Wildlife in Masai Mara National Reserve
The Masai Mara is teeming with wildlife, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros, and buffalo) and an array of other animals, such as giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, cheetahs, and hyenas. The reserve is particularly famous for its role in the Great Migration, where millions of wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles undertake a treacherous journey in search of fresh grazing lands, crossing the Mara River and facing encounters with predators. Witnessing this awe-inspiring natural spectacle is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that attracts safari enthusiasts worldwide.
When to visit
The best time to visit Masai Mara is during the Great Migration from July to October, but the reserve offers excellent year-round wildlife viewing opportunities.
