Migration safaris

Millions of animals migrate across Northern Tanzania and Kenya each year in one of nature's greatest spectacles—the Great Wildebeest Migration. As this event is largely weather dependent, timing your arrival is key. You will need to be in a certain place at a certain time, depending on whether you want to see dramatic river crossings, predator action or animals with their young calves.

Our partner safari lodges in the Masai Mara and Serengeti reserves offer luxurious accommodation near the Great Migration hotspots. But to stay as close as possible to the action as it unfolds, we recommend opting for our mobile camps, which change locations seasonally to ensure you're always close to the herds, wherever they may be. While the Great Migration gets most of the spotlight, less talked about are some of the other incredible animal migrations that occur across Africa. Here are just a couple well worth checking out.

Liuwa Plain Wildebeest Migration

In Zambia's dry season, 40 000 wildebeest head north to greener pastures in Liuwa Plain National Park before returning with the start of the summer rains. While the migrating herds are smaller than in East Africa, its serene setting is wonderfully remote and has fewer visitors around.

Makgadikgadi Zebra Migration

When the summer rains turn the bone-dry Makgadikgadi Pan into a verdant grazing feast, about 25 000 zebras arrive from Botswana's Okavango Delta. Only roughly half the zebras migrate each year, and scientists still aren't sure why the rest choose to stay.
