Visiting the Masai Mara National Reserve and specifically witnessing the great wildebeest migration is always on the bucket-list of travellers looking for safaris in Africa.
To have only ever heard about the spectacular move of wild animals from the Serengeti National PArk in Tanzania to the Mara in Kenya only raised my urge to witness what is documented as one of not only the Wonders of Africa but also the Wonders of the World.
On your next safari to Kenya, you just need to grab that opportunity and experience this world wonder that involve millions of animals crossing the Mara River every year – a great wildlife spectacle in the whole world.
