Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration Safari receives a lot of attention globally. Top wildlife enthusiasts travel miles to come and capture on film the whole thing as it happens. Nowhere in the world is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.

The Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration Safari is a dramatic story. It takes place within Kenya and Tanzania and is the greatest wildlife show on earth. Between the open plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate to greener pastures as the seasons change and the circle of life and death continues. Predators follow the Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration Safari closely, waiting for an opportunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories.

Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration SafariThis mass exodus is not only noted as a wonder of the world, but is always a great opportunity for people to witness nature at its best. You can witness the drama unfold as predators lurk in the bushes and prey scamper for safety in what has since been dubbed ‘survival for the fittest’. The lion perfectly chooses its arena – the grassy Mara plains. In the plains, the lion is shrouded in thick grass cover and gets a strategic hiding spot to attack unsuspecting wildebeest and zebras. During the peak of the Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration Safari, vultures circle the air and hyenas laugh in the shadows; an indication of the innumerable wildebeest and zebra that have fallen under the claw of the mighty African lion.

The Nile crocodile however takes the medal as the deadliest predator in the Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration Safari. It comes in at the climax of the Mara migration – the crossing of the Mara River! This avid killer shapes the events that take place during the crossing of the Mara River. From the splashing waters and floating wildebeest bodies, it is the match-maker.

This wondrous of a show takes place in the massive savannah plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania and the vast green fields of the Maasai Mara in Kenya. It is important to notice that the two Parks border each other making it the perfect stage for the show. This ecosystem is divided into three parts, the southern grass plains of Serengeti that have endless, wide-open plains, the western Serengeti corridor that has the Grumeti river and the northern Serengeti, which merges with the Mara is largely rolling hills and open woodlands.

Visiting Maasai Mara during Migration Season is the ultimate way of experiencing the last multi-species migration on the planet. From mid-June to December more than a million wildebeest, zebras and antelopes scatter the vast plains of the Mara, making this natural wonder even more wondrous. All around the world, one of the greatest phenomena that happen in Africa is always on the lips of every wildlife enthusiast and tourist. Every year, towards the East of the continent, visitors, both local and international flood the area just to experience one of the most wondrous and beautifully staged spectacle directed by nature. This spectacle is popularly known as The Great Migration.

When and why does the Masai Mara Great Wildebeest Migration Safari happen?

Wildebeests, Gazelles and Zebras move through the Serengeti to the Mara and back in a year, and the cycle repeats itself. What motivates their migration is the search for food. They start of at the south, move to the western side then to the north and back to the south again. As each place dries up, they move to the next. According to observations of all the previous years, the pattern has been found to be as follows:

Late December to March: The herds are beginning to move back to the South of Serengeti from the north. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the south is now populated by short nutritious grasses. This provides the favorable environment for the herds to have their calves. Mid-February is actually considered a calving season, an estimated 400,000 calves are born during this period. It is also an interesting period for those who love game, as the calving season attracts a good number of lions, cheetahs and hyenas to the herds.

Late March to Early May: The herds begin migrating towards the north as the rich nutritious grass is now not sufficient to sustain the endless herds. They split and some move towards the central of Serengeti but the most migrate towards the western corridor. At the beginning of June, the herds are concentrated around Grumeti River in the West. They reside here for the three months as they wait to proceed north.

July-October: By late June, things are beginning to dry up. The herds begin moving to their next destination point, the North/The Mara game reserve. Because the herds are split, the migration can be spread over huge distances. The zebras might be the first to arrive in the Mara followed by the Wildebeests later on. The Mara River is towards the northern side and the most spectacular river crossing waits during this period. Game watching is fantastic during this time with almost guaranteed daily river crossing, with hungry crocodiles present in the rivers.

November/December:  The herds begin to move towards the southern part of Serengeti with its short green grass, and to begin another cycle again.
