What to Expect
The destination Maasai Mara is set at an altitude of 1650m (5210 ft) with the rolling grasslands and one nature's most dramatic spectacles, the annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra from Tanzania's Serengeti which takes place from late July to September.

Here the great herds of immense shuffling elephants, browse among the rich, tree studded grasslands with an occasional sighting of the solitary and ill-tempered rhino.
