Safari Enquiry

The migration begins to spill over into the Masai Mara as the wildebeest continue to cross the Mara River in the Serengeti. 

Visitors and vehicle numbers are at their peak at this time of year, but this is due to the high density of predators in the area, as well as the frequent occurrences of predator-prey interactions, which make this a very popular time of year for a Kenya Safari.

August is the busiest month for gorilla treks in Rwanda. The foliage has completely disappeared, and the primates are running low on food. Photographic opportunities are at their greatest when the foliage is this thin.
