‘Mara’ means ‘spotted’ in the Maa language, which is spoken by the area’s ancestral residents, the Maasai people. It refers to how the Mara is dotted with acacia trees, indentations and craters when looked at from afar. Its wide open plains provide an oasis-like sanctuary for an abundance of wildlife like elephant, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, hyena, and the Mara’s celebrated big cats: lion, leopard and cheetah. And, from about July to November every year, its savannah provides nourishment for wildebeest herds of epic proportions.
