Ken 02: 10 Nights/11 Days Migration Safari Kenya

amboseli

The annual wildebeest migration safari at Masai Mara in Kenya is a natural cycle that takes place between July and October. The migration safari in Kenya is a dramatic story and it starts in Serengeti in Tanzania, climaxing at Masai Mara in Kenya during the crossing at the crocodile-infested Mara River. Thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as the seasons change and the circle of life and death continues. Predators follow the wildebeest migration closely, waiting for an opportunity to strike.

The calving season for wildebeests takes place in the Serengeti between January and mid-March before the wildebeest migration begins heading towards the western Serengeti in June. The best time to see the migration safari in Masai Mara is usually between July and October when the wildebeest congregate and prepare to cross the famous Mara River. Between December and January the wildebeests gradually begin their migration safari back towards the Serengeti in Tanzania.
