Migration season in masai Mara

Migration of wildebeest in Masai Mara is a spectacular sight and the highlight of any safari to kenya. Last year my family and I were lucky to watch migration of  wildebeest crossing the Mara river form the Serengeti National Park. It  was a sight to be hold and this was through courtesy of our very own driver for Kenya safaris called Fredrick.

He is our foremost senior driver with over 20 years experience with driving guests throughout Africa adventure safaris and is recognized authority on migration safaris in Kenya and Tanzania. All in all we had five nights in Masai mara and our aim was to see wildebeest, zebras, antelopes cross the river and I can report that we have already booked for another eight night stay on Special Kenya safaris that will end up spending 3 nights in Samburu and Masai Mara with its highlight being to exprience the nights under  Tents in the adventure safaris of africa.  We are open to suggestions and willing join others in our next safari this summer.

 KENYA OVERVIEW

A country in East Africa which has been described as ‘the cradle of humanity’ because some of the earliest evidence of human ancestors was found here. It could also be argued that “safari” was born in Kenya, with the primal drama of lion, leopard, wild dogs,hyena and cheetah hungrily following a sea of wildebeest so immense that at times it seems the whole earth itself is moving.African Safari and Wildlife Safaris

Africa’s single most famous safari draw, the Annual Great Migration occurs every July and October as animals travel between Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Each year, nearly 2 million animals move through Tanzania and Kenya driven by seasonal rain and drought in what is known as the Great Migration. One million wildebeest and 200,000 zebras make up the largest populations of the migrating herds, followed by gazelles. Though the timing of the annual migration varies from year to year and cannot be predicted with any certainty. 

The park takes its name from famous nomadic Maasai people, who wander as freely across the Kenya-Tanzania border as their cattle. But there is more to Kenya than safari and wildebeest migration, though: from coral reefs and white sand beaches to tea plantations, Equatorial Tropical rain forest, cultural tours, sports tours, plus a tourism infrastructure that can get you to all of them so easily and so comfortably, Welcome to Magical Kenya!
