All about the Maasai Mara.

Mara is a Maasai word for “spotted”. From the air, the visual effect of the Mara thickets looks like spots hence the name of Masai Mara Game Reserve. The Maasai Mara is one of its kind as this is the home of all the big five – rightly named big five – not because of their size but because of each of these animals were highly poached. The Maasai Mara has continued to be a safe haven for these animals as it boasts more than 450 species of birds which includes raptors. This park is home to astonishing number of wildlife, umbrella shaped trees, the beautiful sunsets (always at the same time every day of the year), the winding Mara River and the rugged Ololoolo Escarpment.
