Situated in the Maasaiterritory, this park gets its name from the Mara River. In contrast with most of the rivers in the African savannah, the river has a permanent flow of water throughout the year, attracting a great variety of wildlife. This guarantee of water, especially during the dry season, hosts great numbers of herbivores such as zebras, wildebeest, Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelles, hartebeest, topis, buffalos, elephants, etc, converting the park into the one region in the world with the highest concentration of wildlife.
