Famous around the world for its exceptional, abundant wildlife, the Maasai Mara National Reserve has become known as the seventh Wonder of the World. Offering superb plains scenery, unmatched safari experience and diverse wildlife, the Maasai Mara is definitely a centerpiece of Kenya’s safari experience.
Apart from being home to the famous Big Five, over 100 mammal species and over 450 bird species live within the reserve among other wildlife, including the zebra, gazelle, antelope, ostrich, giraffe, cheetah, hyena and many more. The Mara also hosts one of nature’s greatest spectacles –
THE GREAT MIGRATION.
It is the largest animal migration in the world and a unique cycle of nature that replenishes the grasslands of East Africa. Watch in awe one of the world’s most dramatic survival stories as herds of wildebeests make their way from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, crossing the crocodile-infested Mara River in search of water and grass. The Wildebeest have to cross the Mara River to continue their journey southwards back to the Serengeti. As herds gather on the banks of the river, the pressure of numbers grow and grow. Suddenly, amidst the thundering of hooves, dust, primal grunting and manic jostling for position, the pressure becomes too much. A frantic leap, a slip, a slide, or a wild dive. And crossing the Mara River begins.
Survival of the fittest.
It’s murderous mayhem because crocodiles know about the migration too! They look forward to it. And guess where they are? They’re cruising in the river, or waiting on the banks to capture the wildebeests. In their desperate attempts to swim to the other bank, many animals drown, are swept downstream or get eaten by crocodiles. It’s a gloriously vicious spectacle.
While in the Mara, enjoy other activities such as bush breakfasts, sundowners, walking and horseback riding safaris and visits to Maasai villages to gain an insight into the culture and traditions of the local communities.
