THE GREAT MIGRATION (RAW)from
Activity Level Easy
Accomodation Type Camping
The vast savannas of Kenya are world famous for the abundance of wildlife found in their plains. Straddling the Equator, and stretching from the Indian Ocean, spread in the Great Rift Valley and beyond, Kenya is a country of huge variety and exceptional beauty. Kenya is also renowned for ‘The Great Wildebeest Migration ‘of millions of herbivores across the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. After the rains when the first flush of grass turns the Masai Mara’s golden savanna green, the most mesmerizing wildlife spectacle takes place here : The Great Marvel of Wildebeest Migration. Lines of animals stretch as far as the eye can see across the plains. They come to give birth to their young and the grasslands echo with the sounds of the new-born. It is a time of plenty. But it is a time when the predators too are drawn from all around. High above on the hot winds the carrion birds, the vultures and eagles, soar. In the long grasses Lions, Cheetahs, Leopards and Hyenas prowl. Most dramatic of all is the moment when the migration arrives at the Mara River. They must cross it to reach the rich grazing. As the animals throng, Crocodiles cruise the waters. Then the bravest takes the plunge into the swirling currents and thousands follow. Situated right inside the Masai Mara Game Reserve, our campsites are ideally placed to let you to be at the heart of the Great Wildebeest Migration.
