The Maasai Mara as originally called by the masai people who leave with in and out side of the wildlife rserve grazing their live stock mainly goats, sheep and cattle have leaved around the rift valley area and will guide visitors through their homesteads and have learnt how to drive and guide visitors spotting the wildlife.

The Maasai mara was first established in 1962 as a sanctuary and only stood on 520 sq km of land which was later extended in 1961 covering 1821sqkm. After some community wrangles, Narok council took over control of the reserve and part of the land was given back to some community. Today the Mara Wildlife Reserve covers an area of 1,510 sqkm
