With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

Highlights

The wildebeest migration is one of the most desired safari experiences to witness, and rightly so! With approximately 1.5 – 2 million wildebeest and zebra migrating across the plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, it is the largest migration on Earth. Although the herd patterns differ each year, our specialists will curate an itinerary that gives you the best opportunity to see the wildebeest migration herds, no matter what time of year you travel. Between the months of June and October, you will stay in a luxury tented camp in the northern plains of the Serengeti, before flying across to the beautiful island of Zanzibar. Between November and March, you will stay in the southern plains of the Serengeti. Our Africa specialists will offer detailed explanations and curate the perfect safari for you. So if the Great Migration is on your bucket list, get in touch today.

This will be in a small Cessna Caravan aircraft and as you come down to land, you will get the opportunity to see an array of animals from the air; Welcome to the Serengeti! You will spend the next five nights in a luxury tented camp called Olakira. The best thing about this camp is that, as a migration camp, it moves throughout the year based on the location of the wildebeest herds. You will have two game drives per day – one early morning and another late afternoon – to take advantage of the cooler weather, and the animals being at their most active. Your safaris will be led by professional guides and you will be looked after exceptionally well.
