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.

Day03 Masai Mara

A full day at the Maasai Mara game reserve, with morning and afternoon game drives across the plains. Maasai Mara is famed for its rich assemblage of wildlife, supporting 273 herbivores per kilometre square at a time. The big five elephants, buffalos, leopards, lions and Rhino are all represented. During annual wildebeest migration, vast herds of wildebeest cover every inch of the plain giving them a vivid semblance of canvas painting. The migration is a closely watched phenomenon. On the heels of migrating herds of zebras, wildebeests and Thomson’s gazelles are hounds of predator and scavengers; vultures providing. Not to be left human beings from the four winds of the globe converge at the crossing points to witness “a once in a lifetime experience". Dinner and Overnight Tented Camp/ Lodge (FB) B/L/D

Wildebeest Migration Masai Mara National Park/ Serengeti

Every year, in the months of July August and September, over 1.7 million wildebeests accompanied by about 800,000 gazelles and Zebras migrate from Serengeti into Maasai (Masai) Mara and back. The river crossings are particularly dangerous as large crocodile lie in wait of unsuspecting animals, killing and maiming thousands of them. Besides predation, migrating herds have to contend with flooded rivers and disease outbreaks. The wildebeest mate in Maasai Mara and Calve in Serengeti.

The annual wildebeest migration is not about wildebeests migrating per se but rather its influence on the movement patterns of the other animals including human beings. Picture a never ending milling of over 2.5 million wild animals composed of a about 1.7 million wildebeests, and 800,000 common gazelles and zebras with predators-lions, hyenas, leopards, jackals etc following closely. In this picture add thousands of vultures providing air cover the to migrating animals, the goggling human traffic; the hazardous crossing of crocodile invested Mara and Grumeti rivers and behold your magical wonder of nature.

Where are the Wildebeest? The Migration Cycle:-

The wildbeest migration follows a clockwise direction dictated by the rain patterns in the Mara/Serengeti ecosystem. The Migration has been going on for as long as our ancestors can remember and where it started is debatable.

Best Time to visit

The best times to view migration in Serengeti is December to Jul. While in Maasai Mara, the best time is August to November.

  • Between December and March, the herds congregate in Eastern Serengeti Plains where carving takes place. Births accounts for over half a million calves annually.
  • April and May still in Serengeti the calves matures and gets ready for migration.
  • June is the month of crossing Grumeti River along the Northern Corridor towards Maasai Mara.
  • In July/August, the herds cross the Mara River into Maasai (Masai) Mara, where mating takes place.
  • By November the succulent grass in Mara is finished and the migrating herds heads for Serengeti where curving will take place and the entire cycle starts all over again.
