Customizable Itinerary

This is a sample itinerary to inspire a personalized trip designed with your travel specialist

Countries Visited

Kenya, Tanzania

Places Visited

Masai Mara, Serengeti

Suggested Duration

9 Days

The iconic Mara River divides the grasslands to separate the Masai Mara from the Serengeti. From June to October, both sides of the river teem with wildlife as the resident mammals are joined by the marauding millions of the great wildebeest migration. Such abundance creates Africa's greatest wildlife spectacle and the signature cycle of predator and prey. Much like the ungulates, this 9-day safari intimately explores both sides of the Mara and East Africa's flagship experience.

Trip Highlights

  • Trace the wonders of the great wildebeest migration as you explore both sides of the Mara River, the Masai Mara, and northern Serengeti
  • Watch massive herds of wildebeest rumble across the crocodile-infested Mara River, one of Africa's most iconic sights
  • Hot air balloon above the Masai Mara and gaze down on the patchwork of grass and grazers to admire the patterns of the migration from the air
  • Surround yourself with zebra, wildebeest and Thomson's gazelle as hundreds of thousands of the ungulates reveal the scale and exquisite detail of the region
  • Follow the big cats on their stealthy journeys and discover an astonishing abundance of different predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, jackal, vulture, and more
  • Explore the private Mara North Conservancy and find a version of the great wildebeest migration that is inaccessible to other tourists
  • Enjoy two of East Africa's finest safari accommodations, with a private cottage and a luxurious tented suite
