This is a compact program for those who want to experience the best of what Wild East Africa has to offer: the Masai Mara Reserve – the stage for the Greatest show on the earth – the Great Migration.
The Great Migration i.e. the Wildebeest migration from the Serengeti (Tanzania) to Masai Mara (Kenya) in July to October. During this period, over one and a half million wildebeest accompanied by half again as many zebras and gazelles, migrate from the short-grass plains of the Serengeti to fresh pasture in the grasslands of the Mara; thus creating one of nature’s grandest spectacles. Moving in groups of up to 20,000 at a time they thunder across the plateau hesitating only briefly to cross the Mara River, where many fall prey to the waiting crocodiles. Towards the end of October they begin crossing back into the Serengeti.
