The Great Migration - 5 Days

The Great Migration Guide

This is our most famous of classic itineraries, The Great Migration of over 1.5 million herbivores, as they cross the crocodile infested Mara river. Banks of this river was the location of the BBC big cat diaries & scene of the most iconic safari river crossing photographs 

With numerous bespoke options, lets tailor your itinerary to include night game drives & balloon safari.

The migration is rarely ever the same in terms of precise timing and direction, as local conditions influence grass growth. The wildebeest may therefore move off the open plains earlier in some years and remain in the northern woodlands for longer in others. No one safari is ever the same! Don’t share your friends safari pictures, create your own safari album now. Best time of the year for this itinerary is June - October.
