When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebras swings north it encounters the fabled Mara River – and pandemonium begins. Huge collections of wildebeest and zebras gather on the edges of the river, then suddenly plunge in a chaotic crossing. Crocodiles lie waiting, eager for their annual feast!
This is a photographic Holy Grail, but it can also be a nightmare if you are on a poorly planned safari that didn’t allow enough time for the zebras and wildebeest to gather courage to cross.
We have designed a safari focused on getting you to the crossing and keeping you in range to maximize your opportunities to make those heart stopping images. And, when the action has paused, we have great opportunities for a full range of predators and prey nearby!
Along the way to the crossing we have incorporated excellent opportunities in Tarangire National Park (elephants and baobab trees), the Ngorongoro Crater (a giant fishbowl filled with African species) and the Central Serengeti (lions, leopards and cheetahs).
This is the safari we would build for us to photograph the crossing. We will be there capturing images alongside you, but our first priority will be all about you getting great images. Join us!
