Maasai Mara hotels, lodges fully booked ahead of wildebeest migration

The wildebeest migration is one of the greatest natural spectacles

The managers of the facilities said they are awaiting the spectacle even though they might be forced to seek additional accommodation because of the high number of visitors expected.

“We have near-full capacity in terms of business through the months of June, July and August, and so far we haven’t had any cancellations or other challenges,” Sarova Mara manager Duncan Mwangi said.

Greatest spectacle

The annual wildebeest migration from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is one of the greatest natural spectacles.

Taunted as the eighth wonder of the world, over a million wildebeests and about 200,000 zebras and gazelles cross the border of Kenya and Tanzania for a four month’s stay (July-October) in the savannah of this national reserve.
