The wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara is so unique that it was named one of the “8 wonders of the World” in 2007. The fact that it is the world’s largest overland migration is also celebrated.
Contrary to common opinion, the Masai Mara wildebeest migration is an unending, cyclical process rather than a single crossing.
Both the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania are constantly traversed by the animals in a circular pattern. The migratory herd travels more than 3000 kilometres in total.
The Mara River crossing is only one leg of the flock’s cyclical migration, which takes place between mid-June and late July. The herd stays in the Masai Mara game reserve following the passage until early November.
After continuing their round migration in the Serengeti, they cross the Mara River again next year.
Over 1.5 million wildebeests, 0.2 million zebras, and various antelope species make up the migrating herd. Their instincts drive them to cross the Mara River from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park into Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.
It is impossible to describe the drama that occurs during the Masai Mara migration, particularly the river crossing. You must reserve this 4-day safari tour to Kenya to see the migration.
