The park is teeming with wildlife and the mostly permanent water network from the Mara-Talek rivers provides the animals with a year round supply of water. The most spectacular feature is the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle from the plains of Serengeti that cross the Tanzanian border and rivers to reach the Mara’s grasslands from late June, tracked by predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and circled by vultures as the journey unfolds, the migration provides a game viewing experience that is not equaled anywhere else in Africa. Though the seasonal migration, game viewing is excellent year round. Game includes :- elephant, Black Rhino, buffalo, wildebeest, Burchell’s zebra, hartebeest, various antelope and gazelle, lion, leopard, giraffe, elephant cheetah, hippo, crocodile and much more.
