On paper, the Great Migration is a numbers game. There are some 1.5 million wildebeest alone, and on top of them you’ll see vast herds of zebra, giraffe, and antelope all on the move. But even knowing the figures cannot prepare you for the actual sight: the Great Migration is, with no exaggeration, the single greatest wildlife spectacle on earth.
All of the Journeysmiths’ team have their own favourite spots for witnessing this epic journey, whether from a well situated permanent lodge, or from a mobile camp. There’s no one right option, but as we get to know your interests and preferred comfort levels, we can suggest something we believe will be spot on.
Bateleur Camp overlooks the plains of Masai Mara and is directly in the path of the Great Migration. Guests can fully appreciate the romance of a Kenyan safari with vintage-style tents and the chance to wander through the original film set of Out of Africa. You won’t forget the bush walks, the spot-lit night time game drives, or your interactions with the local Maasai community.
