Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara National Reserve is Kenya’s premier wildlife park. It was established in 1961 to protect wildlife from hunters. The Masai Mara in located in southwestern of Kenya on the Tanzania’s border. The reserve is located in the Rift Valley with Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains running along its southern end. The Mara River runs through the reserve hosting plenty of crocodiles and hippos, and making the annual migration of over a million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands zebras an extremely dangerous undertaking. The wildlife is abundant and the gentle rolling grasslands ensure that animals are never out of sight. Birds, too, are prolific. Including migrants, well over 450 species have been recorded, among them, 57 species of birds of prey. Between July and October, the 'Great Wildebeest Migration' is unparalleled. From Serengeti in Tanzania, half a million wildebeest joined by 100,000 zebras from the Loita hills in the east of Masai Mara, start the migration to Kenya's Masai Mara across the border. They are attracted by the fresh grass in the Masai Mara. After the grass is fully grazed and done, the migration back to the Serengeti starts in October.
