The great East Africa Migration

Safari Overview
Every year, spurred on by the dry season on the African plains in Kenya and Tanzania, close to two million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles make the epic journey from their breeding grounds in the southern Serengeti to greener, wetter grass on the northern plains during what is known as the Great Migration.As the dry season turns to wet, they travel full circle back south. Year after year, governed by the seasons as they evolve from wet to dry and back again, this cycle repeats itself.

Witnessing the Great Migration is undoubtedly one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on the planet, and a true bucket list safari adventure.
Our fantastic 12 day Great Migration safari will take you to some of the most well-known safari destinations in east Africa, including Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire National Parks in Tanzania.
