The Maasai have been living in harmony with nature and wildlife for centuries and it is mostly due to their beliefs and traditions that the area is still rich in wildlife. Whilst staying in the Maasai Mara, it’s possible to visit an authentic manyatta or village for insights into the culture and lifestyle of the Maasai. During the seasonal migrations, the Mara is home to up to half a million wildebeest and an equally impressive number of zebra who move into the area from neighbouring Tanzania. These large numbers of animals give rise to a proportionate number of predators, especially the big cats. Lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena roam the vast grassy plains on the lookout for their next meal. It may be an unsuspecting impala or gazelle or even something small like a warthog or African hare. Whatever the players, the spectacle of nature unfolding is always awesome. Here it’s also possible to observe; elephant, giraffe, baboon, African buffalo, eland, ostrich, bat-eared fox, jackal and sometimes the rare rhino. The rivers abound with hippos and crocodiles.
