KENYA, Masai Mara: In a photograph taken by Make It Kenya 04 October 2015, a young male leopard stalks through long grass in the golden morning light just after sunrise in the Mara Triangle, part of Kenya's wider Masai Mara ecosystem. Bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve to the north-west, the Mara Triangle is managed by the not-for-profit organisation The Mara Conservancy on behalf of Trans-Mara County Council. Different to the reserve with strict controls on the number of camps, vehicles and visitors, the Mara Triangle offers exceptional game viewing from rhino, elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra and many more ungulates and an abundance of birdlife. During the months of July through to October, one of nature's greatest events takes place in the wider Masai Mara ecosystem when hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and other ungulates migrate northwards from Tanzania's Serengeti in search of fresh pasture and grazing, before turning and heading south again in a journey that covers thousands of kilometres and is known as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, making it a major draw for wildlife enthusiasts and tourists from around the globe.
