Are you ready to witness one of the greatest migrations in the animal kingdom? An action packed 9 days of fun and adventure! They also call it the greatest wildlife spectacle on mother Earth! During the months of July – September, millions of animals in search of fresh pastures & water, cross over from the north of Serengeti in Tanzania to Kenya’s Masai Mara. The sheer scale of this migration is overwhelming. 1,300,000 Wildebeest, 360,000 Thomson’s Gazelle, 191,000 Zebra to name a few, form a part of this spectacle.
During this time Lions, Cheetahs, Hyenas, Leopards, Crocodiles wait around the Mara river. The diverse group of large mammals, plunge into the Mara river expecting greener pastures on the other side, only to be attacked. With the attack starts the battle of survival. Survival of the best.
This migration provides the best opportunity for photography and wildlife viewing. We have also picked the best lodges to make sure that get the most luxurious stay and strategic position close to the Mara river and then deep inside the Mara reserve.
You also to get a chance to spend time at the exotic Lake Nakuru National Park, to photograph the World’s Largest Population of Pink Flamingos and many other predators, birds and other wildlife.
To ensure that our participants get a chance to be a witness to the great migration, we work closely with the authorities to get real-time information about animal movement in order to ensure that our photography group can be at the right time at the right place!
Our 4 x 4 Safari vehicles, can tame the off-beat roads even in bad weather conditions that other vehicles cannot provide for unhindered photography.
