Wildebeest Migration Mobile Camp Safari

Over 2 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelles are part of this spectacular annual migration through the Serengeti (Tanzania) and Masai Mara (Kenya). As much as this wonder of the natural world is beautiful and serene to witness, it is equally frantic and unpredictable, which is why a mobile safari excursion is preferred by some visitors. Tracking the migration’s every move from specialised mobile camps which follow the herd, offers a unique opportunity to spend a few days at the very centre of one of nature’s most breathtaking experiences.
