Masai Mara. Backed by the spectacular Esoit Oloololo Escapement, watered by the Mara River and littered with an astonishing amount of wildlife it is a world-renowned reserve. It is 1510 sq km of open rolling grasslands, the northern extension of the equal agglomeration of the Narok. (Managed by the county government of Narok county) and the trans-Mara National Reserve (managed by Mara Conservancy)
Although the concentration of wildlife is typically highest in the swampy area around the reserve`s western edge, superior roads draw most visitors to the eastern side. The big cats, lions are found in large pride everywhere and it is not uncommon to see them hunting. Cheetahs and leopards are less visible but still fairly common. Elephants, buffaloes, Zebras, and hippos also exist in large numbers.
About Antelopes, the black-striped Thomson`s gazelle and larger Grant`s gazelle are most prevalent, although the numbers of impalas, topis, Coke`s hartebeests, and wildebeests aren`t far behind. Other common animals include Masai Giraffes, baboons, warthogs, jackals, bat-eared foxes, and matriarchal clans of spotted hyenas. The few dozen of black rhinos are very shy to be spotted.
The ultimate attraction is undoubtedly the annual wildebeest migration in July, and August although sometimes the wildebeest migration might extend up to early October.
When millions of these ungainly beasts move north from the Serengeti seeking lusher grass before turning southern around October. While you`re more likely to see endless columns grazing or trudging along rather than dramatic TV-style river fordings, it is nonetheless a staggering experience.
