Wildebeest Migration safari experience – Wildebeest Migration in Kenya’s Masai Mara is the world’s Second largest terrestrial Mammal migration on earth, a natural phenomenal you shouldn’t miss while on safaris in Kenya. Watching large herds of these mammals will make your safari a memorable one especially if timed well with Mara river crossing.
The long journey of these mammals gazers attracts top predator animals that usually come along to prey on the moving mammals. Wildlife sightseeing here is really rewarding as you will get opportunities to spot top game while in Kenya.
The Masai Mara Reserve also habituates some of the “Big Five African Animals”,(Lion, Leopard, Elephant Rhino and Buffalo). Masai Mara is Kenya’s most famous safari destination and perhaps the most visited in the country.
Wildebeest Migration in Kenya’s Masai Mara is an annual event where mammal grazers such as wildebeest and their entourage embark on a long round trek – advancing northwards into Kenya’s Masai Mara as a result of drier land in Tanzania. The phenomenal is one of the ten natural wonders in the world and a must sight in Masai Mara National Reserve. Acacia safaris Limited offers well planned safari packages to Masai Mara that guarantee unique safari experiences.
The great Migration in Kenya’s Masai Mara is an all year round event, where over 1.5 million wildebeest upon hundreds of thousands of zebra and gazelles start their long legendary journey of over 1,800 miles, embarked on cyclic movement in a large round trek from the drier lands in Tanzania, heading towards the north to the Kenya’s Masai Mara in search for lush grass to graze.
The Migration is one of nature’s greatest paradoxes: timing is absolutely vital, but there is no way to predict the timing of the animals’ movements. We know that the wildebeest (and a smattering of zebra and antelope) will cross the Mara River – but nobody knows exactly when.
We also know that rain will trigger the wildebeest to move onto fresh grazing – but nobody knows exactly when the rain will fall. Our travel experts are flexible enough to tailor make your safari basing on your preferences however with great consideration of your experience while in Masai Mara National Reserve. With our past experiences, we can design you a safari package that will guarantee sighting of the Great Wildebeest Migration and perhaps the famous Mara River Crossing.
The Mara Triangle is an amazing place, especially for the children. In the Mara triangle, children will have a great opportunity to see all the big five during the game drive. The game drive rangers also educated travelers on the difference of the animal species in the various parks as well as how to identify the female animals from the male ones.
While on your safari at the Mara Triangle it is also best advisable to make sure you get a Maasai safari guide that respects the rules and doesn’t drive off the designated roads for your cherished photos. It is also best to be firm with them and tell them you expect them to honor the rules if at all they do something unpleasant. Driving off the grid tears up the bush and is not respectful to the animals thus your trip is all yours here so you’re the controller of everything. In most cases you will find your trip more peaceful and very relaxing. The Mara triangle is definitely a must visit during your safari in Kenya.
