Experience The Great Wildebeest Migration In The Maasai Mara By Air or Road
A popular sight to be observed between the months of July and October is the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle to and from the Serengeti. Leopards, lions and cheetahs can also be observed in the area. The untouched landscape is perfect for wildlife to flourish and human numbers given access to the area is limited. All this combined makes safari excursions to the Masai Mara National Reserve an exceptional and unforgettable experience.
Here at Natural World Kenya Safaris we provide a selection of Masai Mara drive – in and fly – in safari tour excursions that vary in duration, accommodation options and amenities and include visits to the Masai Mara National Reserve. Our friendly tour driver guides have vast knowledge and experience of the area which allows them to navigate the area and give you the best seats in the house.

If you’re looking to see a spectacular array of wildlife when on your safari, the best game viewing months in Kenya are during the dry season from late June to October. The Masai Mara is also Kenya’s most noted location for the wildebeest migration, due to the Mara River crossings. This usually happens in July, however it is hard to say exactly when.
