It is name dinhonor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from a far:"Mara"means"spotted" in the local Maasai language of Maa, due to the many trees which dot the landscape. It is world-renowned for it sexceptional populations of lions,leopards,cheetahs and elephant,and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra,Thomson's gazelle and other antelope,toand from the Serengeti every year known as the Great Migration.The Masai Mara“Big Five” are the Lion,Elephant,Buffalo,Leopard and Rhino.
Between Mid June and Early September(however the dry seasons may change due to global warming)The three groups of migrant grazers take advantage of different heights of grass,which means they stick to their own kind with only a small over lapin their distributions.The grasses of the plains have the highest protein content in the whole of the Serengeti,as well as being high incalcium.It is unclear how the wilde beest know which way to go,but it is generally believed that their journey is dictated primarily by their response to the weather;they follow the rains and the growth of new grass.While there is no scientific proof of it,some experts believe that the animals react to lightning and thunder storms in the distance.It has even been suggested that wil de beest can locate rain more than 50km away.
