The migration of wildebeests and zebras have now entered the Mara.Every indication shows that the stage is set for the world’s most fascinating wildlife spectacle. Herds of mainly zebras and wildebeest have crossed the border near sand river gate. They could be seen in the mornings taking their traditional route towards Roan hill, and some have already crossed the main road to the Mara river from Sekenani gate. Their movement however is slower because of the amount of grass in their way. Since April this year we have continued having intermittent rains which has made the plains covered in long green grass.
Book any of our safaris starting from Nairobi and going to Masai Mara National Reserve either by Road or Fly to Masai Mara.
