Masai Mara Game Reserve is a Natural Wonder of the World

ZebrasEach year, thousands of wildebeest and zebras migrate from the Serengeti to Masai Mara in search of pastures and settle in the Mara for 3 months in July to October and then cross the Mara River as they move.

One cannot afford not to be moved by what can be considered the ‘biggest wildlife spectacle on earth.’ It’s truly a wonder when you watch animals interacting, hunting, especially by the crocodiles in the Mara River.

Mara, the vast, open grasslands of the Serengeti-Mara is home to over 3 million large mammals. These include over 1.4 million wildebeest, which migrate in an enormous, straggling herd each year between the southern part of the Serengeti to the northern part and back again.
