The Masai Mara got its name from the local people who called the land “Mara” meaning ‘spotted’ in Maa (Masai langauge), referring to both the landscape, which is patched with groves of acacia and thorn bushes, and the colours of the various animals dotted around its vast, open grasslands.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is well known for its abundance of big cats and diversity of wildlife and birdlife. From July to October, more than 1.5 million wildebeest & zebra begin to form a single herd that migrates from the Serengeti into the Mara making it one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles.
