Add to this the ever-present predators and life-threatening obstacles and you have the perfect mix for one of the most captivating wildlife events on the planet. The large herds follow the rains across East Africa and there are plenty of national parks from which to encounter the vast herds, but there is no place quite like the Masai Mara to see the great migration.
The enormous herds of wildebeest and zebras pour into the Masai Mara between the months of June and October, where they face treacherous obstacles such as the Mara River. Crossing the Mara River is the most dangerous leg of the great migration as there is always an opportunist crocodile lurking in the depths of the waters, waiting for a wildebeest to fall back and to tire from the crossing. And it's this drama which makes the river crossing such a spectacle, and the reason why, between the months of June and October, there is an influx of safari-goers to Kenya hoping to catch a glimpse of the epic great migration at they cross the Mara River.
Our Great Migration Safari gives you the best chance of witnessing the river crossing. You will stay in Ashnil Mara Camp which is located on the banks of the Mara River - it's even possible to witness the river crossing from the camp if you are lucky!
