Forever immortalised in films such as "The Lion King", the Great Migration is Mother Nature's greatest wildlife show on earth. On our Great Migration tour ideas, you can marvel at millions of wildebeest, zebras and antelopes traversing through the vast savannah plains of East Africa's Serengeti and Maasai Mara. It's a spectacle like none other and a must-see for die-hard safari lovers!

As the best in the African safari biz, we've travelled far and wide across our continent to test everything (tough job, we know!) so that you only experience the very best. If it did not meet our (high) expectations, then it just won't do for our valued guests like yourself! Furthermore, you don't have to choose a tour from a set menu. Instead, you get to pick and choose, and our Travel Experts will recommend the best experiences based on your needs and tastes.
