What Makes Our Kenya Migration Safari the Best?

To witness hundreds of thousands of animals crossing the Maasai Mara, as far as your eye can see, is a wildlife phenomenon with no parallel on Earth. Imagine close-up shots of thousands of wildebeest and zebra clattering over the plains, followed by a phalanx of predators—photographers won’t find a greater thrill. That’s why, if you’re making an once-in-a-lifetime trip to Africa to see the Great Migration Kenya, you must do it right. Don’t end up in crowded parks, cramped vehicles and large safari lodges far from wildlife corridors.

Best Time To Visit Kenya For The Great Migration

July to October is the Best Time To Visit Kenya for migration safaris and is when most river crossings take place. During these months, herds are making their way between Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Maasai Mara so this is when you’ll have the best chance of seeing a river crossing. It’s not an easy crossing for these animals to make, as they face threats from crocodiles, lions and poachers.
