Bordering Tanzania, in the northern extension of the Serengeti and forms a wildlife corridor between the two countries lies Maasai Mara , one of the world’s most magnificent game reserves. It’s named after the statuesque, red-cloaked Maasai people who live in the park and graze their animals here as they have done for centuries.

The park is famous for the Great Migration when thousands of wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle travel to and from the Serengeti, from July through October.  The park is also known for providing excellent predator sightings thanks to its relatively large populations of lion, cheetah, and leopard and In the Mara River, throngs of hippos and crocodiles lurk.
