Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara National Reserve lies in south western Kenya and is effectively the northern continuation of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It is named after the Maasai people and their description of the area when looked at from afar.
The Mara’s rich ecosystem of open savannah, woodlands and tree-lined rivers attracts a spectacular array of wildlife. Game viewing is excellent all year round in the Mara. It is famed for its Big Cats, as well as the remainder of the Big Five. The famous wildebeest migration is one of the natural wonders of the animal kingdom and is traditionally present in the Mara from around July through September.
