The Maasai Mara National Reserve
The Maasai Mara National Park, or more affectionately known simply as “The Mara” is a National Game Reserve located in the Narok County within the south western side of Kenya. It is right on the border shared with Tanzania and joins with the mighty plains of the Serengeti National Park which is part of Tanzania.
It is named in honour of the traditional Maasai people who, to this day, are habitants of the surrounding areas of the Reserve.
It is globally famous for its plains, variety of big cats including lions, leopards and cheetah as well as the more widely known migration of Gazelles, Wildebeest and Zebra from its plains to its adjoining counterpart, the Serengeti.
The Mara Game Reserve occupies some 1,500 square kilometres of land to play a host to a wide variety of wild game.
This short album pays tribute to its landscape and attempts to showcase some of the pictures that depict its seemingly endless plains.
