6 DAYS MASAI MARA WILDEBEEST MIGRATION SPECIAL 2023
Wildebeest Migration Safari 2023:
The wildebeest migration is an annual event that occurs between the months of June and September, with the exact timing depending on weather patterns and the availability of food and water. It is one of the most spectacular wildlife events in the world, with over a million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles moving in a massive herd across the Serengeti plains in Tanzania and into the Masai Mara in Kenya.
Witnessing the crossing is truly spectacular and has been labelled one of the wonders of the world. But, like all things in nature, witnessing it is in the hands of the Mara gods.
The park at this time of year is brimming with wildlife, which allows opportunity for lots of action. This is a truly unique opportunity to see nature at its best and experience the vastness of the greatest plains in the world.
