1.672 m2 of broad savanna, gentle hills and meadows – this is Masai Mara, Kenya’s most renowned game reserve. In Masai language it means “the land that never ends”.
The reserve is renowned for the largest population of lions in Africa. Who wants to get good (photographic) shots at the African “Big Five” – elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo, has good chances here in Masai Mara. Apart from these the reserve is home to cheetahs, hyenas, giraffes, antilopes and gazelles in large numbers. The shallow waters of Mara River houses hippos and crocodiles.
July to September the Masai Mara is stage for the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. Millions of them pass the area on their annual trail from Serengeti, looking for water and fresh grass, followed by prides of lions. Their crossing of the Mara River, hunted by crocodiles, is an amazing, unforgettable natural spectacle.
