The brand new HerdTracker app tracks the Great Migration through the Masai Mara and Serengeti in real time showing the precise location of the herds of 1.5 million animals, allowing wildlife enthusiasts to plan trips based on migration maps and week by week predictions. The tool allows travellers to judge weather, wildlife, migratory movements, predator interactions and river crossings, with the data compiled by pilots flying over the Masai Mara and Serengeti, on the ground guides and rangers, as well as from lodges in Kenya.
The best time to visit the Masai Mara is between mid July and late October when the Great Migration passes through. Each year, the Great Migration sees up to two million wildebeest and zebra undertake a journey of over 1,600 kilometres from the plains of the Serengeti to the grasslands of the Masai Mara.
Kicheche Camps, a group of small, privately owned luxury camps in Kenya’s Masai Mara and Laikipia conservancies, is currently gearing up to witness the spectacle. Guests can choose from the classic Bush Camp located in the Orare Orok Conservancy, to the intimate Mara Camp located in the Mara North Conservancy, Kicheche Laikipia in the shadows of Mount Kenya or the newest addition, Kicheche Valley with views as far as the eye can see.
