In addition to these, Masai Mara teems with other fascinating wild animal species: giraffes, zebras, hippos, baboons, wildebeests, warthogs, gazelles, crocodiles and numerous bird species. The annual migration of millions of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles between July to September is a spectacle not to be missed by any visitor to the Mara. The wildebeest, who travel in herds for more than 900 kilometres crossing from the Serengeti plains north to the Maasai Mara, encounter their final obstacle at the Mara River.
