Kenya Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration 2009/10

Every year starting from the early July to late September, over a million wildebeests and Zebras followed by the big cats cross over the rolling plains of the Masai Mara setting the most spectacular marvel of mother nature that cannot be witnessed in any other part of the world. This undoubtedly becomes the best times to visit Africa. The selected Safari will show you this and more. On this safari we will visit the premier parks and game reserves of Kenya. First we will head north to the lush forest of the Aberdare mountain range, where we will spend our time observing the many forest species that come to the waterhole.
