wildebeest Migration Masai Mara
Masai Mara Game Reserve
Masai Mara is justly one of the best known wildlife areas in Kenya. Here the herds of elephants, browse among rich, tree-studded grasslands. Thomson's gazelles, zebra, eland and many more species of savannah game offer a rich choice for the predatory lions, leopards and cheetahs which hunt in the reserve and the adjoining areas.
But even this richness of fauna, and untouched life of Africa continuing as it has for thousands of years, is secondary to the Mara's annual migration of wildebeest.
The spectacle of more than a million of these creatures moving as a great mass across the savannah, is one of the most breathtaking sights in nature. The actual migration does not last very long and its start is impossible to predict accurately. Nevertheless visitors to the Masai Mara in August through September are certain to see the great herds of wildebeest and zebra.
However year round Masai Mara is rich in resident wildlife, and the combination of gentle climate with scenic splendor and unbelievable wildlife makes it Kenya's most popular game reserves.
