Maasai Mara National Reserve
Kenya's premier safari destination, the Maasai Mara National Reserve is the world's most famous game reserve due to its annual wildebeest migration. It is situated in the southwest of Kenya, in the Rift Valley, bordering with Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. The Maasai Mara National Reserve consists of 1510 square kilometers, made up of three group ranches such as the Mara Triangle, Musiara, and Sekenani, all under the control of the local country councils.
Often described as one of the greatest nature stages, the Maasai Mara National Reserve, with its huge dramatic skies, is the most popular of all Kenya's game parks. The landscape, which is mostly savanna, hosts approximately 22 families of lions and 3000 elephants, with over 450 species of animals recorded here. This park is famous for herds of elephants, buffaloes, wildebeests, and zebras that roam its plains. The Mara River is one of the best places to observe hippos and crocodiles.
Although the months of July, August, and September are the months when the Maasai Mara plains are filled with migrating wildebeests and zebras, there is also resident wildlife year round. The famous Maasai tribesmen live within the dispersal area of this game reserve.
Lake Nakuru National Park
This game park is a two-hour drive from Nairobi. This park is famous for the millions of pink flamingos on the shores of Lake Nakuru. The park was named as the world's greatest bird spectacle. You can also find the Big Five and other wild animals.
