By far, the most spectacular of all masai mara kenya tour attractions remains the mammoth wildebeest migration through plains and rivers in the masai mara. Driven by the sheer will to get to fresher grass fields and the annual difference of rains cycle in the masai mara and the serengeti plains, the wildebeest cover over 1000km of wilderness in a non-defined circle to reach the fresh grass.

Accumilating in their thousands on the first masai mara river bank, hesitant of taking the first leap, the front line are eventually forced by the pushing rear mass of thousands of wildebeest into the river.

That first leap into the nile crocodile infested river prompts the trepidation-filled 5 feet leaps of the gnu into the river, desparate to overcome the treacherous mara river crossing to the promised land. The sheer numbers of the fearfull, leaping and kicking wildebeest catches the crocodile by surprise forcing them to give way from the stampede and guaranteed death from trampling.

The carnage of the river crossing, even without the help from crocodiles in the masai mara river result mainly from the stampede drowning and breaking the spines of others already in the river.
