Maasai Mara is one of Kenya’s popular tourist attractions, due to the annual wildebeest migration. The wildebeest migration from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara is believed to be the greatest and most spectacular migration in the world.
In the month of June and July, the wildebeest migrate from Serengeti to Maasai Mara National Reserve and moves further to the private conservancy areas such as the Mara North Conservancy to graze the endless and plentiful lush green plains. This is one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the earth and is sometimes referred to as the ‘the Eighth Wonder of the World’. Approximately 1.5 million wildebeest migrate throughout the Serengeti and Maasai Mara ecosystems. More than 400,000 zebra and 200,000 gazelles accompany the wildebeest along the way, making a total of at least 2 million migrating animals.
