Tour Summary:

This safari is to Kenya's greatest concentration of game the Masai Mara which is a continuous ecosystem with the Serengeti in Tanzania. The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest migration in July through to October when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning back south again in October.
