Maasai Mara is a wildlife reserve located in south west of Kenya. It is Africa’s panoramic wildlife national reserve offering a wide range of attraction. Every year, about two million wildebeest and 20,000 plains game travel from Tanzania’s Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara in search of abundant grazing pastures and life-giving water.
It ranks as one of the best wildlife reserves in Africa. The wildebeest migration is a phenomenon that everyone wishes to experience. The migration involves movement of over a million wildebeests from Serengeti in Tanzania into Maasai Mara in Kenya in search of greener pastures. The period between July and August is a great time to tour Maasai Mara and experience the migration.
