Why the Eighth Wonder of the world?
You must wonder, “why the eighth wonder of the world?” Well, Maasai Mara is known as the 8th wonder of the world because of the famous Wildebeest Migration. You definitely do not want to miss out on over a million wildebeest crossing Mara river, while the huge Nile Crocodiles are waiting to have a feast, as they cross over to Serengeti National Park Tanzania to literally look for greener pastures. It is one of a kind.
The best time to view this phenomenal eco-system in Kenya is between the month of July to October.
Early bookings are encouraged due to the number of tourists wanting a piece of this outstanding migration, that only happens for a period of time yearly. It is the Big event.
On your Kenyan safari, Maasai Mara will offer you a variety of Game Reserve Hotels with an authentic bush experience, so no need to worry, you just have to decide which one excites you and has your ultimate package.
