Masai Mara National Reserve offers an absolutely unique variety of animals.

The banks of the rivers are covered in thick forest, which gradually makes way for bush and grassland.The abundance of water and excellent availability of food are the reasons why the Masai Mara, which in fact is a continuance of the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park, has the greatest population of wild animals in the whole of Africa. There is a particularly dramatic spectacle from July to November, the annual migration of huge herds of Gnus and Zebras. Predators such as Hyenas, Jackals, Leopards and Lions of course, closely follow these herds. There is no place where more of these latter may be soon than in Masai Mara.
