Wildlife at Amani

Extraordinary encounters at Amani

Amani Mara is unfenced. The three big cats—lions, cheetahs, leopards—and other big game—elephants, hippos, Cape buffaloes, rhinos, giraffe—as well as gazelles and other plains game, roam freely. Our expert guides ensure your safety and that the adventures awaiting you will make your time with us unforgettable. Having a water source year-round at Amani Mara ensures that wildlife live here year-round. You can annually witness here not one but two wildebeest migrations, the famous ‘Great Migration’ originating in the Serengetti as well as a more local ‘Loita Migration’. Our wildlife haven offers protective habitat also for birds, zebras, eland, crocodiles, and numerous other smaller creatures, including hyena, jackal, warthog, ostrich, mongoose, hyrax, and much more. 

Sully's Wildlife

We invite you to join Amani Mara’s wildlife expert par excellence Sully Suleman on his adventures as he captures wildlife encounters at Amani.  His favourite adventures are with our resident leopard Natito!
