Lions in Masai Mara Safaris

When you embark on a Masai Mara Safari you will have the opportunity to see the Big Five animals - Lion, Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, and Rhinoceros. Apart from the Big Five, you will also see different species of small as well as large animals, in addition to numerous bird species. The wild animal and plant life in the Masai Mara Game Reserve maintains the ecosystem in the larger Masai Mara-Serengeti ecosystem. The world-renowned Wildebeest migration takes place at specific times every year. When the migration brings animals to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, it draws with it numerous herds of zebras, Impalas, and other herbivores. Predators pursue and feast on the large herds of wildebeests, but the numbers always remain too great to be exhausted in the hunting spree. The bird-life found in the Masai Mara Makes makes it an ornithologists' paradise. More than 450 different species of birds have been recorded in the Masai Mara Game Reserve alone. Some of the bird species are migratory and move to their home regions at different times of the year. The rest of the birds in the Masai Mara Game Reserve are endemic to the region, relying on the vegetation cover in the reserve for their habitat.

Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara

The Masai Mara Game reserve gives you the opportunity to see humans and animals interact in an unrestricted environment. The Masai people have dwelt in the region for centuries. Their peaceful co-existence with the wild animals has remained a rare and interesting spectacle for visitors to the region. The Masai live in hedged homesteads called manyattas, which keep off the wild animals. However, you might see a Masai herdsman looking after his grazing cattle during your Masai Mara Safari, which means they share an intimate relationship with the wild, one which does not seem to end soon. Tap into the rich wealth of cultural knowledge and information during a visit to a Masai Manyatta.
