Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara

Masai Mara-Kenya

Behold the ecosystem holding one of the highest lion densities in the world and this is where over two million wildebeest, zebra, and Thompsons Gazelle migrate annually. It hosts over 95 species of mammals and 570 recorded species of birds and is considered the 7th wonder of the new world.

  • At 6 pm, return to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay. In the night you can hear a chorus of different animal sounds as they communicate with each other in the darkness – more than enough reason to visit.

  • Relish an evening sundowners cocktail as you view the sun go down is a good way to end the day at an extra cost

  • Return in the evening for dinner and overnight at the Camp/ Lodge.

  • Depart from the safari lodge/camp at 10 am and take an en-route game drive through the Masai Mara Reserve on day three.

  • Items of a personal nature.

  • Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara, you will see a frequent amount of wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topis, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest. Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot but reasonably common. The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October to December. There is nothing thrilling like a bush dinner to end such an adventurous day at an extra cost. The ecosystem holds one of the highest lion densities in the world and this is where over two million wildebeest, zebra, and Thompsons Gazelle migrate annually. It hosts over 95 species of mammals and 570 recorded species of birds and is considered the 7th wonder of the new world.

  • Passport/ID, camera, hat, sunglasses, torch, and clothes.
