This itinerary gives a range of habitats including the Masai Mara and Serengeti where The Great Migration takes place in August and September every year.
On the vast open plains of the Serengeti and deep into the rolling hills of the Masai Mara the largest animal herds on the planet move in a never-ending natural pattern in response to an undeniable imperative - the need to find fresh, nourishing grazing.
This exceptional natural phenomenon is renowned as Africa’s greatest wildlife spectacle. The thundering hooves of the herds and the enormous clouds of fine red dust they leave in their wake have become an icon of East African safaris.
Stay at four individually styled authentic African camps, a mixture of luxury lodges and under canvas comfort. Camps are strategically situated in exclusive locations close to seasonal game migrations in the National Parks and in private concessions. These are based on small groups. There is more driving than on a fly-in type safari.
