Emboo River is located in the south of Kenya within Maasai Mara National Reserve, a beautiful park which is part of the same eco system as Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve is 1510 square kilometers or 580 square miles in size and is the home to many animals, including lions, leopards, rhinos, giraffes, zebra, topis, cheetahs and the yearly Great Migration.

As you see on the below map by Friends of Fauna, Maasai Mara National Reserve is surrounded by conservancies so wildlife can roam freely in an even bigger area.
