Moreover, there have been about 95 species of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles as well as over 400 birds species recorded in Maasai Mara National Reserve. Nowhere in Africa has the abundant wildlife as this reserve. For this reason, visitors hardly miss seeing the Big Five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino).

The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1,5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November. The phenomenal wildebeest migration which is a spectacular event in this reserve is the 8th wonder of the world.
