The resident Hippo of Mara River Camp have
long ruled out any possibility of a swimming
pool, while roaming herds of bull Elephant
have also put an end to any exotic gardens.
However the indigenous shrubs are plentiful
and the surrounding trees house many
beautiful birds. Only a few kilometres
downstream the annual migration of the
Wildebeest and attendant Zebra and antelope
may be in full flow, as they run the
gauntlet of the dangers of the Mara River.

wildlife researchers, film crews,
photographers and conservationists. Resident
guides are always available for informative
nature and bird walks. Being of Maasai
origin they delight guests with fascinating
insight to Maasai culture.
