THE GREAT MIGRATION
The highlight of an African safari is witnessing the annual Serengeti migration, an ancient phenomenon that is the largest movement of wildlife on earth. Each year one million of wildebeests, zebras, Thomson’s gazelles and other animals migrate through the plains of Serengeti and the neighbouring Masai Mara (see map), following seasonally dictated variations of rains in search of grass and water.
The Camp is situated at Ikoma, just outside the park, right within this animal track. The big herds pass this area between May to August and November to January, allowing guests to be close to the migration during these months. Due to the camp’s central location all parts of the Serengeti are easily accessible. As the Serengeti hosts a great variety of residential wildlife a stay at Mapito Tented Camp is an experience throughout the year.
