This trip will take you to Masai Mara to experience the Great Migration. From July to October in Masai Mara one can witness one of the most incredible natural events on the planet – the Great Migration, the world’s largest migration of wildlife. Following the rains, 1,5 million of wildebeest and thousands of zebras and gazelles travel together in a clockwise direction from Serengeti through Masai Mara. This natural phenomenon is a true show. Along the way, drama is always present, as the week are taken by predators, while others are born, sustaining the circle of life. It is fascinating to watch the animals for a few days and learn about their habits and survival techniques.View full itinerary
