The wildebeest Migration stands out as one of nature’s breath taking scenery and occurrence. Between January and February yearly, the Serengeti boasts of flush green highly nutritious grass. Within this period, millions of wildebeest give birth to their young in the Serengeti game reserve in Tanzania which grass are grazed flat and dry out by March.
By months of July and October, the migration begins from Tanzania’s Serengeti Games reserve, located at the south of the Kenya border. The herds in search of food turn north to the Masai Mara where nutritious green leaves can be found in their abundance.
Kenya recognizes over fifty tribes of native people. The Maasai are one of the very few tribes who have retained most of their traditions, lifestyle and lore. Unlike many other tribes in Kenya, the Maasai are semi-nomadic and pastoral: they live by herding cattle and goats.
According to their oral history, the Maasai people’s origins are in the Nile Valley region of what is now South Sudan, before they moved south around 300 years ago, conquering other tribes and living as nomadic pastoralists.
