The “Great Migration”! Those two little words jump like gazelles when you think of an adventure in Kenya. In fact, they are exactly the gazelles, which together with thousands of zebras and wildebeests, give the greatest show of wildlife on the face of the Earth. This annual migration takes place from the Serengeti (Tanzania) to the Masai Mara National Reserve (Kenya), when the animals make a pilgrimage of almost 2,000 kilometers in search of water and food, from July to October.
To live this dream in style and watch the unbelievable annual migration, nothing better than to be in a place whose name means “beautiful place,” which was born out of the passion of mega entrepreneur Richard Branson for Africa, to help protect both the local community and wildlife. This is Mahali Mzuri, a super exclusive campsite of the Virgin Limited Edition group, with only 12 luxury tents, with private deck. The camp is located in an extensive conservation area, next to a valley, where you will witness the spectacle of wildlife in the Kenyan plains. And the good news is that the country has been open to visitors since the beginning of August.
Twice a day, Mahali Mzuri offers game drives with the chance to see many animals. Kenya is home to the Big Five: elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhinoceros and lion. It is one of the best places in the world to watch cats. Moreover, it is to relax in the peace of the camp and visit the maasai villages of the region. Mahali Mzuri is totally connected to the community and 100% sustainable. One of those perfect places to live an unforgettable experience.
Once in Kenya, it is worth visiting the capital Nairobi which is 240 km from Mahali Mzuri, visit the Ol Pejeta animal life preservation reserve to see the few white rhinos that still exist in the world and enjoy a turquoise blue on the beaches of the island of Lamu, the new and untouched African hotspot. If you have more time, go to the beautiful neighbors Tanzania, Rwanda and Ethiopia.
I bet you’ll sleep tonight dreaming about the “Great Migration”! Take a look at the tables with special prices of Mahali Mzuri in this period of resumption. It is a good opportunity to make an incredible trip, helping the communities of the region and helping to maintain the local ecosystem.
XoXo and see you next week.
