Things to do
The plains of the Maasai Mara have sprung to life as the Great Migration has been sighted already.
The spectacle, which is ranked one of the ‘seven new wonders of the world’, normally begins in mid-June and continues to September as up to one million wildebeest, as well as hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelles and other game cross to and from Kenya and Tanzania. But this year they’ve crossed into Kenya early.
In the heart of the migration the wildebeest will meander between the western and eastern sides of the Mara river, crossing it at different points almost daily. The sighting at the Sand River crossing point at the end of last month was unexpected.
The changing weather patterns are thought to be the reason behind this year’s early migration with Tanzania experiencing heavy rainfall and rapid pasture growth it’s made it difficult for the wildebeest to graze, forcing them to migrate earlier than usual.
With the Annual Great Migration fast approaching and Mahali Mzuri's prime spot in Kenya’s Olare Motorogi Conservancy get ahead of the herd and book your trip of a lifetime now!
