The reserve is Kenyas most-visited protected area. This world famous reserve is known for its high density of herbivores and predators, and the annual migration of wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus). It has over 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles, and over 400 bird species.

 It is named in honor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from afar: "Mara," which is Maa (Maasai language) for "spotted," an apt description for the circles of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area.

It is globally famous for its exceptional population of Masai Lions, African Leopards and Tanzanian Cheetahs, and the annual migration of Zebra, Thomson's gagelle, and Wildebeest the Serengeti  every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration.
