Masai Mara National Reserve

Masai Mara National Reserve

This reserve gets it’s name from the famous Masai tribe, and the Mara river which divides it. Without question, this is the most popular of the Kenyan parks and reserves. This wildlife park gives better options to see all of the Big Five (elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and buffaloes) in one place. The park has probably the biggest lion concentration of Kenya. Moreover, the world-famous wildebeest migration can be watched here every year.

The wildebeest migration is one of the biggest wildlife spectacles on earth. Every year over a million wildebeests, as well as hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras trek from Tanzania to Kenya, right through the Masai Mara reserve and back again in a big circle. Every year they suddenly assemble on Serengeti plains and then start to move all together, as if a mysterious sign has been given. Hungry lions and hyena follow the trek.

Herds of zebras are found throughout the park, as well as Masai giraffes and the common giraffe, hippos, warthogs, jackals, hyenas and bat-eared foxes. Numerous antelopes can be found here, including impala, Grant’s, and Thomson’s gazelles, hartebeests and topi. Additionally, over 450 bird species are present in the reserve including vulture, ostrich, the long-crested eagle, pygmy falcon, secretary bird, marabou, etc.
