Siringitu or ‘endless plain’ as it is called in Masai is the name for the large savannah in southern Kenya / northern Tanzania. Each year, around 1.5 million wildebeests antelopes and 300,000 zebras start their long trek from Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains, further north to Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve in search for water and fresh grass. Late September / Early October is one of the best time to spot them crossing rivers of Talek and Mara, which are a habitat for hippos and crocodiles while zebras, buffalos and giraffes graze in the neighbouring open savannah.
The plains are also home to tribes of Masais, who carry on their semi-nomadic lifestyle of traditional herding in the perimeter of national park.
Now you will have this unique chance to witness one of the great wonders of the nature. Whether trekker or hiker we all share the same passion towards nature and these African creatures are a big part of it. Great Migration is one of this worlds wonders that can not be missed !!
