Maasai Mara is a large game reserve in Narok County, Kenya. It is home to the big five and is also famous for the annual migration of the wildebeest. It covers an area of about 531m2 in the southern part of Kenya. This park is named in honor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area).
