The Great Migration of Kenya is one of the most extraordinary natural events that take place every year in the Masai Mara region of Kenya, in which an estimated 2.5 million animals cross the Mara River in Masai Mara in search of food and water. An unparalleled spectacle to witness with your own eyes, this natural phenomenon is often referred to as one of the “new” seven wonders of the world and is the last one of its kind. The Great Migration Kenya 2020 dates are expected to fall between July and October. This is a worthwhile trip for the naturists, wildlife lovers and photographers to see nature in all its glory. Within the time frame of the Great Migration Kenya 2020 dates, you can also see the hunting spree of the local predators such as the big cats and the crocodiles that wait for prey in the Mara River. Wild Voyager promises to provide you with an unforgettable journey to witnessing the Great Migration of Kenya at Masai Mara.
Arrival at Nairobi
Nairobi is crowned the "Green City in the Sun" due to its rainforests and grasslands that offset an urban, cosmopolitan city bustling with activity. As an international air hub, it is the beating heart of Kenya. You can walk around for some shopping and have a city tour by yourself. The weather is pleasant even during the summer, and locals prefer to commute on foot through the city. Apart from the rainforests along the city borders, there are also beautiful and lush green parks to enjoy, along with museums and great restaurants.
After reaching the hotel, retire for the day because the Great Migration of Kenya awaits you.
Drive to Masai Mara
The next morning, we will drive through the roadways to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Masai Mara is now one of the seven new wonders of the world, notable primarily for its temperate climate, varied landscapes (valleys and grasslands), open spaces, and diverse species of the animal kingdom in their natural habitat resulting from the Great Migration of Kenya. During the Masai Mara game drive, you can even catch glimpses of the cheetah chasing its prey. At Masai Mara, you will observe that the three conservancies—Naboisho, Mara North, and Olare Orok—sustain the vegetation and wildlife in pristine form.

Wonders at Masai Mara
The major highlight of the trip is the Great Migration of Kenya, which finally arrives on the third day. Migration takes place throughout the year through various parts of East Africa, and it is a result of the cattles’ search for food and water. The Great Migration of Kenya is the last surviving massive mass terrestrial migration in the world, with hordes of over 1.5 million wildebeests, over 200,000 gazelles, and 350,000 zebras arriving at Masai Mara in search of food and water. You have got three full days to indulge as a spectator of the largest mass terrestrial movement of hordes of animals in the world. You will be enthralled to watch a large number of zebras and wildebeests make a huge migration across the Mara River. By roaring, snorting, and bucking, they continuously pave their ways to head west to Kenya and then back.
The showstopper of the Kenyan safari is the river-crossing scene. You can have a rare sight of hippopotami and crocodiles enjoying the river and also the cycle of the devour. As the wildebeests cross the Mara River, they need to overcome great odds, such as the big cats looking for prey and the crocodiles that lay motionless, ready to make an unexpected leap to catch one of the migrating animals for the day’s meal. The big cats welcome the migration into the meadow as it provides them with a surplus of prey to feed upon. Watching the animals travel in the Great Migration of Kenya is an awe-inspiring sight to behold.
The possible Great Migration of Kenya 2020 dates will be approximately from July to October. You will also get to explore the Maasai Manyatta experience, enjoying the traditional dances and folklore of the villages. Another attraction that awaits is a bird's eye view of the majestic Masai Mara plains from a hot air balloon. And one of these days, you will get the chance to enjoy your breakfast by the Mara River and have a sumptuous bush lunch.
The last leg in Nairobi
At last, it is the final day and final lap of the journey through Masai Mara Safari. Post breakfast, we will drive back to Nairobi City. After reaching the city, relax in the hotel and indulge in some delicious local cuisine. You can be proud that you could witness this new wonder of the world and especially the once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Great Migration of Kenya. Just like a beautiful sunrise in the Savannah, the memories of this trip will be beautifully etched in your mind.
