Why you should join us on this wildebeest migration safari

June is traditionally marks the start of the Grumeti River crossings, as the herds risk it all to continue their trek to the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. 

The Grumeti River is home to some of the world's biggest Nile crocodiles. These crocodiles are infrequent eaters and wait for the migration river crossings to provide them with food.
