Just a muddy river with crocks and hippos. Dive to Mara river is great though through the grasslands where you get to see lots of wild life and some really tough roads which need a 4WD to negotiate.

We usually visit this place with my tour and travel company (Continental-tours & travel co. ltd).Masai Mara is home to an excellent year-round concentration of game and is renowned for its annual visit by the two million wildebeest Zebra and antelopes that make up the Great Wildebeest Migration Migration which happens between the months of July and October.Masai Mara National Reserve shares a border with Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and is essentially a continuation of this park, forming the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem.Apart from wildbeest there other animals like elephant, black rhino, buffalo, plains zebra, hartebeest and big cats. The rivers are home to hippo and crocodiles. 452 species, 53 of which are raptors .The place has good lodges like Sentim lodge,Kibo safari camp although outside the park and etc.Hence it is my expectation once tourist visit kenya, should also find time to visit Maasai Mara too.

Our tour operator Ruth of Kenya Budget holiday tours was the best very informative.
