**Itinerary is always subject to change**

Notes: The path of the Migration is dictated by rain – if rain is late, early or falls in different areas, the wildebeest will move accordingly. Migration into the Maasai Mara runs from July to October. Also note that river crossings do not occur instantly on arrival at the water’s edge. The herd may wait on the shore for a few days before crossing. We do have 4 nights in our game reserve and a total of 8 drives.
