Have you ever wondered what it feels like, exploring the expanses of the great African savannah? Or spending a night in tented camps knowing that cheetah’s roam free only 50 feet away? Have you ever spent your days re-watching Lion King and being in complete awe of the way the wildebeests stampede through the valley? Then The Great Wildebeest Migration is something you need to witness! And this stampede will have a happier ending – we promise!
Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, The Great Wildebeest Migration is known as nature’s oldest pilgrimage. The seasonal spectacle plays out on the endless plains of the Serengeti National Park and the Masai Mara National Reserve, as over a million wildebeest, gazelle and zebra stampede towards better grazing areas. This is the stage on which the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth’ plays out, as it is by far the greatest mass movement of land mammals on the entire globe.
Not only does it offer incredible views of the plains dotted with mammals, but the rivers are often infested with large Nile crocodiles lying in wait for some unsuspecting prey. Visiting the right area in the right season will treat travelers to astonishing sightings of this natural phenomenon. In March or April, one can witness these great beasts migrating from The Serengeti in Tanzania to Lake Victoria, after which they migrate again come July or August to the Masai Mara Game reserve in search of greener grass and luscious lands. The latter is the instance in which many travelers can witness some of the best safari opportunities in the world where wildebeests dot the plains across a landscape made up of vast grasslands interrupted by rocky outcrops, rivers, and forests.
To experience this incredible feat of nature, Mackinnons Travels is now offering great experiences to Kenya and beyond with their packages that include not just wildlife tours, but views and experiences worth treasuring for a lifetime!
