Masai Mara National Reserve
No amount of superlatives can describe the massive river of wildlife in the Masai Mara National Reserve. A yearly migration of over 2 million animals tramping over the rolling grasslands of the park. The greatest density of lions in the world. An unending display of wildlife large and small plus hundreds of birds.
This is Kenya’s most popular park. This is where you go to spot Africa’s “Big Five” of lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant. And about 90 other varieties of mammals.
If you want to gaze upon the throne of the wild kingdom you must experience the Masai Mara – its crown jewel.
Named for the Maasai, an ancient nomadic people who live in communities surrounding the reserve, the Masai Mara borders the great Serengeti to the south in Tanzania. Together, the two parks provide the feeding grounds for the millions of zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, topi and eland that cross the Mara River every July in search of rich grasslands.
