Inquire Booking

Experience one of the natural wonders of the world - the Great Wildebeest Migration! Three night fly-in safari with optional Hot Air Balloon safari over the migrating animals.

After the rains when the first flush of grass turns the Masai Mara’s golden savannah green, the most mesmerising wildlife spectacle anywhere takes place here: The Great Wildebeest Migration.

Between the months of July and October one and a half million wildebeest, accompanied by vast numbers of zebra and gazelles make the long and dangerous trek from drier lands in Tanzania, northwards to this corner of Kenya. Lines of animals stretch as far as the eye can see across the plains. It is a time of plenty. But it is a time too when the predators are drawn from all around. High above on the hot winds the carrion birds, the vultures and eagles, soar. In the long grasses lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena prowl. Most dramatic of all is the moment when the migration arrives at the Mara River. They must cross it to reach the rich grazing. As the animals throng, crocodiles cruise the waters. Then the bravest takes the plunge into the swirling currents and thousands follow.

Governors’ Camps are ideally placed to let you to be at the heart of the Great Wildebeest Migration.The setting is magical. Governors’ Camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River in the west of the Masai Mara, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Some of the tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest they enjoy uninterrupted views over the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets.
