Wild Beasts in Masai Mara

The Masai Mara National Reserve (also spelled "Maasai Mara" and known by the locals as 'the Mara') is a large GameReserve in South-Western Kenya, which is effectively the northern continuation of the Serengeti National Park game reserve in Tanzania.
Named after the Maasai people (the traditional inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from afar - "Mara", which is Maa (Maasai language) for "spotted": an apt description for the circles of trees, scrub, savannah and cloud shadows that mark the area.
Masai Mara, "spotted" with bushes, animals, cloud shadows, and umbrella acacia trees.

It is famous for its exceptional population of Big Cats, game, and the annual migration of Zebra, Thomson's Gazelle and Wildebeest from the Serengeti every year from July to October, a migration so immense it is called the Great Migration.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is only a fraction of the Greater Mara Ecosystem, which includes the following Group Ranches; Koiyaki, Lemek, Ol Chorro Oirowua, Olkinyei, Siana, Maji Moto, Naikara, Ol Derkesi, Kerinkani, Oloirien and Kimintet.
