Summary of Attractions:
The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is an extension of the Serengeti National Reserve in Tanzania. It is not the largest park in Kenya, but probably the most famous. The entire area of the park is nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley that extends from the Mediterranean Sea to South Africa. The terrain is primarily open grassland with clusters of acacia tree. It is the Great Migration centre in Kenya. Wildlife tends to be most concentrated in the western border in the Oloololo escarpment because the swampy ground means that access to water is always good and human disruption is usually minimal.

The riverine forests and shady acacia trees offer the perfect cover for the predators which hunt for the herbivores such as zebra, slender gazelle and antelope which graze the plentiful grasslands. Explore the park further in the pristine Mara Conservancy, which is one of the most densely populated natural wildlife areas in the world.
