It’s in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the Savannah-lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures. Meals and overnight at Ol Moran Camp (FB)
