Jackman added.

He noted the reserve is "unrivalled" in terms of its collection of carnivores, as anyone who has been there will tell others.

These comments come after Melissa Rudd, writing for the African Business Review, stated the Mara is arguably the most famous safari holiday destination.

She recalled spotting cheetahs in the region, as well as the country's so-called Big Five – African Elephant, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, lion and the leopard.
