Things to do and see
The Great Migration – This is without a doubt the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth. The sight of innumerable wildebeest and zebra marching in columns 40 km (25 mi) long is unforgettable. You can also witness the early life cycle of the wildebeests in February when more than 8,000 wildebeest calves are born every day.
