Masai Mara, Kenya is a bucket-list destination for many reasons, but, primarily, all things safari. While venturing to the great plains and Serengeti landscape in search of Kenyan wildlife is always an epic vacation idea, timing your venture to see the Great Wildebeest Migration is a truly unforgettable experience.
While the migration occurs throughout the Serengeti over the course of the year as an essential part of the ecosystem, the most notable and astonishing portion of the journey tends to be the Masai Mara River leg. Get a front-row seat and watch a massive, seemingly unending herd of wildebeest run, jump, wade and swim through the Masai Mara River.
Between where to stay, essential guides to Masai Mara and expertly led safari tours through the reserve and neighboring area, AfricanMecca Safaris is a great home base for planning. Use the safari site’s tried-and-true tools for your Great Migration adventure any time in late July, August or even early September.
Word to the wise, this safari is not for the faint of heart. The Great Migration is incredibly dangerous for wildebeest and you may witness casualties. Check out even more luxury stays and customizable tours here. Masai Mara Park is truly something to behold for any nature and animal lover, so the options are nearly endless.
Vail Resorts opted to close all 37 resorts early in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, but the mountain resort operator also wanted to give back to the community in the face of this adversity. The excess perishable food from the various properties was donated to 30 local food banks, schools and community organizations in the communities where Vail Resorts employees live, work and play. Fruit, vegetables, cheese, juice, granola bars and more went to mountain communities from Colorado and Vermont to British Columbia.
