Kenya Believe My Luck?

Great Migration, Kenya

Great Migration, Kenya

The awesome Kelly sent me this stunning picture of the Great Migration from Kenya. Now before all you wildlife enthusiasts start shouting at your computer screens, the Great Migration takes place over the borders between Tanzania and Kenya. Apparently wildebeest are rather apathetic to sovereign borders. The migration is dependent upon rainfall patterns during the year and they will start moving as soon as they need to graze elsewhere. It is between July and August, however, that the wildebeest cross the river Mara from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania into the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya. The postcard says that it’s the 7th wonder of the (probably natural) world and I can imagine why. It’s something that I would love to see in my lifetime. Thank you Kelly, I am most lucky to have a postcard from your great country!
