MARA

 

The Kenyan national reserve known for its exceptional population of big cats, zebras, and other wildlife. It is named in honor of the Masai people and was converted to a game reserve in 1961.

The reserve hosts approximately 3,000 elephants and 22 families of lions. Sadly, that famous wildlife population is not what it used to be. Today it loses 5 lions a day, 5 elephants an hour, and 1 rhino every 7 hours to poaching and it’s becoming an epidemic.
