The Safari Highlights

  • Witnesses first hand one of the seven wonders of the modern world-the wildebeest migration.

  • A personal interaction with nature and see survival of the fittest in play as herbivores brave the often perilous life of prey and large carnivores stock, capture, kill and feed on them.  And of course do not forget the super predators- the vultures hovering in the skies.

  • The flights from Nairobi Wilson or Diani Mombasa

  • Use of private 4x4 custom made safari land cruiser in Masai Mara National Reserve

The Wildebeest Migration in Maasai (Masai) Mara /Serengeti wildebeest migration is not about wildebeests migrating per se but rather its influence on the movement patterns of the other animals including human beings.  The migration comprise of the never ending milling of over 2.5 million wild animals composed of a about 1.7 million wildebeests, and 800,000 common Zebras and gazelle, followed closely by their predators-lions, hyenas, leopards, jackals.   Hovering in the skies are thousands of vultures, the super predators. Patient in nature, they survey the migrating herds descending on the dead carcasses reducing them to skeletons in a matter of seconds.  The hazardous crossing of crocodile invested Mara and Grumeti rivers is magical wonder of nature attracting thousands of human beings.  This survival of the fittest spectacle has been described at the "seventh wonder of the modern world".  Strategic sighting of the migrating herds tend to influence the setting up of tourism facilities. The best time to witness migration in Masai Mara National Park Kenya, is between July to September.

More About the Wildebeest


December to March

The herds spread out over wide area covering Plains of Eastern Serengeti stretching all the way to Western Ngorongoro and Masawa Game Sanctuary. It is the calving season of wildebeests and the plains of Seronera all the way to Western Ngorongoro are teaming with vast herds of wildebeest (about 1.7M) with their calves.  The wildebeest are always on the move and not even calving will disturb this rhythm.  Upon delivery, within minutes, they young calf can stand and walk with the herd.  In a few days, it can outrun any predator.  The best places to stay at this time are Kusini Camp and Ndutu Lodge.

Wildebeest herds covering the whole plain like a carpet.  From the sky, it looks like a ceaseless flow of a mighty river.


Between April and May

The calves matures and are readying for migration.  The migrating herds are leaving Eastern Serengeti and slowly approaching Central Serengeti (Serenora).    Between May and June the herds enter the western corridor of Serengeti called Grumetti.  By Mid June they start crossing Grumeti River along the Northern Corridor towards Maasai Mara


In July the herds cross the Mara River into Maasai (Masai) Mara, where mating takes place.  Between August And September the herds are settled in Masai Mara.  By the end of September, the succulent grass in Mara is diminishing and the wildebeest migration heads eastwards crossing into Northern Serengeti in October and part of November.  By December, the herds have are past central Serengeti headed to western plain of Ngorongoro, Masawa game sanctuary and Ndutu areas.
