The Great Migration in Kenya is an absolute must for any travel bucket list – and this year it’s arrived early.
July to November is generally regarded as the best time to view the Great Migration but it has already been sighted in the Maasai Mara this year. Up to two million animals take the 1,600km journey through Tanzania to Kenya each year, and the front of the herd has already crossed the Kenyan border.
Those looking for a ringside view in the Maasai Mara can head to Richard Branson’s luxury tented safari camp, Mahali Mzuri, located in Kenya’s Olare Motorogi Conservancy.
Virgin Limited Edition is offering a free night on all bookings of four nights or more, giving guests a four-night stay for the price of three during the awe-inspiring migration period. This offer runs all the way through to December and can be combined with their kids-go-free offer, making it a perfect family holiday experience.
Mahali Mzuri is the perfect location to see the millions of wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelles and other game that will be on the move during migration season. Guests will also have the chance to spot lions, hyenas, leopards and lots of other wildlife. And during migration season, guests at Mahali Mzuri also receive a complimentary day pass to the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
With twice-daily game drives led by expert guides and 12 luxurious tented suites that look out onto some of the world’s most stunning scenery, Mahali Mzuri offers a truly intimate experience amidst an astonishing natural spectacle.
