Great Migration: Tanzania & Kenya

One of the greatest shows on Earth, the great migration is an epic wildlife spectacle unrivaled anywhere. A moving pageantry with a cast of millions, this is when herds of animals are on the move through Africa from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and back again... on the ultimate quest for food, water and survival, determined to let nothing stop them in their tracks... To witness the Migration from tented safari camps perfectly pitched and game drives strategically sited is to truly become a part of Africa's ever poignant circle of life... Staggering numbers of wildebeest thunder across the plains alongside zebras and gazelles that gallop and sprint their way through the wilderness, predators in wait, on an annual march that takes them from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya... Spend two nights in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with a game drive and picnic lunch in the wildlife-rich crater... fly from Lake Manyara to Serengeti National Park where overnight stays in a mobile camp enable timely sightings of migrating wildlife on private safari game drives with expert trackers... a flight from the Serengeti to wildlife-rich Masai Mara National Reserve is followed by three nights in a safari camp with daily game drives. Unique experiences include; a stay in a mobile safari camp designed to move with wildebeest, zebras, eland and gazelles as they migrate to grassier plains, usually followed by natural predators such as lions, hyenas and leopards and a hot air balloon ride with breakfast in either the Serengeti or Masai Mara. A most remarkable travel experience...

Stop en route for a visit at an Isoitik Village. Here, you'll have an opportunity to participate in a medicine walk and learn how the Masai people use the local vegetation for various medicinal cures.

Day 3 Karatu, Tanzania
Garden of Eden in Ngorongoro Crater

From aboard your four-wheel-drive vehicle, you'll have an opportunity to spot Africa's renowned Big Five: buffalo, elephant, leopard, the lion and the endangered, rare black rhinoceros, as well as herds of zebras, wildebeest and gazelles roaming life-giving landscapes of grasslands, swamps and forests.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 4 Arusha, Tanzania
Fly to the Serengeti

In Maasai, the word Serengeti means "the place where the land moves on forever." See why when you fly to Serengeti National Park this morning where over a million wildebeest and some 200,000 zebras make a trek from the southern Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again every year. In spite of the dangers they face from crocodiles or weather conditions, they are driven by a deeply held instinct to constantly search for food and water. Their annual trek takes them through a variety of parks, reserves and protected areas with different habitats. Check into your semi permanent mobile camp for a memorable three-night stay in the heart of the park, then join an expert tracker for an eye-opening afternoon game drive into the Serengeti wilderness. Dinner is served back at the camp this evening.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 5 Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Game drives in Serengeti Nat'l Park

Today, get ready for a game drive through Serengeti National Park (either in the morning or afternoon, depending on the migration of the animals).

The rest of the day is at your leisure and tonight, sleep to the sounds of nearby wildlife.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 6 Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
More Game Drives in the Serengeti

Morning and afternoon game drives keep you on the move with the animals that pass through the Serengeti; on days when the migration is in full force, spend the entire day experiencing this amazing wildlife phenomenon as herds of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras thunder by... with a few hungry big cats tailing behind.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 7 Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Fly to Masai Mara

An early morning flight out of the Serengeti whisks you to the shores of Lake Victoria then onto Kenya where you land in the Masai Mara National Reserve for a two-night stay at a tented camp that looks out onto the Sabaringo River and the plains of the Masai Mara, one of the world's richest wildlife reserves. Head out after lunch for a game drive that offers the opportunity to view an array of animals, including zebras, cheetahs, wildebeest, gazelles and the "Big Five," up close. Tonight, a briefing for tomorrow's hot air balloon ride precedes dinner at your camp.

Day 8 Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Experience the wildlife of the Masai Mara

Enjoy some free time before a late afternoon game drive takes you once more through the Masai Mara.
