This annual event which is undoubtedly one of the last great animal spectacles in Kenya safaris.The Mara and south Serengeti initially had different rain patterns which are believed to have been the main trigger of this whole migration. Southern Serengeti traditionally receives rain in March-April and October whereas the Mara is April-May and August. These differences have been the main driving factor of the migration. The best time to see this in the Mara is July-October in Maasai Mara National Reserve.
