The Masai Mara is well known for the many wildlife that can be seen.
There are some 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve.
Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant, and it is for this reason a visitor hardly misses to see the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino).
Other wild game you could spot on your safari include hippopotami, cheetah, Grant’s gazelle, impala, topi, Coke’s hartebeest, giraffe, Roan antelope and the nocturnal bat-eared fox.
However wildebeest are by far the dominant inhabitants of the Masai Mara. Their numbers are estimated in the millions.
The Great Migration starts in July each year when well over one million wildebeest along with large numbers of Thompson’s Gazelle, zebra and other herbivores migrate from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania to fresh pastures in the north and then back south again in October.
Each year the annual migration is one nature's most eye-inspiring sights when millions of wildebeest and zebra in search of grazing and drinking water reach the Masai Mara from Serengeti and remain there until they make their long and arduous trek back "home" in that period it is like a walking buffet for the lions.
