Maasai Mara National Reserve is a large game reserve in Narok County in Kenya, adjoining the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It is named in honor of the Maasai people who ancestrally are the inhabitants of the area and their description of the area when looked at from afar: "Mara," which is Maa (Maasai language) for "spotted," a description for the gathering of trees, scrub, savanna, and cloud shadows that mark the area.

It was originally established in 1961 as a wildlife sanctuary and covered only 520 square kilometers (200 sq mi) of the current area, including the Mara Triangle. The area was extended to the east in 1961 to cover 1,821 km2 (703 sq mi) and converted to a game reserve. The Narok County Council (NCC) took over management of the reserve at this time. It is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, and the yearly migration of zebra, Thomson’s gazelles, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the great migration.
