Starting almost a month early in mid-June, the 2017 Great Migration is very much upon us and the Masai Mara is bursting alive with gnu, zebra and other plains game on their annual journey. During this exciting period, guests at Saruni Mara and Saruni Wild are treated to fascinating, close-up, wildlife-rich game drives right on their doorstep, driving across horizons dotted with noisy animals on a mission!

Check out this video of a river crossing from early June, thanks to longtime Saruni friend, Eunice Yi Ying.
