13-29 June 2020

Join us for a trip of a LIFETIME to Africa to see what we call the Great Great Migration 

Nature’s oldest pilgrimage plays out on the endless plains of the Serengeti National Park and the Maasai Mara National Reserve, as over a million wildebeest along with gazelle and zebra stragglers charge towards better grazing areas. This is the stage on which the 'greatest wildlife show on earth' plays out, as it is by far the greatest mass movement of land mammals on the entire globe.  The Great Migration has been listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.. Not only does it offer incredible views of the plains dotted with huge herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle, but the rivers are often infested with large Nile crocodiles lying in wait. Some of the best safari opportunities in the world are found here, across a landscape made up of volcanic grasslands and vast plains interrupted by rocky outcrops, rivers, and forests. 

The sardine wildlife ‘migration’ is actually still relatively mysterious, although there are, of course, theories.  This is an event for everyone to enjoy - be it bird watchers, marine-life enthusiasts, amateur or highly experienced divers or snorkellers. Experience the Sardine Run beneath the waves or above. Either way it has been described as one of the greatest marine spectacles on earth.
