This is where millions of Wildebeest cross the Mara River from the Serengeti National park of Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve of Kenya – an annual spectacular event, which brings along thousands of plains game and predators to the Mara, making the park a beehive of ‘wildlife activities’. Late afternoon can be spared for a visit to the Maasai village to be enlightened on the Maasai culture and perhaps enjoy a Maasai cultural dance.
