Undoubtedly one of nature’s spectacles, the great wildebeest migration is a bucket-list experience for travellers looking for an authentic African safari experience.

Every year, between the months of August and October, thousands of wildebeest and other migratory animals such as Tho
mson’s gazelle and zebra will cross the Nile crocodile-infested Mara River waters in an attempt to reach the lush, green grass plains of the Masai Mara National Reserve.

It’s the ultimate life-and-death spectacle and one that leaves travellers with unforgettable memories. If you’re planning a Kenya safari, here are 10 reasons why you should see the great wildebeest migration river crossings in 2024.
