5 Days Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara

Great-Migration-in-Masai-Mara

Trip Overview

'Great Migration'. This annual trek from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara by millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles is an incredible sight to see. The animals set out on their trek from the Serengeti sometime in July and August and start arriving in the Masai Mara around the same time. One of the dramatic legs of this quest is the crossing of the infamous Mara River. During the river crossing the herd animals encounter the perils of crocodiles laying in wait for an easy meal. Come October, the throngs of animals slowly head back to the Serengeti. Naturally nature lives by its own time table, so there's no way to know the exact dates that the migration will occur in any given year. However, the best months to view the migration in the Masai Mara are September and October. Overall the best months for spotting wildlife in the Mara ecosystem is from June to October.

After breakfast collect packed lunch and depart for a full day exploring the Cross migration
You can see the migration during a safari game drive in the Masai Mara Game reserve which is conducted in specialized vehicles driver by experienced Driver-Guides. As there are several core points where the wildebeest cross the rivers, it may be necessary to access and station oneself at these points during a day-long outing in the reserve as some of the lodges and camps can be up to an hour's drive from the ideal vantage points. Most tourists who come specially to see the migration consider seeing the river crossings a highlight of their tour and therefore want to spend enough time at these crossing points, which by the way tend to vary slightly every year while staying within a generally similar sub locality of the reserve.
