8 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari Adventures is a perfect safari for a guest who wants to experience the beauty and drama of the migration in elegance and style. The Maasai Mara National Reserve is considered to be the seventh natural wonder of the world where the migration happens every year between JULY and OCTOBER. During this great migration, over 2 million wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles trek from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania right through the reserve in search of water and pasture.
This 8 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari Adventures itinerary combines the unfolding drama of the wildebeest migration on the majestic plains of the Masai Mara with various safari activities such as balloon safari and the Masai village visit.
Visiting Maasai Mara during the Migration Season is the ultimate way of experiencing the last multi-species migration on the planet. During this period, the iconic plains of the Mara transform to a migration route providing you with an opportunity to see more than a million wildebeest, zebras, and antelopes grazing across the rolling plains of the epic Maasai Mara and Serengeti Parks.
We depart Nairobi in the morning and drive to Aberdare National Park or Mt. Kenya National Park arriving in time for lunch. After lunch and high tea, set off for the Ark tree lodge, located in the forest on mountain slopes of the Aberdare Mountains at 7,000 feet. This outstanding lodge offers high altitude game viewing, including animals that are rarely encountered elsewhere: giant forest hog, bush pig, tree hyrax, large spotted Genet, and the elusive bongo. Wildlife can be observed from different levels – and from outside where you can see, hear and smell everything and inside where you can sit with a cup of tea and stay warm and cozy.
