Lenchada Tourist Camp is a budget safari
camp just outside the gates of the Masai Mara
Game reserve, regarded as one of the wildlife
jewels in Kenya. The camp is built with all the
comforts of home, including solar-heated
showers, bed with pillows, sheets, blankets and
mosquito nets. Additionally, as a backup, a
standby generator that supplies lights and
refrigeration for the dining area allows
cellphones and digital cameras to be recharged.
Our Camp is surrounded by a natural environment,
waking up to bird twittering and roaring of
lions, hyena’s monkeys drama in the bush around.
Our camp charms guests with its warm welcome and
rests along a stream valley overlooking
picturesque hills and rolling plains of
Oloolaimutia in Mara National Game Reserve.
The thrill of leaving camp at dawn on a game
drive in search of big cats is only equaled by
the constant stimulation of your senses with the
sights, smells and sounds of the Masai Mara. The
scent of rain begins to draw the Wildebeest
Migration from The Serengeti throughout July,
and soon the planet’s greatest animal migration
is underway. The sight of the migration is
staggering - an endless grey river of wildebeest
mottled with black and white as zebras join the
throng that stretches from one horizon to the
As the morning sun’s golden glow tinges the
horizon, rise above the world on an enthralling
Hot Air Balloon Ride across untamed vistas and
enjoy a birds eye view of nature unfolding. A
visit to an authentic Masai manyatta is an
exciting cultural experience and provides a
personal insight into their ancient traditions.
We tailor design short walks across the
conservancy plains and, for the intrepid
explorer, multiple days of hiking in the Loita
Hills featuring 200kms of forests, breathtaking
waterfalls and spectacular birdlife.
The Masai Mara is an ideal location for your
wedding, honeymoon or renewing your marriage vows.
Your ceremony will be one of your greatest occasions
and we will ensure that you celebrate in style.
Masai Mara Wildebeest
The Great Wildebeest Migration, is one of the “Seven
New Wonders of the World”.
No where in the world is there a movement of animals
as immense as the wildebeest migration, over two
million animals migrate from the Serengeti National
Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the
Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July
through to October.
The migration has to cross the Mara River in the
Maasai Mara where crocodiles will prey on them. This
is one of the highlights as the animals try and
cross the Mara River alive.
In the Maasai Mara they will be hunted, stalked, and
run down by the larger carnivores.
From the western Serengeti the herds head north,
following the rains (or their effects) into Kenya
and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. On their trek the
wildebeests’ path is cut several times by rivers: in
the Serengeti by the Mbalangeti and the Grumeti, and
in Kenya by the Mara. For most of the year these
rivers are relatively placid, but they can become
violent torrents in response to rainfall in their
catchments areas, and then they present major
obstacles to the progress of the wildebeest.
