Average time to visit
The only time to avoid Kenya is during the long rainy season in April and May. November is considered the short rainy season, however, these are less predictable and are much lighter. The best time of year to visit the Maasai Mara is during the Great Wildebeest Migration which tends to pass through the Mara between mid July to late October.

Tangulia is an absolute must in the Mara. Since it is the only camp completely run by Massai, its true authenticity is what makes it so special. The game drives are unique for it is located in a private conservancy so you are able to do off-roading and have minimal vehicles at each sightings. It is also in close proximity to the Mara National Reserve and the Mara Triangle for easy access. The service at Tangulia is quite wonderful and they make you feel so at home, you will be sad to leave. Each night you can sit under the stars for dinner on the beautiful decks looking up at the night sky while chatting with other travellers and staff about the sightings you save that day. Tangulia is a home away from home and is truly a special place.

This lovely little camp has wonderful views over the Mara Triangle and the salt lick below which attracts plenty of game. The tents, albeit a little basic are incredibly comfortable and are perfect for those who really want to go back and really experience the bush. If you are feeling brave request tent number one, a walk away from camp but on the "Hippo Highway" it really makes for an exciting night at camp. Jackson really makes you feel at home and it is a fantastic opportunity having him there to quiz him about anything safari related. Big Cat Diaries was films in the Mara Triangle and he knows the area inside out so you can rest assured your safari experience will be out of this world.

We absolutely loved Tangulia Mara when we visited - it's in the most perfect position overlooking the Olotulo Murt salt lick, which attracts the most extraordinary amount of game. The camp itself is simple but very comfortable, and the highlight here is enjoying game drives with the legendary Jackson Looseyia, who runs the camp. A game drive in his company is always a special occasion, and the game in this Mara triangle area is exceptional. This is a brilliant, simple yet perfect little camp with a great position and extraordinary guiding - definitely one to include for the safari aficionado.
