The Great Wildebeest Migration is often described as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Natural World” and has been the subject of many a stirring TV program or film. Join me Bob Brind-Surch to experience and, under my expert guidance, photograph this for yourself.
Nowhere else on land is there a movement of animals as immense, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Masai Mara in Kenya during July through to October.This is an annual wildlife spectacular not to be missed! Each year 1.5 million Wildebeest and 300,000 Zebra make their long trek from the Serengeti north to the Masai Mara. At one point the migration has to cross the mighty Mara River and its tributaries where crocodiles and other predators wait to feast on those unlucky enough to get caught. Those that manage to cross will then be hunted, stalked, and run down by the larger carnivores of which the area is famous.
The Masai Mara has one of the largest densities of lion and other large cats in the world and is without a doubt Africa’s most famous safari destination. The sheer numbers of prey species at this time of year bring out every kind of behavior in the cats and often some spectacular action can be seen.
Each trip will be limited to a maximum of 8 people and is often less. We’ll be staying at Kicheche Bush Camp which is a bit nearer the “action” than some. This is a small private and extremely comfortable camp ideally located to offer the very best game viewing opportunities. With just six tents they can provide a truly individual and tailored approach to our safari whilst enjoying a true wilderness experience in extreme comfort.
In addition to providing great photographic opportunities, this tour has been carefully designed to offer a wide appreciation of the natural beauty of Africa’s wildlife, people and the environment. The itinerary is constructed to give the maximum time in the field in order to provide you with unrivalled experiences and the very best photographic opportunities. I am always on hand to provide ad-hoc photographic tuition and assistance if required. My aim is simple, to ensure you have a highly enjoyable holiday where you can concentrate on your photography with truly unique opportunities to view and capture images of the natural world. All this whilst soaking up the very best wilderness experience in a comfortable and magic environment.
