Maasai Mara National Reserve is among the largest game reserves in Kenya. The Maasai Mara is connected to the Serengeti National Park forming a huge ecosystem traversing two East African countries. The  Masai  Mara  Game Reserve is Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve, one of the world’s top tourist attractions and vital to Kenya’s economy. The  Masai  Mara  Game Reserve in Kenya  is  named  after  the  Masai  people,  the  traditional  nomadic inhabitants south Rift  Kenya.  The  Mara  River   runs  through  this ecosystem.  The  Masai  Mara  covers  an  thousands of  square  kilometres in the Great Rift Valley and  is  famous for its exceptional population of wild game, its annual migration of wildebeest and because it offers a haven for many endangered species, including the African elephant and the black rhino. The Masai Mara is Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve and  one  of  the  world’s  most  important  tourist  attractions.  The  Masai  Mara  was  established  as  a  world  heritage  site  in  1989  in  a  bid  to  protect  the  existing Mara habitat

It is globally famous for its lions, leopards and cheetahs, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration. The Greater Mara Ecosystem, includes  Ranches like Koiyaki, Ol Chorro Oirowua, Lemek, Olkinyei, Maji Moto, Siana, Naikara, Kerinkani, Oloirien, Kimintet,  and Ol Derkesi.

Kenya’s  Maasai  Mara  Game Reserve was named  the  7th Wonder of the World. This is due to its incredible annual migration of over a million Wildebeest from the Serengeti plains to the  Maasai Mara has been described as being one of the most awe-inspiring sights on earth. The sheer spectacle  of  this  event  draws  visitors  keen  to  witness  one  of  the planet’s largest and most fascinating natural cycles to Kenya each year, and is regarded  as  the  planet’s  greatest  natural  spectacle and  it  is  this  remarkable event that saw the Mara ranked as one of the new Seven Wonders. The majority of the herds of over 1.3 million wildebeest spend much of the year grazing throughout the plains of the Serengeti. The herds calve in January to March, the young born ready to make their first, epic journey. In June, as the dry season withers the grasslands and a distant scent of moisture brings the promise of rain in the north, they begin to gather, massing together to form a single vast herd. They migrate   northwards,  a  pulsing,  surging  column  of life.  The  sound  of  the  approaching  herd  is  a  deep, primal rumbling of thundering hooves and low grunts. By July the herds begin crossing from Tanzania to Kenya, bringing the plains to life as predators are drawn to this perfect opportunity for easy hunting. At the edge of the Maasai Mara, the herds face their greatest obstacle, a series of rivers that must be crossed. At the Mara River, the herds gather at the banks, piling together in front of the broad fast flowing waters. As the pressure built the herds  finally  surge  into  the  river,  many  animals  hurling  themselves  off  high banks.
