Maasai Mara Game Reserve is widely considered as Africa’s greatest wildlife reserve. Each year the Mara plays host to the world’s greatest natural spectacle, the Great Wildebeest Migration from the Serengeti from July to October, the promise of rain and fresh life giving grass in the North attracting more than 1.3 million Wildebeest together into a single massive herd. This is a spectacular entrance in a surging column of life that stretches from horizon to horizon. At the Mara River they mass together on the banks before finally plunging forward through the raging waters, creating frenzy as they fight against swift currents and waiting crocodiles. The wildebeest bring new life to the Mara, not just through their cycle of regeneration of the grasslands, but for the predators that follow the herds. The Mara has been called the Kingdom of Lions and these regal and powerful hunters dominate these grasslands. Cheetahs are also a common sight in the Mara, as are Hyena and smaller predators such as Jackals.

Lake Bogoria is a saline water shallow located at the Northern region of Kenyan Rift valley, Lake Bogoria is the most active geologically with numerous hot springs that occasionally erupt as geysers. Without outflow or large amounts of fresh water from rivers the water has high levels of salts and alkaline minerals.

Lake Bogoria is too alkaline for fish, but ideal for growth of filamentous blue-gree algae, which is the basis for the food chain supporting large numbers of brine flies and flamingoes. Protection of the scrub and savanna habitat all around the lake supports populations of birds and mammals.
