The Wildebeest Migration, is one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World” and also known as “The World Cup of Wildlife”. If there is a safari you should go on, this has to be it. The Maasai Mara and the Serengeti National Park together form what no other reserve or park in Africa can! It is incredible, it is magical, and it is indescribable so it is a must to visit.

No where in the world is there a movement of animals as immense as the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.
