Experience the Migration
Discover the world and experience the migration for yourself in a part of Africa so iconic and so worth your while. Giving someone a chance to witness the amazing Great Migration in Tanzania and Kenya makes for the ultimate action-packed safari adventure combined with those priceless, peaceful moments overlooking the African savannah at the dawn of a fresh, new day. Get ready for a spectacle of over a million flocking wildebeest, zebras and antelope moving between the Serengeti/Masai Mara ecosystem in search of fresh grazing and water. Have your video cameras ready for wildebeest calves being born and follow as the herds gradually move from Tanzania to Kenya in a one-of-a-kind wildlife show where you can expect massive columns of moving animals mating, migrating and fighting for their life, all from the comfort of a game drive. But as Africa is about the whole package and expecting the unexpected, going on a migration safari is about taking it all in and savoring each sublime, unique moment and every outstanding animal you encounter. See it all from above with a hot-air balloon flight, savor a bush dinner, have savannah sunset cocktails or delight in a picnic on safari in the open savannah!

What to Do
Get a bird’s eye view of the savannah in a hot air balloon
An exhilarating hot air balloon ride over the vast Mara or Serengeti savanna is unforgettable. The journey offers a superb bird’s eye view of the wildlife on the plains below. The flight takes 45 to 60 minutes at varying altitudes. Your guests will enjoy a bit of bubbly followed by delicious breakfast (cooked using the balloon burners!) and served on the open savannah plains.
Enjoy a delectable picnic on the savannah
A great enhancement to the early morning game drive! After a successful morning drive the guide will stop at a special picnic spot to enjoy a relaxed breakfast. The chef will prepare a delectable meal out in the open while guests sit back, relax and enjoy the glorious views.
Enjoy dinner in the African bush under the stars
A lovely dinner under the stars is a wonderful part of your guests’ safari experience. These dinners usually consist of succulent meats, cooked on open fire, as well as other delectable side dishes (including dessert with tea and coffee). And no dinner would be complete without a Masai tribal dancing performance.
The ultimate safari experience – watch the Migration
During July through to October millions of wildebeest and other antelope migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the plains of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The endless plains dotted with wild animals are breathtaking; and don’t forget the spectacular river crossings where thousands of animals taking the harrowing journey across crocodile-infested rivers in an attempt to reach greener pastures. All this makes for an unforgettable East African safari experience!
Sip a cocktail as you glance over the savannah
Nothing beats a sundowner cocktail while staring out at the African savannah as the sun sets. The experience starts with an exciting afternoon game drive. The game drive will run into the early evening and guests will be surprised with a short stop in a scenic location for a relaxing sundowner drink in the bush.

Without the professional, timeous and effortless support from Zelda and her team this historical event would have been impossible and probably sub-standard. I can highly recommend them for your next event – be it big or small.
