The wildebeest migration is one of the Seven New Wonders Of The World and it’s easy to see why – millions of animals, including wildebeest, gazelle, zebra and eland, all crossing the open plains in search of greener pastures and fresh water.
And of course with the herbivores, come the carnivores – and the circle continues as lion, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas and crocodile take their pick.
If you’re planning a trip to Africa, the annual migration is one journey you don’t want to miss, and one of the best places to experience this is the Masai Mara. The Masai Mara is a large game reserve in Kenya and it’s named after the local Masai people who have lived on the land for many centuries.
Every year during the migration, the plains of the Masaii Mara become a get-away to millions of animals who feed on the green pastures and relish in the rainstorms, starting in around July and lasting until around early October when they start to make their way south again.
Not only is the Masai Mara popular for the migration itself, but it’s also home to an abundance of animals all year round, including Masai Lions, Kenyan Cheetahs and all of the Big Five.
When looking for accommodation in Masai Mara, the Mara Bushtops offers a range of accommodation packages to suit. Not only do you have the opportunity to stay in the heart of the Masai Mara for an experience you’ll never get anywhere else in the world, but you get to do it in luxury. Mara Bushtops offers comfortable king beds, with your own private deck – so not only do you get to hear the local wildlife as you fall asleep, but you can wake early morning and see them from the comfort of your balcony, including giraffes, elephant, deer and much more.
This is African glamping at its finest.
