In the south-western corner of Kenya, close to the Tanzanian border, is the Masai Mara area. It is dominated by the Masai Mara National Reserve, the most popular game park in Kenya.
The open grasslands are home to an incredibly rich and varied wildlife and the awesome, annual migration of millions of wildebeest and antelope is the highlight of many a visit to Africa.
The area also includes Narok, a small town with souvenir shops, a post office and some banks. There is a Maasai village nearby where you may walk around to take photographs, talk to the locals and buy some authentic beadwork.
