The Great Migration
Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
17th - 23rd Sept & 24th - 30th Sept '12
The Great Migration is probably Africa's greatest wildlife spectacle and one of the world's most exceptional natural phenomena. The dizzying immensity of the event is overwhelming even to the imagination, which includes millions of Wildebeest and thousands of Zebras, Thomson’s Gazelles, and Elands, that join the already fledging populace of herbivores.
Jump on luxury safari vehicles with a pop-up roof for game viewing and witness the spectacle that unfolds with visits to the Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park, and the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Gaze upon a sea of flaming pink as millions of flamingos seek their food in the salty deep green waters of Lake Nakuru, which also hosts hundreds of species including cormorants and pelicans. Meet the colourful Masai people known for their distinctive customs and dressing, and explore the grassy terrain and riverine forests clumped with acacia trees that offer a thrilling aspect of the Migration; animals crossing the Mara River where crocodiles await and stalk. Finally, get up close with The Big Five: lions, African elephants, Cape buffalos, leopards, and rhinoceros.
This quest indulges the senses in more ways than one taking its passengers through glorious scenes of the amazing African Savannah race.
