Every year, between July and August, humpback whales migrate from the cold Antarctica to the warmer – tropical or subtropical – parts of the seas and oceans to mate and reproduce. This includes Kenya’s magnificent coast.

After two months of breeding and nursing their calves, the whales make their return trip to Antarctica – which is their main feeding ground. While in the warmer climates, the whales fast and live off their fat reserves.

In the coastal waters, the gigantic wales can be seen playing and performing acrobatic moves – leaping or breaching (rising and breaking through the surface of the sky blue ocean waters).

The best place to witness this magical phenomenon is Watamu Marine National Park and Reserve, Kilifi County, Kenya as seen here: https://youtu.be/ehxzs-kwSxI 

Since humpback whale migration happens around the same time with the wildebeest migration in Maasai Mara, Kenya has a splendid opportunity to provide domestic and foreign tourists with the ‘twin migration’ ‘bush and beach’ experience.
