This safari trip is the time to embark on a thrilling journey to the legendary national reserve. Visitors are always eager to witness the extraordinary wildlife and want to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the African safari. For a more up close and personal encounter, travelling in a thrilling jeep among the area’s lions, elephants and other wildlife is an electrifying experience. Because the fact is that the Masai Mara National Reserve & conservancies never fail to tempt and animate the travellers. Here are some of the facts about the place that I felt on my trip to Masai Mara.

History of Masai Mara African Safari Reserve

I found the place the most beautiful with stunning landscapes. The history of the place is also interesting and people love to get to know and admire the local community. Let us have some details of the place. Located in Kenya, Masai Mara National Reserve has a rich history that dates back several decades. Let us delve into some of the historical facts of Masai Mara:

  • The Mara Reserve was originally established in 1961 as a wildlife sanctuary. At that time it covered only 520 square kilometres (200 square miles) of the current area.
  • The place was named after the local Maasai people, who are native to the region and have a deep connection to the land.
  • Over the decades, the Mara Reserve has expanded to cover a larger area, including conservancies and reserve groups.
  • Then it became popular for its diverse wildlife and also became home to some of the most iconic African species. Specially Masai Mara is renowned for the annual Great Migration when millions of wildebeests and zebras cross the Mara River in search of greenery and food. It happens during winters and travellers come to admire this migration.
  • The migration typically takes place between July and mid-September and wildebeests make dangerous crossings through crocodile-infested rivers to reach some green places. That is why from July to mid-September Masai Mara is the most crowded destination.
  • Over the years, the reserve has become a well-admired tourist place for wildlife enthusiasts and tourists from around the world. The safari place offers far-fetched opportunities to witness the wonders of the African safari.

Overall, according to me the history of Masai Mara is tangled with the upkeep efforts to look after its unique ecosystem and the cultural heritage of the local Maasai residents. Today, Masai Mara stands as evidence of the significance of preserving wildlife and the natural beauty of our planet Earth.
