Top Tips from our Experts

Taylor

Destination Executive

“The view of the Masai Mara from 60 metres above in a hot air balloon brought a tear to my eye. Stay at the Little Governors Safari Camp and book your hot air balloon trip. Elephants grazing, giraffes eating, followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush. Something I will remember forever.”

George

Destination Specialist

“When going on safari remember to take an extension cable, that way you can charge your phone, camera, IPad and any other electrical items overnight at the same time. Nothing worse than running out of battery in your camera just when you spot one of The Big 5.”

Barbara

Destination Specialist

“On safari, make sure everyone has their own pair of binoculars -- it really is a necessity!”

Frequently Asked Questions

The Great Migration generally begins around June when herds of wildebeest, zebra and impalas begin their migration from the Serengeti into the Masai Mara. You are most likely to witness the famed Mara River crossing from late July to October. However, the exact timings depend on when the rains arrive in Tanzania.

The Serengeti National Park is approximately 130 miles long from north to south, excluding the concession areas and private game reserves that surround the park. 

The type of plug used on the African continent varies between countries. For example, in some former British colonies such as Kenya, they may use the British plug Type G, while countries such as South Africa use plug Types C, D, M and N.
