Kenya has considerable land area devoted to wildlife habitats, including the Masai Mara, where blue wildebeest and other herbivores participate in a large scale annual migration. More than 1 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebras participate in this migration across the Mara River.
The “Big Five” game animals of Africa, that is the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros, and elephant, can be found in Kenya. Significant populations of other wild animals, reptiles and birds can be found in the national parks and game reserves in the country.
The annual animal migration occurs between June and September when millions of animals migrate a distance of 2,900 kilometres (1,802 mi) from the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya, in a constant clockwise fashion, searching for food and water supplies.
This Migration of the wildebeest is a curious spectacle listed among the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.
