Entrepreneur, actress, and author, Nabila Khashoggi is the co-founder of Mara Intrepids, a luxury tented camp within the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Regarded as the greatest wildlife reserve in Africa, the Maasai Mara National Reserve is one of the most visited wildlife refuges on the planet. Covering nearly 600 square miles in southwest Kenya, the reserve is approximately 165 miles from the country’s capital of Nairobi.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is known for its high concentration of lions and population of other wild cats including leopards, caracals, cheetah, and servals. With nearly 600 species of birds and over 95 mammal species, the reserve hosts an impressive annual migration of an estimated 1.5 million wildebeest, the largest movement of the species on the planet. Each July through October, the wildebeest are joined by 200,000 zebra, 350,000 Thompson’s gazelle, and 12,000 eland in one of Africa’s greatest natural spectacles.

A variety of safaris are available to visitors, including those by foot, horseback, and balloon. There are also scenic flights, game drives, and cultural events, in which visitors can learn about and interact with indigenous Maasai tribesmen.
