Soon the 2024 annual Great Migration season in Kenya will start. Therefore there is no better time to start planning your 2025 Great Migration Safaris. This year’s migration is set to be the busiest since the 2020 global pandemic that dealt a blow to our local tourism industry. Most camps and lodges in the Masai Mara are already fully booked with sparse availability for a few rooms.

Although it might seem early to start planning for 2025 but this is the best time if you would like to have a wide variety of choices in camps and lodges. Preparing early will give you the advantage of considering a variety of locations to stay and can even offer you early bird discounts.

In the coming weeks most leading camps and lodges will be publishing their 2025 rates. We are already working on quotes for independent travellers and groups for 2025 Great Migration Safaris season.

When is the right time for 2025 Great Migration Safaris?

The Great Migration is an annual event that is actually a year-round spectacle. Around 1.2 Million Wildebeest and 300,000 Zebra move in a constant 800 Km (500 Miles) cycle around Kenya and Tanzania. The real show starts in July, the animals begin crossing the Mara River from the Northern Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya. The best time to see the crossings in Kenya is usually in August, September and October.
