Tanzania/Kenya: Migration into the Masai Mara has started

The greatest annual migration of wildlife has begun. According to several blogs from East Africa and referring to eye witnesses, zebras and wildebeests have started crossing the Mara River on their 500km way from the Southern Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the northern edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

The annual migration lasts normally from June or July and lasts until as late as October or even November. During the so-called "Great Migration" around 2.5 million animals migrate north from the Serengeti plains in search of fresh pasture, before they return to the south four to five month later.
