Travel Splurge :: The Great Migration

[trip style = active + adventure + glamping + luxury]

I recently wrote an article in the Expedia Viewfinder about one of USA Today's New Seven Wonders of the World: The Great Migration from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara, a time of year {July to October} when stadium-sized masses of zebra and wildebeest roam close to 1,800 miles from Tanzania to Kenya in search of water and lush grazing ground.


Standing in my safari lodge's Land Cruiser in the midday African heat watching The Great Migration take place {tail end of the river crossing pictured above} was easily one of my top five travel-wow moments. And while getting to and from Africa is a trek, it's SO worth putting "African Safari" on your once-in-a-lifetime, dream-trip list. 

See my first-hand account of viewing the Migration, getting {almost} intimate with a baboon and glamping beside the Mara River, here


PS: The above photos were snapped with my point-and-shoot Sony camera. I wish I'd splurged for the occasion and brought a fancy camera.
