Safari for Solo travelers in Masai Mara – Is Masai Mara Safe for Solo travelers – Masai Mara tours for Single travelers
Safari for Solo travelers in Masai Mara – A safari for a solo traveler in the Masai Mara National Reserve is an exciting wildlife experience in one of the world’s top safari destinations, whichever way you choose to travel.
Self-drivers will have the freedom to explore the National Reserve on their own, while if you would prefer to join up with a group, there are plenty of options for organized tours, ranging from budget-friendly safaris where you stay at campsites, all the way up to the most luxurious and exclusive camps and lodges.
Traveling on a tour is by far the most affordable way to experience the Masai Mara National Reserve. Independent travelers looking to meet other travelers will have opportunities to socialize with other people at their lodge or camp either on a game drive or at dinner.
If you are looking to stay in a big hotel or lodge with lots of facilities, then pick a property in the eastern sector of the Masai Mara National Reserve or outside the entry gates, as this is where the biggest concentration of large hotels is. For a quieter wilderness experience, choose to stay at a lodge in either the Mara Triangle or on one of the private conservancies, where guest numbers are limited and camps tend to be small and intimate.
