Masai Mara is contiguous with the Serengeti in Tanzania and named in honour of the Maasai people. It is probably one of the most famous and important conservation areas in Africa, world-renowned for its population of Lion, Cheetah, Leopard and Elephant. The Mara also hosts the great migration from August through October each year. All members of the Big five are found here, as well as Black Rhinos which are critical endangered. It is a remarkable area to visit.
