National Park Masai Mara - is essentially a continuation of the Serengeti reserve, which is located in Tanzania. The name of the park was named after the Masai tribe traditionally inhabiting this region and the Mara River, which divides it.

Map of the great migration of animals

Park Masai Mara is known for a large number of animals living in it and is considered the best in the world in terms of saturation. Here you can see more African top five (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, rhinoceros). Just Masai Mara is known for great migration of animals. At this time, a huge number of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles migrate along the path of the Serengeti - Masai Mara, overcoming 1500 km. During all the way they are being watched predators, both on land and in the air. One of the most fascinating spectacles occurs when animals cross the Mara River, and there they are waiting crocodiles. The exact time of the migration of a changing climate is difficult to predict, but it is roughly from July to October (Map great migration of animals).
Just Masai Mara is home to about 80 species of animals and 450 species of birds. The park is located at an altitude of 1650 m above sea level and covers an area of 1510 km2.
It is possible to explore the reserve with a bird's eye view, a hot air balloon. The flight takes 1 hour and it is a pleasure will cost 400 - 500 dollars.
Accommodation in the national park is represented by democratic bungalows to vip hotels. The entrance to the Masai Mara is $ 80 per person per day, but usually this amount is already included in the tour. To move in the reserve, as well as in most national parks in Kenya can only be on the car because of the predators living here.

We are in the planning of our five-day safari in the Masai Mara allocated two days. In fact, we've got a few hours in the afternoon, after which we returned to our camp, and several hours the next morning. Park himself has made little impression on us than we expected. We did not see lions, which are believed to be rich in the Masai Mara. But I think that the fact that this park is necessary to take at least two full days, that would have had the opportunity to drop deeper into the reserve. And judging by the reviews of tourists Masai Mara park, which produces more impressive in comparison with others. Photo safari in the Masai Mara you can see in this section.
