Brief Background on Masai Mara National Reserve.

The Masai Mara National Reserve is part of the larger Mara ecosystem, which encompasses the Mara Triangle and other Maasai conservancies such as Kerinkani, Kimintet, Koiyaki, Lemek, Maji Moto, Mara North, Naikara, Ol Chorro Oirowua, Ol Derkesi, Olkinyei, Oloirien, and Siana. The reserve is drained by three large rivers: the Talek River, the Sand River, and the more famous Mara River.

The reserve is mostly made up of open grasslands, seasonal rivers, and acacia trees. There are two different rainy seasons in the Maasai Mara Reserve. There are lengthy rains from April to May and brief rains from November to December.

The administration of Narok County (known as Narok County Council) manages the most frequented area of the Maasai Mara to the east, while the Mara Conservancy manages the Mara Triangle to the west.

The reserve’s outskirts, where the majority of the local Masai villages reside, are overseen by elected Masai chiefs. Most of the migratory wildebeest reach the Maasai Mara National Reserve through the Mara Triangle.

In summary; the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is one of Africa’s most popular and well-known animal conservation places. It is well-known for being home to the big five mammals: elephants, leopards, rhinos, lions, and buffalo. The Masai Mara is the only wildlife reserve/national park in Kenya that has a native black rhino population.
