Feel the raw life in Kenya


Kenya's Great Migration, which takes place from July to September each year, is a migration season in which more than two million animals, including hornbills, wild zebras and gazelles, migrate from Tanzania to the Masai Mara. Millions of hornbills are the mainstay of the migration, and it is a spectacular sight to see the vast number of animals crossing the border. If you are lucky, you may even see elephants and meerkats migrating. The best place to watch this migration is along the Mara River, where millions of animals compete to cross the river, followed by various carnivorous beasts, in a game of life and death, known as the Masai Mara "River Crossing".


There are two ways to watch the great animal migration. The first is by car. Driving to watch the animal migration is not only cost-effective, but you can always change direction as the animals move forward. After you stay in a local hotel you will find many local hotels will be equipped with Safari safaris, this way will be relatively convenient and more economical. If you are staying at a hotel inside the park, this program is standard and free of charge. If you are staying at a hotel outside the park, you only need to pay about $80 for the park entrance fee. There is no fixed route for this kind of safari, it all depends on experienced drivers and guides to lead the way, and lions and leopards and other beasts may be found on the way of safari. Another popular way to watch the migration season is to take a hot air balloon ride overhead. 


This is a much wider and more comprehensive view, and you can see millions of animals at once while sitting up there. If you choose to come to Kenya to photograph the Great Migration, this is certainly a great option. To book a hot air balloon for the Great Migration season, you need to book with a balloon company or you can purchase the goods directly from a travel agency, which is very convenient. However, this option is relatively expensive. The price is around 350$ per hour and even 500$ per hour during the peak season.

The main difference between the off-season and peak season in Marseille is the number of animals, in the off-season, there are many different kinds of animals here, and you can see anything you want. In the off-season, it is more economical and convenient to book a local hotel. If you are in the mood, you can also visit the local Maasai villagers, where tourists can dance with them and buy some local handmade beads as souvenirs. The Maasai Mara to eat a wilderness dinner is a super romantic thing: sunset, back from the safari, the hotel has put the table outside, a white tablecloth, delicate tableware, and then lit a tall candlestick, the evening wind on the grassland is very light, candle flame also gently swaying, this time and love slowly enjoy a dinner, enjoy the sunset on the savannah, this is a very romantic experience.
