Almost not the largest protected area, the park must be the one of the best for game viewing. The area is an extension of the famous Serengeti plains (Serengeti in Maasai means extended plains) just over the border in Tanzania. Animals dont recognise international boundaries so every year, in July and August, over a million wildebeest and thousand of Zebra migrated from the depleted grasslands of Tanzania to take advantange of the fresh grazing after the long rains in Kenya.

The lush grasslands interspersed with silver and russet leaved croton thickets, hillocks and forested river banks provides a good variety of habitats for wildlife. There is a small resident population of roan antelop,many bufallo as well as herds of Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, topi and impala. Predators include large prides of lions, a fair number of cheetah and leopards, spotted hyaenas and the silver-or black-backed jackal, African wild dog.

There are over 450 recorded species of birds in this reserve, including the large orange-buff pel’s fishing owl andkori bustards.The best time of year to visit the reserve is from July to October when the migration is at its peak and as many as two million wildebeest and 500, 000 zebra are grazing, fighting, courting and mating.
