What is the Migration?
This is an annual event that has repeated itself time and again as many thousands of animals embark on their long trek from the Serengeti National Park into the Masai Mara, which is its extension to the south. Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and antelope cross over the Mara as they escape from the dry areas of Serengeti in search of greener pastures on the Kenyan side. This is a very spectacular and unique event that is a must see. Witness ambushes by predators such as the big cats; crocodiles lying in wait for gnus in the Mara River; thousands succumbing to nature by drowning in their attempt to cross the river; young ones born on the move; and just the sheer numbers that sweep across the Mara plains. This is a sight to behold and one cannot afford to miss this annual occurrence.
