The Mara River is a highlight of the Northern Serengeti and is famous for its dramatic river crossings during the great wildebeest migration. This incredible event happens every year between July to September, attracting visitors from all over the world.

The waterholes in the area attract a range of wildlife, making it an exciting experience for visitors.
