What to see when you visit Kenya
All safaris in Kenya are epic but a safari Kenya to Masai Mara national reserve stands out as its gives a chance to encounter the spectacle of the great wildebeest migration in which millions of animals particularly wildebeests and zebras go on a treacherous journey of over a thousand kilometres crossing from Masai Mara into Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. What makes this migration so thrilling for you to see is the way these animals plunge themselves one after the other into crocodile-infested Mara river in which these hungry crocodiles gather from and wide to prey on these seemingly mad or frightened animals that have seem as if something has frightened them for them to decide to jump one after another into their own oblivion with no second thought whatsoever.
