Overview of Our Wildebeest Safari

Our Wildebeest Migration Safari is one of the most popular and loved safari by our photographers and guests. Wildebeest Migrate from Southern Serengeti in Tanzania to Masai Mara in Kenya every year, day in day out. With amazing sightings being during their river crossing season, that’s from July to October. During this period, amazing scenes are sighted, from wildebeests jumping high river cliffs, and another unforgiving spotting of crocodiles eating on them. These are what we capture most, and showcase the drama that is the Wildebeest Crossings.

This safari only accommodates 18 guests maximum, in order to coordinate, plan and execute it perfectly. An exclusive privately guided safari, one of the best way to get amazing shots. Our safari camps are well selected, to offer nothing but optimum safari opportunities to get those incredible safari moments. They are located near the crossings points, where the wildebeest cross the main Mara River.

In order to archive our goals, we will ensure we do anything possible to bring that dream to reality. Our safari vehicles are convertible to photography vehicles and well designed to accommodate full photography positions. Guided by the most rated safari guides in Kenya, you are guaranteed nothing but amazing and beautiful moments of Photography.

This safari can be customized to accommodate non-photographers, who just want an experience of the Wildebeest Migration and Crossings in Masai Mara. It’s suitable for families, solo, couples, and groups too.
