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

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 Mara Serena Lodge FB

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
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.
