is located in
Africa and covers an area of 1500 sq km approximately. Masai Mara is known as the “Jewel of Africa”, a
national reserve with the
largest and the most spectacular wildlife migration in the world . It is
situated on Maasai land. With a concentration of game superseding most
national parks in Africa,
Kenya, the Masai Mara offers an 'Out of Africa'
Masai Mara National Reserve's varied topography
ranges from woodland to savannah grassland to reverine forest, and encompasses
a great diversity of wildlife including the “Big Five” i.e. lion,
leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. The Masai Mara
in Kenya is a must for all first time safari game viewers. While safari game viewing at Masai Mara National Reserve,
the tracks cover
every corner of the Mara reserve; game viewing on foot or specially on
Mara balloon safari adds an exciting dimension to your African safari. Within the boundaries of the
reserve and just outside,
there are several Masai
Mara safari lodges and camps you could stay at.
The annual migration of an estimated 2.2
million wildebeests across the Mara - Serengeti
ecosystem is the largest
wildlife migration in the world. The Mara lions are considered the finest
in Africa. They are not only abundant but also easily recognizable by
their fabulous huge manes. The shy and largely nocturnal Mara leopard
inhabits dense riverine areas. For most visitors,
the sighting of a leopard is the highlight of their visit to the Maasai
Mara in Africa.
The outlying areas of the Masai Mara is home to the Maasai people, a
group of pastorolists who migrated southwards from the Nile areas in the
mid 1600s into southern Kenya.
