The Great Migration 2019

Witness the most dramatic spectacle on the planet, the Great Migration, play out right before your very eyes.
Join us for an unparalleled week in Kenya, witnessing a 2-million-strong herd of wildebeest, thunder across the savannah and chase the rains in a race for life called the Great Migration.

Every day is action-packed, as you drive through plains full of animals as far as you can see, and watch with baited breath as herds of wildebeest, zebra, antelope and gazelle gallop alongside you, cross swollen rivers, and encounter, escape or fall prey to Serengeti lions, monster crocs and other predators of the wild.

This trip is operated by Shian Tours & Travel, a well-established tour operator and destination management company.

Over 50+ departures per destination based on multiples dates, budgets, # of days and more. Tell us when you want to go and we'll figure out what works best for you.
