Hotels and lodges at the Maasai Mara National Reserve have reported full to near-full capacity bookings ahead of the wildebeest migration next month.
The managers of the facilities said they are awaiting the spectacle even though they might be forced to seek additional accommodation because of the high number of visitors expected.
βWe have near-full capacity in terms of business through the months of June, July and August, and so far we havenβt had any cancellations or other challenges,β Sarova Mara manager Duncan Mwangi said.
The annual wildebeest migration from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is one of the greatest natural spectacles.
Taunted as theΒ eighth wonder of the world, over a million wildebeests and about 200,000 zebras and gazelles cross the border of Kenya and Tanzania for a four monthβs stay (July-October) in the savannah of this national reserve.
