Experience the Great Migration

When it comes to exploring the natural world, safaris provide some of the most memorable and moving experiences. For the ultimate experience, time your safari holiday to coincide with the Great Migration, which is widely considered to be one of the most wonderful natural spectacles on the planet.


The Great Migration: Nature's greatest spectacle

The Great Migration, which sees thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra flock to the Masai Mara in search of food, is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet. It forms part of an annual cycle, during which millions of wildebeest gradually make their way around the Serengeti, forever in search of fresh water and pasture.

Timing is, of course, crucial if you hope to see the Great Migration yourself. Typically, the spectacle can be seen in the Masai Mara between July and October. The actual movement of the animals is dictated by rainfall, so the dates do vary from one year to the next.


The splendour of the Masai Mara

One of the world's most famous national reserves, the Masai Mara in Kenya is home to a dazzling array of wildlife, making it an enduringly popular choice for safaris. The spectacle of the Great Migration is the shining star of its attractions, but there is far more than herds of wildebeest and zebra to see here.

Indeed, during game safaris in the Masai Mara, you can expect to see buffalo, Thomson's and Grant's gazelles, topi and numerous big cat species. As you would expect, this combination of grazing animals and big cats such as leopards and lions makes for some truly dramatic natural displays of hunting. Being so close to the raw power of nature, and seeing the speed and agility of these creatures for yourself, is truly awe-inspiring.


Amazing experiences to have during your safari

Of course, witnessing the wildebeest migration will be the highlight of any safari in the Masai Mara during this time of year - but the wonderful experiences need not end there. Indeed, there are a number of amazing extras you can include in your trip to make it all the more memorable, as well as more tailored towards your individual interests.

Here are just some of the possibilities:

  • A balloon safari: Observing gazelles grazing, lions prowling and wildebeest galloping from high above the plains is possible with a balloon safari. Ascend towards the clouds and feel utterly tranquil as you watch the drama of nature play out far below you.

  • Guided nature walks: Learning more about the local environment can really enhance your trip. Giving you a chance to find out more about everything from local plants to the best way of approaching animals on food, a walk with a naturalist guide is a truly rewarding extra.

  • Tree planting initiatives: Safaris are such a rewarding experience that it's common to want to give something back to the landscape that has offered you so much. Tree planting initiatives allow you to do exactly this - purchase and plant an indigenous tree not only to make a contribution, but also to make another connection with this magnificent place.
