The great wildebeest migration

Experiencing the great wildebeest migration is one of the unmissable wildlife experiences in Kenya & Tanzania, and this involves over a million wildebeests accompanied by hundreds of thousands of gazelles, zebras and elands crossing between the borders of Serengeti National Park (Tanzania) and Masai Mara National Reserve (Kenya). This migration is annual, whereby these animals move to the Northern grazing grounds that are nourished by rains and fresh pastures. The migration is usually marked by obstacles that include crossing crocodile-infested Mara River, being savaged by lions, leopards or cheetahs and many others.

Spot phenomenal bird species

There are a number of phenomenal birding spots in Kenya and Tanzania that provide unmatched birding experiences and they include Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Ruhondo Island, Serengeti and Ruaha National Parks in Tanzania as well as Lake Nakuru National Park, Lakes Bogoria, Naivasha, Baringo and Elementaita.

Perfect time for enjoying unmatched wildlife experiences in Kenya & Tanzania

The most ideal time to enjoy unmatched wildlife experiences in Kenya & Tanzania is from June to September and December to February. These months are remarkable for game drives within Masai Mara National Reserve, Serengeti National Park, Amboseli or Lake Manyara National Parks as lots of wildlife species concentrate around watering points in addition to being easier/effortless to sight them in the low, sparse and thinned-out vegetation.

If you wish to enjoy the climax of wildebeest migration in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, these months are the best to make your safari.
