Masai Mara has many wildebeest, for a very long period of time, wildebeest have been witnessed when migrating to Tanzania. They like migrating because of the unfavorable weather, when there is famine they always go to other countries in search of good condition.
The game park was named after the Masai people, that is long time when they came from Nile basin and settled around the park, this was done so that the Masaai community could be honored. How the name Mara came about was as a result of the masaai native language, the word Mara means from a distant in Masai language.
The type of wild animals that you can find at any given time in Masai Mara, are lion, African cheater, gazelle, zebra, hyenas among others, this is because they these wild animals were the original inhabitants of the game reserve.
