Maasai Mara Game Reserve
Maasai Mara Game Reserve – Masai Mara Safaris.
Maasai Mara Game Reserve is one of the world’s most magnificent game reserves. Bordering Tanzania, the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is the northern extension of the Serengeti and forms a wildlife corridor between the two countries. It’s named after the statuesque, red-cloaked Maasai people who live in the park and graze their animals here as they have done for centuries.
In their language, Mara means “mottled”, perhaps a reference to the play of light and shadow from the acacia trees and cloud-studded skies on the vast grasslands.
The park is famous for the great migration when thousands of wildebeests,
zebras, and Thomson’s gazelle travel to and from the Serengeti from July through October.
In the Mara River, throngs of hippos and crocodiles lurk. The park is also known for providing excellent predator sightings thanks to its relatively large populations of lion, cheetah, and leopard, especially in the dry months from December through February. Thanks to the park’s altitude, the weather here is mild and gentle year round.
