3 Epic safaris to do before you kick the bucket

Not all safaris are born equal. Some are so special by the very nature of what they offer, that even our seasoned team here at Africa Geographic keep them in their personal ‘must-do’ lists. Some refer to them as ‘bucket-list’ safaris; we simply suggest that you really should consider embarking on these journeys before you kick the bucket (list).

Butterflies of the Maasai Mara

The rolling savanna grass plains of the Maasai Mara may not automatically spring to mind as a hotspot for butterfly diversity; yet lepidopterists and amateur butterfly lovers alike are in for a treat when they stay at one of the Governors’ Camp Collection properties.

An encounter with a serval and her kitten

The stories of Maasai Mara are not simply woven around the Big 5, but of coming up close and personal with never-before-seen experiences. It is about simply marvelling at the effortless way a million stories bursts into life in that single frame.

The advantages of choosing a shorter safari

The Great Migration: Africa’s most glorious spectacle

Every true adventurer should witness the spectacle of the Great Migration at least once in their lifetime. The sheer scale of the herd’s movements make it an unbeatable natural phenomenon – and although there’s a traditional high season, the migration never really stops as the as the mega herds keep moving in pursuit of rain and grass.
