No wildlife event on the planet rivals that of Kenya, an exotic haven which holds abundant wildlife with splendid sceneries. Each year, an enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra, two million strong, make a great circuit across the Serengeti Plains as they travel into Kenya‘s famed Maasai Mara and back, following the new grass that sprouts with the seasonal rains. One of the highlights of this spectacular event is the crossing of the Mara River, often referred to as the “World Cup of Wildlife”. During the entire journey, a host of predators follows in stealthy pursuit. Truly, a once in a lifetime experience.
