Vast herds of buffalo, Zebra, and wildebeest roam the plains. Impala, gazelle, giraffe and hartebeest grace the landscape, and the cautious topi may also be seen standing sentinel on earth mounds on constant look-out of predators.The waters of the Mara River are home to crocodiles and pools of hippo, the acacia woodlands and revering forests favored by leopard and elephant, and the open savannah and dry bush areas play host to the plain's game and their attendant predators such as Lion, cheetah, hyena and jackal.

MASAI MARA WILDEBEEST MIGRATION SAFARI

( THE GREATEST TREK ON EARTH)

The Masai Mara is a fascinating ecosystem covering 1,500sq km of Savannah, grasssland,woodlands and riverine forests. It is inhabited by the "Big five", as well as a diversiy of other plain game and arich variety of bird life.Every year, ussually between july and octomber,the promise of rain brings more than 1.5 million Widebeest and Zebra together in one massive herd headed for the rich bounty of lush grasslands in the Masai Mara.They congregrate at the Mara river,their crossing into Kenya from Tanzania is a dramatic spectacle fraught with lurking danger from crocodile and other hopeful carnivores.
Wildebeest are abundant and their migration patterns include not only the spectacular Mara - Serengeti migration,but also seasonal treks by Kenya's own home-bred wildebeests.These creatures follow the grass wherever it is found.Because the migration last for up to four months, visitors have ample opportuinity to see the action.

This unforgetable sight has long been dubbed the"Greatest Show on Earth" Last year it added the long - deserved title of seventh wonder of the modern world.
As the vegetation and water holes dry, the herds start the trek north. Following the rain pattern they cross the Tanzania / Kenya border to the rich Kenyan Masai Mara in search of the 4,000 tons of grass they eat each day. By September and early October they start winding their way back to Tanzania.
The sight of the mass migration is awesome. Many do not survive this trip as they expire from exhaustion and injury or fall prey to hungry crocodile in the struggle to cross the Talek and Mara rivers. As the migration unfolds, the wildebeest, zebra and gazelle are trailed by the predators- lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena and scavenger birds. It is an event one cannot afford to miss.
