This Safari Tour in Kenya takes you on a journey to one of the most popular safari destinations in the world, Maasai Mara Game Reserve to witness the annual Wildebeest Migration.
The Great Migration takes place from July to October, where over two million wildebeest along with hundreds of thousands of zebras and gazelle move together south in search of grassland and water.
The Wildebeest Migration is a natural phenomenon that you won't want to miss. However, that is not the only thing that this safari tour has to offer. Kenya is also home to a lot of animal species like lion, hyena, leopard, cheetah, and jackal along with cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, antelope and many more.
