MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVEKenya, Rift Valley Province
The Maasai Mara National Reserve is a must-see for anyone visiting Kenya! This beautiful reserve offers safari experiences for first-timers and old hands alike.
It comprises 1,500 sq. km of seemingly endless plains of short sweet grasses, ample feeding for the region’s plentiful herbivores.
Two rivers, the Mara and the Talek, race through the reserve, providing sustenance for a wide range of wildlife. And the Mara, of course, is host to the most spectacular sights of the world-famous Great Migration!
Yes, this is Great Migration country. The migration may not take a specific route as it progresses from the Serengeti through the Loliondo, Moru Kopjes, Seronera, Grumeti and Ikorongo regions, for it is steered by factors such as the location of the best grasses and the prevalence of predators. Nevertheless, the arrival of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, eland and impala in the Maasai Mara is guaranteed – as is the crossing of these animals over the swift-flowing Mara River!
