Masa mara is one of the most famous safari parks of Kenya. It is probably the park with the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa. The gazelles and other smaller antelopes can be seen roaming freely undisturbed. The buffaloes lift their head and sniff the air as the vehicles pass by. Sensing no danger, the go about their business of feeding.
The term Masai mara means the spotted land of the Masai. The Masai community have coexisted here with the wildlife for centuries. They live on the outskirts of the reserve. Noticeably, they no longer drive their huge herds into the reserve. There is no more competition for grazing lands with the wildlife.
At night, lions can be heard roaring from a distance. Same case, if you are keen, most of the nights you can hear the hyenas ‘laughing’ after they have managed to get some bite.
It is the home of the famous Kenya wildebeest migration. The beests flock in from Serengeti and pour into the plains of the Masai mara. The preying animals have such an easy time making kills while the crocodiles lay in wait in the murky waters. Eventually the wildebeests do cross the river, and crocodiles take their share of the wildebeest cake. The cameras are busy click click recording memories that will be treasured forever.
