The Masai Mara is the ultimate safari destination at 1510 km² of preserved savannah along the Tanzanian border. Rolling grasslands dotted with acacia trees create a quintessential African bush scene. The park is world famous because of the wildebeest migration that takes place here at various times of the year along the ancient path between the Mara and the Serengeti. As the wildebeest and zebra storm through the plains they are hotly pursued by predators in search of a kill. The Mara is also home to the Big 5 who roam the plains and the Masai Mara tribe who still practise their traditional ways.
