Herds crossing the Mara River on the Masai Mara side heading back to the Serengeti

HerdTracker update 04 Oct 2019 by K Raman

K Raman captured the great migration crossing the Mara River on the Masai Mara side heading back to the Serengeti.

The Masai Mara is still busy at this time of the year, as it is a smaller area with a lot of camps! We always recommend sticking to the Serengeti between July and November, if you are looking to catch the migration.

Visiting Kenya at this time of the year is not integral to the route of the great migration, but more of an offshoot from their main Serengeti path. The herds don’t see the country border and think “we must go to Kenya” – It is just an extension of their circular route which essentially revolves around the Serengeti.

Best places to experience the migration: Kenya Safari Holidays Best places to experience the migration: Tanzania Safari Holidays

Recommended safari: Herdtracker Masai Mara Wildebeest Journey
