It is one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet; the greatest show on earth playing out across the vast plains and rolling hills of the Serengeti National Park. Every year, led by the life-giving rains that feed the lush savannahs, 1.5 million wildebeest make a circular journey, rivers of black pouring across from Tanzania’s southern Serengeti to Kenya’s Masaai Mara and back again. Some 400,000 zebra and 200,000 gazelles accompany them along the way, making a total of over two million migrating animals thundering as one.
To witness one of nature’s greatest spectacles is indescribable. The deafening roar of thundering hooves and bellowing voices, the smells of dust and musky animals, the sight of so many beasts coming together as one to follow their instincts is staggering. But where is the best place to see it? And when should you go?
A Front Row Seat
At the height of the migration, the banks of the crocodile-infested rivers become the focal point for visitors, the animals funnelling through in staggering numbers. Yet the migration is only as predictable as the rains, and knowing the moment that will happen is nature’s guess. To witness it takes luck and patience, but the rewards are infinite.
A Year Round Migration
The great stampede is not a single event however, and all year round the animals pass through different lands and phases on their cycle of life. Luxury Bound can transport you beyond the throngs to witness the animals as they prepare to chase the thundering rains, and to hear them roaring as they take charge on their epic annual journey. On the green, nutrient-rich grasslands of the Southern Serengeti, wildebeest babies are born in their thousands, their spindly legs and vulnerability drawing in predators in staggering numbers. It is a chance to see nature in wild, uncrowded action, to see the real circle of life, and to get a deeper understanding of the Great Migration before it unfurls.
A Personal Journey
Whether your heart longs to witness the black ribbons of animals coursing across the plains, or to take a precious moment to see the migration in a different phase of its cycle, Luxury Bound will transport you on a journey of fulfilment and wonder. Culture, wildlife and history are entwined in East Africa, and escaping the crowds and seeing it in its raw, wild and naked truth is our pledge to you.
