About Masai Mara Game Reserve

The Masai Mara is home to an excellent year-round concentration of game and is renowned for its annual visit by the two million animals that make up the Great Migration. Covering an impressive 1 115 km² (430 square miles), the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife and endless plains. The Masai Mara was made famous by the book Out of Africa by Karen Blixen, which was later made into a movie starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep.

The Masai Mara is regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing and is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the world. The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment. The eastern end is closest to Nairobi and hence easier to access by tourists.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is the ‘Seventh Wonder of the World’ due to the annual migration of over a 1.3 million wildebeest from the Serengeti plains to the Mara.

The sheer spectacle of this event draws visitors keen to witness one of the planet’s largest and most fascinating natural cycles to Kenya each year and it is this remarkable event that saw the Mara ranked as one of the new Severn Wonders.

It is also globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs.
