Mara Intrepids Game Viewing and Activities
The Masai Mara is one of the most beautiful and popular reserves in Africa. It is part of the traditional Masai lands, and its edges are dotted with manyattas (Masai shepherd's villages). It is an integral part of the Serengeti ecosystem, divided in two by the vagaries of human geography. The wildlife is abundant throughout the year. You will see hundreds of thousands of gnu and zebra in the reserve. Lion, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino, giraffe, various antelopes, wildebeest, zebra and warthogs can often be seen on game drives in the area. The birdlife is also excellent around the camp and surrounding environs. Because the Masai Mara does not have fences, you will see just as much wildlife outside its boundaries as within. Some of these areas are also not so crowded.
