Brief information about Masai Mara national reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve is located in Kenya’s Narok area. The reserve, which covers approximately 1,510 square kilometers situated along the Great Rift Valley. The Masai Mara is part of the greater Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania, which covers 25,000 square kilometers. The Mara and Talek Rivers flow through the Masai Mara Reserve’s rolling grasslands, though numerous seasonal rivers emerge during the wet season but dry out as soon as the rains end. The Masai Mara National Reserve contains four distinct terrain types. The Mara triangle, which is bordered by the Mara River and has verdant grassland and acacia forests that support a wide variety of wildlife species, including migrating wildebeests, the Ngama hills to the east, which have sandy soil and leafy bushes and are home to the majority of the black rhinos, and the central plains, which cover the majority of the greater Mara Eco-system, are among them.
