Come and witness the wildebeest migration in two of Africa's most iconic wildlife destinations - Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve and Tanzania's Serengeti National Park.

Approximately two million wildebeest, including animals such as zebra and gazelles move anually in an endless cycle across Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara in search for better grass and water resources. However, they're closely followed by predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah, which makes for spectacular game viewing that few can match.
