Floriculture forms the main industry around the lake.
the camping tour proceeds to  Masai Mara is Kenya's finest and most outstanding wildlife sanctuary where gentle rolling Savanna grasslands ensures animals are never out of sight. The climate is gentle, rarely too hot and well spread rainfall year round. The sensation of the great Wildebeests migration between July and October is unparalleled. The wildlife is far from being confined within the Reserve boundaries and an even larger area extends beyond the game Reserve. Centuries of close association with the wildlife has resulted in an almost symbiotic relationship where wildlife and Maasai people live in peace with one another.
The first sight of Masai Mara is breathtaking. There is nowhere else on earth to compare with this wildlife marvel. The combination of a gentle climate, scenic splendor and untold numbers of wildlife makes the Masai Mara National Reserve Kenya's most popular inland destination.
