Enter a world of elegance, wild beauty, and the magical pages of living history on the plains of East Africa on our Lands of the Great Migration – Kenya & Tanzania safari. One of the world greatest natural wonders is the Great Migration of herds of wildebeest and zebra that travel the whole of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, from the north in Kenya’s Masai Mara, south across the great rivers, and into Tanzania’s great Serengeti plains. Annually, millions of the beasts follow thousands of years of instinct in their circular migration. And, where the herds go, as do the predators.
Designed to give you the best chance to see the herds in action, this adventure extends to the best of what the region has to offer. Starting in Kenya, in the dramatic and unique Samburu Game Reserve, it continues to the world famous Masai Mara, home to the Maasai people and the big five game. Continuing your ‘flightseeing’ experience, see the densest concentration of wildlife in Africa at Ngorongoro Crater, and enjoy a true “Out of Africa” experience on the plains of the Serengeti.
Staying in some of the finest lodges and tented camps that Africa has to offer, exploring the best and most prolific game reserves in Kenya and Tanzania, you will track one of the greatest of natural wonders while traveling over the Lands of the Great Migration
