Maasai Mara:

Masai Mara and Serengeti form a contiguous ecosystem, the playground of the annual wildebeest migration, the greatest and most spectacular mammal migration on earth. Supporting over 273 herbivores per square kilometer, the Mara boasts of one of the richest assemblage of wildlife in the world. Besides herbivores, the Mara has a large representative of predators-lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards. There are no dull moments in Masai Mara.  Nature is always at play. Days are eventful and scenes keep on changing as nature wonderfully unfolds before your eyes.  It is a one in a lifetime too many. At one station it’s a lionesses hunting-the stealth stalking, the adrenalin chase, and the eventual capture or disappearance of the prey. In the far corner is a pair of ostriches walking the plains oblivious of the happenings around.  And in the same breath you notice a pair of cheetahs perched on a rock surveying the plains.  Bird watching is superb with 450 species recorded.  The Marsh lions featured in BBC Big Cats Diary series are found in the Musiara Swamp, in the Musiara sector of the park.  The best time to visit Masai Mara is of course during the annual wildebeest migration Jul-September. 

 

Day6 and 7  Masai Mara
Days spent in Masai Mara with morning, mid morning and afternoon game drives. Early morning game drives provide the best chance to witness predators hunting. In the mid morning, the scene changes as the often disturbed plain game settle to feed. Feeding times are venerable and animals take caution by maintaining a all round sentry-feeding individuals facing outwards from the centre.  In the afternoons most of the animals will take a siesta under the shade.  Of course all herds will leave several individuals standing to scout for approaching predators.  Occasionally a lone gazelle will be giving birth at high noon when it is too hot for predators to bother.  All meals and overnight at your hotel.

More About the Wildebeest

The Wildebeest migration takes place in an extremely rich contiguous and self sustaining Masai Mara Serengeti Ecosystem.  The self sustainability has earned it label of the only "true ecosystem" on earth.  The Masai (Maasai) Mara magic is attributed to its panorama.  From the vantage of rounded hills, the large expanses grassy plains teaming with herds of animals resemble a canvas painting. The overwhelming population and the rich species presentation is mesmerizing.  2014 Migration of wildebeest, national park, reserve,  masai mara, serengeti, kenya, tanzania safaris

Wildebeest herds covering the whole plain like a carpet.  From the sky, it looks like a ceaseless flow of a mighty river.

 

Between April and May

The calves matures and are readying for migration.  The migrating herds are leaving Eastern Serengeti and slowly approaching Central Serengeti (Serenora).    Between May and June the herds enter the western corridor of Serengeti called Grumetti.  By Mid June they start crossing Grumeti River along the Northern Corridor towards Maasai Mara. 

 

In July the herds cross the Mara River into Maasai (Masai) Mara, where mating takes place.  Between August And September the herds are settled in Masai Mara.  By the end of September, the succulent grass in Mara is diminishing and the wildebeest migration heads eastwards crossing into Northern Serengeti in October and part of November.  By December, the herds have are past central Serengeti headed to western plain of Ngorongoro, Masawa game sanctuary and Ndutu areas.
