Masai mara - Lake Nakuru Tour

Get to the maasai mara at the right time of the year you will be treated to great migration of millions of wildebeest this movement of the herbivores is immense, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya in July through to October. They cross over to get greener pastures during which time the grass is green and at an average human height and by the time they are migrating back all that grass is all consumed and at an ankle height. The migration has to cross the famous Mara River in the Maasai Mara home to hundreds of crocodiles who will stop noting to devour the tasty prey crossing over. This is one of the highlights as the animals try to cross over the Mara River' alive In the Maasai Mara they will be hunted, stalked, and run down by the larger carnivores. The Maasai Mara also has one of the largest densities of lion in the world and is no wonder this is the home of the BBC wildlife channels Big Cat Diary.
