The Masai Mara National Reserve is in the southwestern part of Kenya and forms part of the greater eco-system that encompasses the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The Masai Mara (also spelled Maasai Mara) is one of the best known and most visited reserves in Africa. The park is surrounded by concession areas and tribal lands of the Maasai tribes people. These are unfenced from the Mara and act as a buffer zone for the National Park and form part of the migration area. At times, certain parts the Park can get a little overrun with tourist minibuses, so it is recommended to select your time and destination carefully. The Masai Mara consists of open Savannah, rolling grasslands and undulating hills. July to September sees the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle coming from the plains of the Serengeti. Driven by dry conditions in the Serengeti and led by the lightning and thunder to the north, huge herds of mammals cross the Tanzanian border and rivers to reach the Mara's grasslands. (b,l,d)
