Know before you go
  • The Great Wildebeest Migration is a spectacular Natural Phenomenon that happens in Masai Mara Game Reserve. By July, the countless herds have amassed along the swollen Mara River - a final barrier from the short sweet grasses of the Masai Mara. Sometimes the crossing place they have chosen is shallow allowing the majority of animals to pass safely. In other areas, the waters boil with drowning wildebeest and slashing crocodiles. Between July and October, the wildebeest reside in the Mara.

    We appreciate you so much for organizing a wonderful and truly enjoyable Kenya and Tanzania holiday. Although some sections of the trip at times seemed to be what I can describe lightning speed, the services of Camping tours and their drivers guides really helped us learn and experience a lifetime adventure. Everybody in our group was happy and we now understand Africa better. We appreciate the continent, her friendly people and the beautiful natural wildlife they are blessed with. Please feel free to contact us and use any of my comments. wambua made the trip just much more than what we had expected and I feel he is a real asset to the entire Camping tours and safaris company. If you consider doing a Portfolio of Photographs on your website or photo album, certainly have some more good images . Keep up the good work. I recommend.
