Porini Lion Camp Game Viewing and Activities
The Masai Mara boasts astonishing amount of game within its borders. Gazelle, wildebeest and zebra graze in large numbers and where prey is found so are predators. The famous black-maned Mara lions are possibly the stars of the Mara show. In earlier times the Masai were renowned lion killers and it is said that if lions scent approaching Masai on the breeze they move swiftly in the opposite direction. The reserve also teems with cheetah, elephant, kongoni, topi, Thompson's gazelle, waterbuck, hyena, and primates. Every year the Masai Mara hosts the world's greatest natural spectacle: the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti. 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
