SAFARI TOURS IN KENYA

 

The finest wildlife sanctuaries in East Africa are the Masai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, home to migrant birds, about 57 different species of birds of prey and wildlife in abundance.  Due to the prolific amount of game, it is not surprising that lion, cheetah and leopard find an ongoing source of food here. One of the most spectacular sights in the are is in the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, wehn the massive migration of animals to new grazing pastures takes place each year. Between July and August, literally millions of wildebeest, often aptly termed the "clowns of the African wildlife", head in their droves from the Serengeti in search of fresh grasslands further north towards the Masai Mara in Kenya. The best place from which to view the mass migration is from the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya or Serengeti in Tanzania.
