Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara is one of the game reserves we have in Kenya. This is one of the reserves that does not miss on any Kenya Safari itinerary! Its lies in south-western Kenya, which is a continuation of Sengeti National Park in Tanzania. The park is located in the Narok County. Mara means spotted from the maasai language. The reserve is famous for its incomparable population of Big Cats, the annual wildebeest migration from the Serengeti every year.
The park is about 1510 sq kms which habours the great annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle from the plains of the Serengeti that cross the Tanzanian border and Mara rivers to reach the Mara’s. This phenomenon happens from July to October every year. These creatures are followed closely by the predators like lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena, jackals and vultures as they try to get a bite from the hunted. Watching them cross Mara river is dramatic.
