Encounter Vast Herds
 
The Masai Mara is a thrilling place for a safari at any time of year. But from July to October the resident wildlife and waiting cats are joined by over a million migrating wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. It’s a pretty popular time for tourists too so it’s really important that your family enjoys the relative privacy of an exclusive private reserve. Over thirty years as safari specialists we know the best ways for your family to make the most of seeing the Great Migration.

Great herds cover the rolling Mara plains. A lion pride purposefully positions itself among the taller grasses. Eagles soar above and a magnificent male antelope stands watching as sentry and flicks his tail. The tension crackles and the amazing thing is that the animals seem oblivious to the presence of your vehicle – the lions might even use it as cover.

It just isn’t the same if there are thirty minibuses gathered around! We are unashamedly exclusivist when it comes to safaris in the Mara. For one thing, we never use minibuses and we only arrange stays on the best private reserves where there might be just one of two small luxury lodges. On these reserves your family can enjoy exciting safaris in open vehicles and on short walks with the best guides. The Masai Mara is a complex ecosystem and while the Great Migration grabs the headlines and you’ll want to experience it - there is much more to see and do.

Ask your guide to explain how he uses bushcraft to track down a leopard or a family of cheetah. Then enjoy the excitement of finding them as you encounter giraffe, hyena and all kinds of animals along the way. Then, a wonderful moment as you spot the head of a female cheetah in the grass! There’s no agenda and your family might spend the next half hour simply enjoying the moment as they move about and interact. Invest some time taking photographs to edit back at the lodge. One might find pride of place in your lounge recalling a moment of a special family holiday.
