Across the vast plains of Mara, visitors can also witness Lions, Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, and Rhino along with other varied species of hoofed animals in their habitat. A visit to Maasai Mara National Reserve is nothing short of amazing! Make sure you have your travel book planned out that includes Maasai Mara!
