10 Days Migration Cross Over

This experience is meant to be an absolute delight for wildlife lovers. The high drama of a river crossing at the Mara River is arguably the highlight of the Wildebeests Migration, a stunning life-and-death display as hundreds of thousands of Wildebeests braves the treacherous currents and lurking Crocodiles in a last ditch attempt to reach the safety of the Maasai Mara in Kenya or back into the Serengeti.
Our ten days river crossing safari takes you into the northern Serengeti and offers the best chance of seeing death-defying leaps and heart-wrenching near misses as you spend multiple nights and days in the world-famous Serengeti National Park.
