Africa Great Migration Safaris

If you have ever been fascinated by National Geographic and its focus on animal migrations, chances are you were viewing the Great Migration that occurs across Africa's plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania and the Masai Mara in Kenya.

Our Africa great migration safaris (listed below) focuses primarily on witnessing the incredible spectacle of the Great Wildebeest Migration in its various forms. Readers unfamiliar with the patterns of the migration should note that the migration is not a single act that occurs only once during the year, but it is a continuous movement of over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle, moving endlessly in pursuit of grazing, water and breeding within this ecosystem. With numerous predators close at hand, it is this circle of life and death between the Serengeti and Masai Mara that so fascinates the safari-traveller.

What is most important in planning a Great Migration safari to Africa, is to understand the different stages of the migration, what time of the year is best for viewing these migratory herds and where within this vast ecosystem you should be located. Safari365 is a specialist at understanding these movements and have close long-term relationships with the camps and lodges in order to facilitate your ultimate safari (please see our related articles on when to see the African Migration and our migration date predictions)

It is also worth noting that visiting Africa's Serengeti and Masai Mara is a world-traveller bucket-list event, and if you are seriously considering it, planning your migration safari is best planned far in advance as suitable accommodation (located in the right areas at the right times of year) is pre-booked months ahead.

The Great Migration safaris listed below should give you a fair idea of what is possible. Ultimately though, we would like to customise a safari for you once we have an idea of your time of year to travel, level of luxury required and any other wishes that will truly make this the experience of a lifetime.
