The Great Migration Fly-in Safari

This 8-day private safari is designed to get you as close to the Great Migration as possible, from both the Kenyan and Tanzanian sides of the border! Starting in the Mara, you’ll stay at the classic Bateleur Camp, before flying south to the Serengeti for 2 nights bush camping at the fabulous Serengeti Under Canvas, a luxury mobile camp that moves in conjunction with the migratory herds. A 2-night stay on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater follows.
