On thrilling game drives, expert guides will deliver close encounters with the “Big Five” and so much more – prides of lions, lumbering elephants, black rhinos, buffalo, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, giraffes, zebras and over 450 species of colorful birds. Few places on Earth offer such incredible beauty and bounty.
Experience the Famous Wildebeest Migration
Every year, nature puts on one of the most spectacular wildlife shows on Earth: the Great Wildebeest Migration. This incredible natural event is a journey of survival and drama. The Great Wildebeest Migration takes place in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, which is the epicenter of this breathtaking spectacle. The migration involves over two million wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles as they traverse vast landscapes, facing formidable obstacles and predators along the way.
The migration has two main phases: the first being the calving season, where the wildebeests give birth to their young in the southern Serengeti, and the second being the treacherous river crossings in the northern Serengeti and Maasai Mara. These river crossings are where the migration’s drama truly unfolds, with crocodiles lurking in the waters, and lions, leopards, and cheetahs lying in wait on the riverbanks.
To experience this incredible journey, you can embark on guided safaris and hot air balloon rides with Eastern Vacations Kenya Safaris and get unparalleled views of the vast herds and the surrounding landscapes.
