7 Days 6 Nights
Join us on an 8-day safari to Maasai Mara, where you can witness the astonishing wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle migration, and the fierce predators that follow their trail. The Great Wildebeest Migration is the world’s largest animal migration, with over 2 million animals moving in a clockwise direction across the Serengeti (Tanzania) and Maasai Mara (Kenya) ecosystems each year. Our safari will take you straight into the heart of the action, particularly when the wildebeest cross the Mara River to reach more lush pastures. Beneath the river’s surface, crocodiles lie in wait as they are skilled ambush predators who approach their prey slowly underwater before making their move. This safari is a photographer’s dream come true, with opportunities to capture the action, reaction, and natural cycle of life and death.
