On Maasai Mara plains you get to see herds of wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, giraffes and gazelles as well as a large and diverse number of different birds. Actually, there are registered more than 450 different bird species in the Maasai Mara, of which 53 species are birds of prey, which all thrive. The Maasai Mara is also home of the largest concentration of lions in Kenya, just as leopards and cheetahs are very well represented.
