The Maasai Mara National Reserve (commonly known as Masai Mara) is a large national game reserve in Narok County, south-west Kenya, contiguous with the Serengeti National Park in Mara Region, Tanzania. The area is described for the circles of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area.

It is globally famous for its unique population of Masai lions, African leopards and Tanzanian cheetahs plus the annual migration of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti plain every year from July to October, famously known as “The Great Migration“.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is only a fraction of the Greater Mara Ecosystem, which includes the following Group Ranches: Koiyaki, Lemek, Ol Chorro Oirowua, Olkinyei, Siana, Maji Moto, Naikara, Ol Derkesi, Kerinkani, Oloirien, and Kimintet.

Major Events:

  • The major event is Masai Mara River crossing by millions of wildebeest and the crocodiles attempt to catch as many wildebeest as possible to accomplish their annual ever feast.
  • In July and August wildebeest cross Masai Mara river in their way to Masai Mara Reserve. Hungary crocodiles try to catch as many wildebeest as possible for a feast and the whole action become complex, very confusing and adventurous to guests who are watching. In November the same event occurs when the migration is on its way back to the Serengeti Plain
