Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark - considering the spectacular wildlife of the Masai Mara, biblical comparisons are obvious. In addition, the landscape is like a park, almost boundless, and has its own magic at any time of day, reminding us again and again of Hollywood movie classic “Out of Africa”.
The Masai Mara (alternative notations: Masaai Mara or Massai Mara) is Kenya’s most famous nature reserve and it was made a reserve in 1961. In contrast to a national park, the Masai living in the Masai Mara are allowed to let their cattle graze in certain parts of the park. The area offers a unique animal wealth - both in terms of the variety of species and in absolute numbers.
