Masai Mara Ecosystem has been classified among the ‘Seven Wonders of the World” due to the spectacular great migration when over 1 million wildebeests and more than hundred thousands of zebras cross the Mara River coming from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara in search of water and greener pastures
Africa holds the very last frontiers to encounter the spectacular and truly beautiful sceneries of wild nature. And the Masai Mara is most definitely one of these God blessed places.
Endless of savannah changing with golden tanned rolling plains. Riverine forests and shady acacia trees. Vast numbers of herbivores as large elephants, tall giraffes, zebras, slender gazelles and antelopes, graze the plentiful grasslands of the Mara. With the big cat predators luring in the bush always ready to hunt down their favored prey.
Great Wildebeest Migration
The Masai Mara Ecosystem plays host to one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife sceneries; the great wildebeest migration. Over 1 million of wildebeests cross the Mara River in the months of June to August to graze and mate on the lush green grasslands of the Masai Mara, before returning to the Serengeti at the Ngoro-Ngoro crater in the middle of October to November.
Mara North Conservancy
Karen Blixen Camp is situated in the beautiful Mara North Conservancy. The conservancy forms the vital northwestern zone within the Masai Mara Ecosystem and borders the Masai Mara National Game Reserve to the south.
Mara North Conservancy is key dispersal area of the great wildebeest migration and offers a very important habitat area for a unique concentration of African wild animals, birds, rich vegetation and open savannah.
