Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara National Reserve is probably the most famous
and most visited Reserve in Kenya. It offers breathtaking views
(as seen in the film "Out of Africa", much of which was filmed
here), an extraordinary density of animals including "the Big
Five" (lions, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros) and may
varieties of plains game.
The Maasai Mara is predominantly a vast open savannah but
there are actually seven distinct habitats including permanent
marshes, riverine gallery forest, and dense shrubland.
An impressive feature of the Masai Mara National reserve is the
annual migration of the Wildebeest, Zebra and gazelle from the
plains of the Serengeti that cross the Tanzania border and
rivers to reach the Mara lush grassland from late June, hunted
by the predators Lion, Hyena and circled by vultures as the
Their dramatic river crossings are a reality for tourists
visiting in July-October.
