Designated a national reserve in 1974, the Maasai Mara is Kenya’s most popular tourist destination. Part of the greater Serengeti Mara ecosystem, the Mara is home to some of the highest numbers of wildlife in the world.
The Mara is most famous for the great migration, voted one of USA Today’s new Seven Wonders of the World in 2006. An annual flow of animals around the Serengeti Mara area, the migration brings over a million animals, especially wildebeest and the big cats that love to munch on them, into the Mara between June and October.
However there’s much more to the Mara than this. Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Maasai Mara, together with the surrounding conservancies and group ranches, is one of the most naturally diverse and game-rich ecosystems in the world. Over six million animals reside here, including all safari’s Big Five; around 100 mammal species, 450 bird species and countless reptiles and insects are found here.
The Maasai people, a Nomadic tribe known for their ornately beaded dress and prowess as warriors, gave the area its name and are still found here today; many camps and lodges in the area offer trips to their traditional villages. While animal- and bird-spotting on a game drive is probably the most popular activity in the reserve, the conservancies around the reserve offer all sorts of other ways to view the wealth of wildlife. Rides in a hot air balloon, horse safaris, game walks and scenic flights over the Mara are all available here.
