ITINERARY  1

Migration Special Plan for Photographers

DURATION: 7 DAYS

GROUP SIZE: 4 GUESTS PER VEHICLE

LOCATION: MASAI MARA

HIGHLIGHTS: THE GREAT MIGRATION & THE BIG FIVE

 

ABOUT: The focus of this guided safari for 7 days is the Great Migration, which is one of the most spectacular natural history occurrences in the world. Millions of grazing herds of wildebeests, zebras, gazelles and other antelopes embark on a clockwise migration through the African plains each year.  Known as the Great Migration, this mass passage is not only a great experience, but it also creates abundant photographic opportunities packed with incredible action. As the herds cross the Mara river, crocodiles lie in wait for an easy meal. On the plains, predators, especially lion prides have been seen hunting the migrating herds in synchronized movements. Our partner lodges are located at vantage points, close to the Mara river which gives our guests the upper hand in reaching favored spots to catch all the action. Our excellent team of drivers, guides and naturalists have an in-depth knowledge of the area and keep themselves constantly updated with the latest movements of the migrating herds to pre-empt excellent photographic moments and opportunities. Along the way, the Big Five of Africa, namely the African Lion, Leopard, African Elephant, Cape Buffalo and the Black Rhinoceros and other wildlife like Cheetahs and Hyenas are also easily spotted.
