8 Days Kenya Mara Migration Photo Tour, Maasai Mara National Reserve as it is popularly known is Africa’s greatest wildlife sanctuary and the world’s most famous safari destination. Wildebeest Migration, is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World” and also known as The World Cup of Wildlife. Claudious Tours and Safaris is proud to present you with an unforgettable 7-day wildlife photo safari experience-of-a-lifetime to one of the most game rich safari destinations in Africa, Kenya’s celebrated Masai Mara National Reserve. The annual Wildebeest migration is one of the most incredible wildlife spectacles on the planet, as an estimated 1.5 million Wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of Plains Zebra and Thomson’s Gazelle follow the rains in search of the better quality grazing. When the vast herds arrive in the Masai Mara they must ford the Mara River, creating a spectacle without parallel in the natural world!
Over the course of the safari, guests will also encounter the famous big cats of the Maasai Mara that include lions, cheetahs and the elusive leopards. Big cat activity during this period is at an all-time high. The months prior to the herds making their way to the Mara, due to the limited number of prey and long grass, the big cats are usually famished and often turn to scavenging. They take advantage of the arriving herds to replenish their fat and energy reserves. Other small and extremely rare cats can also be encountered during the safari, such as serval cats, caracal cats and the African wild cat. This is also a great time to photograph the Big-5 (Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Rhino and Buffalo).
