The Masai Mara Reserve is legendary for its abundance of
wildlife. Big Cat and Big Five country all year round, it's also
the stage for the biggest show on earth - the Great Migration. From
around July to October, millions of grunting wildebeest and zebra
blanket the plains, often crossing the Mara River and moving
between Tanzania and Kenya. In pursuit, predators including lion
and cheetah follow on looking for an opportunity of the next meal.
The rich ecosystem attracts a stunning variety of bird and animal
life. Take a game drive and follow antelope, bat-eared foxes, and
crop-eared caracal. Find hidden spots where rhino and elephant
roam. Search for that pride of lions on the hunt for prey. Spot
birds from the 300 species that the Mara is famous for.
The Serengeti is one of the best places to see large predators
where cheetah, lion and leopard lie languidly in the nearby kopjes
by day. Visitors come to the Serengeti for the big game, and this
remote corner of the vast ecosystem never disappoints, where
buffalo, elephant, giraffe and even rhino can be seen close to
camp. Every year the Serengeti, plays host to the epic wildebeest
migration. One of the highlights is the calving season, usually
January to March, where one sees the arrival of newborn zebra and
wildebeest take place.
