Cheap Masai Mara Safari Camps To Stay While On Safari in Kenya

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life and escape into the exquisite beauty that nature has to offer. Nature, especially one that is wild and unspoilt, can fuel your wanderlust in a remarkable way.

Endless stretches of green and brown are quickly broken up by silver lines of rivers to make for a picturesque view. 

Grasslands and lush forests teeming with rare wildlife will leave you awestruck, giving you the break you've been looking for. You can find all this, and so much more, at the world-renowned tourist attraction - the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The game reserve is situated in Kenya within the county of Narok. 

The game reserve rightly claims its title as the home to an abundance of wildlife, including the Big Five. The icing on the cake, however; has got to be the Wildebeest migration. This natural spectacle that is considered the seventh wonder of the world, takes place within the borders of Tanzania and Kenya. 

As spectacular and popular as this game reserve may be, some people often hold back due to the prices. One way to make your safari experience within the Masai Mara cheaper is by camping. Below, we take a look at a few cheap Masai Mara safari camps to consider when going on a safari trip in  Kenya
