Masai Mara Migration Safari - July to October

Trip Adventure Details


Masai Mara Migration Safari (July-October)

Early booking is always the secret of fulfilling migration safari in Masai Mara, Kenya. The amazing phenomenon attracts hundreds of visitors locally and internationally and facilities at maximum booking. Accommodation facilities close to the herds especially with a view from your tent are normally more expensive at the opportunity cost of driving to the action from another accommodation facility that offers all-round classic service. We cannot choose either for you, but will provide you with detailed comparison charts of the pros and cons of either.

It is regarded by many that the Mara River crossings are the most sensational and provide a more satisfactory experience of the migration as opposed to seeing the herds

Budget and mid-range facilities



During the great migration season July to October, we recommend 3 nights in Masai Mara to get most value. The wild is now populated with over 1.5m herbivores, The predators hunt, the vultures and the hyenas grapple for remains. The crocodiles are smiling at nature's largesse. You are there to watch all that and more. 3 Nights in the park means that you have ample time traversing this park known to be one of the worlds best for game spotting and more so, the melodramas that demand your attention at the Mara River crossing points.
