Where to stay in Kenya to see the Great Migration from July to November
The Great Migration passes through the Greater Masai Mara region of southern Kenya from approximately July to November.
The renowned Masai Mara National Reserve does not require an introduction. Its 1,500km2 are densely inhabited with wildlife throughout the year, but especially between mid-June and November, when vast herds of migrating wildebeest appear in search of greener grazing grounds.
At this point in the migration route, the wildebeest courageously cross the Mara River, which is teeming with ravenous crocodiles and makes for tense viewing. In the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, guests of Rekero can observe wildebeest traversing the Grumeti river in front of camp. Naboisho Camp and Encounter Mara, located in the neighboring Naboisho Conservancy, provide additional superb lodging options.
Where to stay in Tanzania to see the Great Migration from November to July
When the Great Migration is in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, it traverses a larger area than when it is in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Guests have the option of lodging in permanent camps or in our mobile migration camps, which relocate throughout the year to remain near the action.
