Its rolling grasslands and acacia savannah have time and again been captured on film with the movie “Out of Africa” being the most famous.

Even when the migration is quiet, the Mara offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa; great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of elands, buffaloes, impalas and Grant’s gazelles.
