recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas the so called greedy and smelly dirty animal, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place, not forgetting the famous white Rhino and black rhino found in this park. The most spectacular scene is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their backs are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures which are anxious for a catch of their prey. This is an opportunity for the carnivore they use to maximise for a heavy meal of a season because once a catch is made its big and usually not one catch. Dinner and overnight at Mara Sarova Camp
