Over two million herbivores participate in the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet as they migrate in an endless cycle in search of fresh grazing – closely followed by Africa’s big cats. The iconic Great Migration is the most thrilling and evocative wildlife spectacle imaginable.
Together, the Serengeti in Tanzania and neighbouring Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya protect the greatest and most varied collection of terrestrial wildlife on the planet. Over a million wildebeest and about 200 000 zebras make the seasonal journey to fresh pasture in the north and then cycle back to the south after the biannual rains in an inexorable flow. Closely following the herbivores are the predators that gorge themselves on this mobile feast, while rivers are made treacherous by the hungry Nile crocodiles that lie patiently in wait. The drama evoked by this wildlife spectacle is indescribably stirring.
Our itinerary brings you the very best of the best annual migration viewing in both the Serengeti and Masai Mara, with carefully selected, intimate camps in outstanding locations for superb, up-close viewing of the Great Migration and river crossings.
