It's a for and a Dawider. On the one hand the tourists bring money to finance the protection of the wild animals, on the other hand the huge numbers of jeeps disturb the natural habitat of the animals. The Masai Mara National Reserve is located in southwest Kenya and is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. In addition to the Serengeti National Park in neighboring Tanzania, it offers one of the largest natural ecosystems on the continent. In addition to the migration of wildebeest, zebras, buffalo and antelopes, the associated presence of large game such as lions and leopards makes it particularly popular. Crocodiles and hyenas are also waiting to attack the herds that pass from July to October and to make individual animals their prey.

On the move: every year herds of wildebeest like this move from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener area of ​​the Masai Mara during the dry season. They have to cross the river Mara, in which hungry crocodiles lurk. Therefore, not all animals make it to the green meadows. (October 26, 2015, Jürgen Ritterbach / Barcroft Media / Getty Images)
