One of the most incredible natural occurrences that can be seen anywhere in the globe is the great wildebeest migration. The Great Migration is an annual migration that takes place between July and September and involves millions of wildebeest, as well as enormous numbers of zebra, Grant’s gazelle, Thompson’s gazelle, elands, and impalas. This migration takes place across the wider Masai Mara-Serengeti habitat. This trip will give you a chance to watch the whole event and the beautiful wildlife activity.
