Maasai Mara Game Reserve: The rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara offer ideal game viewing and photographic opportunities and the grassy plains are broken by rocky outcrops which are favorite midday resting places for lions. This is where millions of Wildebeest cross the Mara River from the Serengeti National park of Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve of Kenya – an annual spectacular event, which brings along thousands of plains game and predators to the Mara, making the park a beehive of ‘wildlife activities’. Some of the other animals that could be found here include Elephant, black Rhino, Buffalo, Leopard, Cheetah, Wildebeests, Zebras and Gazelles. Hippos and Crocodiles abound in the muddy brown waters of the rivers, which traverse this reserve.
