An extension of Tanzania’s Serengeti, Maasai Mara is a country of breath taking beauty, a panorama of rolling plains where the maasai derive the name Mara meaning spotted plains .Rounded hills intermittent groves of acacia woodlands and thickets of shrubs. The mara river with its luxuriant riverine forest, bisecting the whole mara with its tributaries. Endowed with an endless animal life with its vast herds of herbivores, the migrating Gnu, the accompanying Zebra, Topi, impala The Tommy Gazelle, the hartebeest, `the biggest antelope’ the Eland.The big and mighty herds of African elephant, the amphibious Hippo in the hippo pools along the river, rare black rhino, the stately maasai giraffe. The king of the jungle reigns in the plains with abandon, with many prides of lions roaming the plains and lying in the grooves. The very swift cheetah and the sly leopard not forgetting the long African crocodile in the mara river.
