5 days wildebeest migration experience.
5 days of Masai mara wildebeest migration experience safari starts from Nairobi and ends in Nairobi, it entails going down to Kenya’s most favored national park ( Masai mara national reserve). The reserve spans a distance of approximately 1,510 km². The reserve portrays a true African wilderness with extensive lands covered with grass, hills and dotted with trees commonly the acacia tree species. Masai mara perhaps hosts one of the worlds most anticipated wildlife movements (the great wildebeest migration), the migration sees the movements of millions of wildebeest along with the zebras from Tanzania’s Serengeti national park crossing to Masai mara through the mara river. The motive of the movement is attributed the search for fresh grass to free huge herds. It also noticed that during the migration the animals give birth, therefore they return with young ones.
