Masai Mara Game Reserve

Dubbed one of the 7 new wonders of the world, the annual Migration is a natural cycle that replenishes and renews the grasslands of East Africa. Each June, around 1.3 million Wildebeest gather in the Serengeti to calve. They slowly mass into a huge single herd, until the dry season withers their supply of fresh grass. The scent of rain to the North begins to draw the herd throughout July, and soon the world’s greatest animal migration is underway.

Its main peaks are Ol Donyo Lesatima (3,999m) and Kinangop (3,906m) separated by a long saddle of alpine moorland at over 3,000m. The Aberdares are an important water catchment area providing water to the Tana and Athi rivers.
