“I, Mara River- stand with me” is the theme of 2019 Mara Day celebrations.
Tanzania will host the 8th Mara Day celebrations at Sokoine grounds in Mugumu town in Serengeti district of Mara region from September 12 to15.
Held on September 15th each year, Mara Day incorporates a different theme to campaign for sustainable conservation of the Mara River Basin.

 Mara Day is  hosted on a rotational basis by Tanzania and Kenya.
 The transboundray river starts in the Mau forests on the Kenyan side, and then flows through the Masai Mara Game Reserves and Serengeti National Park before emptying into Lake Victoria in Tanzania.
 Apart from supporting wildlife conservation, Mara River is also a source of livelihood to around 1.1 million Tanzanians and Kenyans.
  The 10th Sectorial Council of Ministers for Lake Victoria Basin held in the Rwandan capital Kigali in May 2012 declared every September 15 the “Mara Day.
 Commemoration of the day coincides with the great migration of wildebeest from world famous Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.
