Kenya is one of the two countries in East Africa where unaltered Annual Migration of mammal grazers occurs. Annual Migration is an all-year event where mammal grazers with over a million wildebeest, thousands of zebra and gazelles move in pursue fresh water and pastures to graze on. In Kenya, the Great Migration occurs in the Masai Mara National Reserve, located in the southern part of the country at the southernmost boundary that doubles as an international boundary between Kenya and Tanzania.
The long journey of the Annual Wildebeest Migration with other mammal grazers is usually concluded in the Masai Mara National Reserve, and they congregate here in large numbers before they migrate back to the Serengeti in Tanzania.
The great migration can be seen all year round however, the Wildebeest Migration in Masai Mara reaches the climax between the months of June to November, and many visitors visit the Reserve during these periods of the year.
