Let us experience it first hand as seen on National Geographic. The adventure of the lifetime. This happens every year between July to October, the animals will migrate from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara in search of food and water. However, for the animals to get to Masai Mara, they will have to cross the dangerous Mara River. That is filled with hundreds of crocodiles and fat pods of hippo waiting for them. The dramatic contrast between life and death to be witnessed during the Great Migration.

Set in rolling savannah scenery it is dwarfed by the presence of the pink-tinged, snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro which, at 5,896 meters, is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.

We have worked with the local operators to have 2 different accommodation packages: Budget and Mid-range (semi-luxury), while we still enjoy the same places of interests.


I hope the budget trip could give more people the chance to witness the great migration (like what we have seen in the documentary show in National Geographic). Hence, the accommodations and meals included in the itinerary are of the simple and basic standard.
