Things you should know about the famous Maasai Mara in Kenya:
Did you know that about 850-900 lions live within the Maasai Mara national reserve and the surrounding conservancies?
Did you know that ‘Mara’ means ‘spotted’ in the Maasai language?
Maasai Mara was named in honor of the Maasai people, the ancestral inhabitants of the area.
Did you know that Maasai Mara is one of the few national reserves in Africa that is lucky to habit all the ‘Big 5 (African elephants, Lions, Cape buffalo, Rhinoceros and Leopards)’?
Did you know that the Maasai jump proves the strength and maturity of the Maasai people?
(The higher the jump is, the stronger the person is)
Did you know that Maasai men practice POLYANDRY?
Meaning that a woman marries both her husband and all his circumcision group.
( I bet you didn’t know that!)
Here are some of the few pictures that I took while I was in the beautiful Mara!
