Review of Mara Triangle

Attraction details
Owner description: The Mara is a beautiful but sensitive environment that can survive only if properly respected. Well-watered by the Mara River, enjoying abundant vegetation, wildlife and rainfall, its ecology would appear, at first sight, to be relatively resilient. It also appears to have withstood the erosive effects of huge numbers of visiting tourists extraordinarily well. There are signs, however, that the delicate balance between tourist numbers and wildlife populations cannot be properly maintained for much longer as evidenced by the reduction in the protective vegetation cover and the emergence of a series of dust bowls. Meanwhile, the Reserve is host to 95 species of mammals, amphibians and other reptiles and 485 species of birds. During the dry season (July to October) it also hosts a major concentration of migratory herbivores including about 250,000 zebra and 1.3 million wildebeest. Amongst the list of easy-to-view species are: gazelle, elephant, topi, buffalo, lion (Kenya's largest population), black rhino, hippo, hyena, giraffe, leopard and mongoose.

Migration has started. The plains are full of zebra. Hippos on the Mara. Perfect season to go since it's not too hot and the rain is gone. Def. worth the trip out there for the blue skies and red oat grass even if it didn't hold such amazing animals.

I knew nothing about the Mara Triangle befor going. This area has the river and the vast plains of the Mara w/ the escarpment to the west. Such a truly beautiful and special place. We could not get over the huge herds of animals, everything from buffalo, elephants, antelope/tope/impala/zebra, etc. We weren't there for the migration but can only imagine how crazy awesome it would be as you can see for mile and mile.
