National Geographic WILD's Big Cat Week Visits Maasai Mara
As National Geographic’s annual Big Cat Week returns, Virgin Limited Edition's Mahali Mzuri, the luxury tented safari camp in the Maasai Mara, reopens for real life big cat viewing.
National Geographic WILD’S annual Big Cat Week returns next week, and, to celebrate, is releasing a one hour film from Dereck and Beverly Joubert called Jade Eyed Leopard on September 7th. Filmed entirely in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in Kenya, which is home to, among others, the luxury tented safari camp of Virgin Limited Edition's Mahali Mzuri, the film is the fascinating story of a female leopardess.
Just like the film, Mahali Mzuri shares a ringside view to some of the most awe-inspiring wildlife viewing there is in the Maasai Mara and its expert guides are only too happy to share their frequent sightings of resident leopards in the conservancy--just like the story of Toto. Mahali Mzuri also happens to be right in the path of the annual Great Migration and where one of the biggest cat populations in the whole of the Maasai Mara can be found.
After nearly five months of closure, the luxury tented safari camp reopened for guests at the beginning of August. Just in time for the world famous migration, and as it patiently awaits the arrival to enter the Olare Motorogi Conservancy itself, guests are once again being treated to twice-daily game drives led by expert guides, and 12 luxurious tented suites that look out onto some of the world’s most stunning scenery.
