The Great Migration

The annual Great Migration of the wildebeest, which takes place every year on the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara is one of nature’s most awe-inspiring spectacles and is unsurprisingly a major draw for visitors to these world-renowned nature reserves. Where you can observe the migration depends very much on when you are going as the migration spans two countries. Kenya and Tanzania are very much driven by the rainy season, which usually runs from October to May and is at its height in April.
