Mara Porini Camp Game Viewing and Activities
The Masai Mara is Kenya's premier game reserve. It has some of the highest concentrations of animals in Africa. It is most famous for the migration of wildebeest and zebra. From July to October, the promise of rain and fresh grass on in the Mara plains attracts more than 1.3 million wildebeest together in a single massive herd. At the Mara River they mass together on the banks before plunging forward through the raging waters, fighting against the currents and waiting crocodiles. You are almost guaranteed to see the big 5 in the Mara. Guests at Mara Porini can expect to see lions throughout the park as well as leopards, cheetah, hyenas, giraffe, impala, wildebeest, topi, baboons, warthogs, buffalo, zebra, elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Because the reserve has no fences you can actually see as much wildlife within its boundaries as outside in the areas inhabited by the Masai tribes. Some of these areas are also not so crowded.
