Mara River: the vein of life in East Africa

The Mara River, originated in the Mau Escarpment in Kenya, flows for about 400 kilometers into Lake Victoria, world's largest tropical lake.

The river runs through the migration path of ungulates in the Maasai Mara and Serengeti game reserves, nurturing the wildlife in this area.
