The annual migration season is underway in the Masai Mara with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti national park south of the border with Tanzania in search of food.

The start of the migration signals the beginning of the most important safari tourism period in Kenya. Visitors flock to the Masai Mara to watch the wildebeest cross the crocodile-infested Mara river as well as the lions and other predators who are drawn to the park by the presence of new prey.

The animals will stay in the Mara until October, when they return south to the Serengeti in anticipation of the seasonal rainfall.
