The Masai Mara is regarded as the most favorite and is definitely
the most popular game reserve in Kenya. The Masai Mara National
Reserve lies approx 270km west of Nairobi and covers an area of
approximately 1,510 sq km, bordering with the Serengeti National
Park in Tanzania. The landscaped is mostly open Savannah grasslands
and acacia shrubland.
Starting any time from late July the wildebeest follow the rains and
grazing to the wide and open grasslands of what has become known as
"the Mara". They may be late, but they will always make the trip,
driven by dry conditions in the Serengeti and led by the lightning
and thunder to the north. Come November they start the homeward leg,
bound again for the Serengeti.
At this time of the year you will see a large number of lion, hippo,
crocodile and vultures all of which prey on the weak and young
migrating animals. Other game to be found in the Masai Mara at any
time of the year include; elephants, cheetahs, baboons, gazelles,
giraffes, jackals, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, water buffalo,
ostriches, and a large variety of antelope and birdlife.
