Masai Mara National Reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve is located in Kenya, Narok District, having the County Council of Narok as a custodian. It is about 270 kilometers from Nairobi, and takes about 4 to 5 hours by road. There are also scheduled flights, twice daily from Wilson Airport Nairobi, which take about 40 - 45 minutes. It is named after the native tribe - The Maasai People and the Mara River, which runs across the Reserve. The Mara Triangle consists of the western third of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Its stretches from the edge of the Siria (Oloololo) Escarpment south to the Tanzanian border and east to the Mara river.

It is famously known as the SEVENTH WONDER OF THE WORLD for its wildebeest migration to and from the Serengeti park southwards to Tanzania. This makes it the best area to see the Wildbeest Migration as the animals migrate across the crocodile infested Mara river in there thousands, and still remains the favorite tourist attraction for the Masai Mara and Kenya alike.

The Mara Reserve currently has 5 entry gates with major and rife plans to construct a sixth gate soon. The Main gate, is the SEKENANI gate, which is most preffeed for entrants to the park because it is on the main road from Narok town. The others are TALEK gate, OLOOLAIMUTIA gate. All the gates are manned by Council wardens and are the best places to get more information for first time tourists and those who may have lost their ways or bearings. The friendly wardesn will also advice on which points to go for preferred game sites. Please remember to always keep to the designated roads while driving around in the park, and be watchful when getting out of your vehicle.

The Mara Triangle was the original extent of the reserve until a further 1,000 square kilometers were added by the County Council of Narok in 1992 to incorporate two former group ranches, Sekenani and Musiara which trebled the reserves size.
