There are few things in life more breath-taking than seeing wild animals in their natural habitat; imagine seeing thousands upon thousands travelling en masse, right in front of your eyes.
Enter, the Great Migration, currently in full swing in the Maasai Mara, where guests staying at the award-winning Mahali Mzuri are currently experiencing this spectacular sighting on their daily game drives.
Between June and September each year, guests are invited to secure front row seats to witness Kenya’s annual great migration while staying at Sir Richard Branson’s luxury tented camp in the Maasai Mara, Mahali Mzuri.
Described as the eighth wonder of the world, the annual spectacle sees up to one million wildebeest plus hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelles and other game undertake a journey of roughly 1,600km through Tanzania and Kenya, crossing the Mara river.
Guests are guaranteed to feel fully immersed in the magic of Kenya from the moment they arrive at Sir Richard Branson’s famed camp.
Mahali Mzuri’s 12-tented luxury safari camp occupies a prestigious location in the northern region of Kenya’s Maasai Mara ecosystem and offers exceptional game viewing all year round, with highly skilled and trained guides leading the way.
When not basking in panoramic views or out adventuring on game drives, guests can enjoy a plethora of ways to relax and unwind back at camp; whether by taking a dip in the camp’s stunning 12 metre outdoor infinity pool, booking a treatment in the spa or venturing out into the community to immerse themselves in local life in a traditional Maasai village.
During migration season, guests staying three or more nights at Mahali Mzuri are also treated to one complimentary day pass per adult to the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
