Masai Mara: Recommended camps for the migration

The migration is in full swing with over 2 million wildebeest, zebra and Thomson's gazelle spread across the Masai Mara and northern Serengeti! Any camp in this region will offer excellent game viewing. Depending on your budget and preferences, the Masai Mara has a wide variety of camps and lodges.

Sunsafaris specialise in tailor made safaris to Kenya and Tanzania. We recommend small personalised safari camps which we feel offer a superior safari experience.

For this time of year, we recommend:
Porini Lion Camp: A small tented camp in the Olare Orok Conservancy bordering the Masai Mara. They currently have resident cheetah and offer exclusive access to the conservancy, away from the large crowds. It is a bit of a drive to the Mara River, so we recommend that you split your time between this camp and a camp closer to the Mara River.
Little Governor's Camp: Little Governor's Camp is located along the Mara River and an excellent location to be based to see the wildebeest crossing the Mara River.
Karen Blixen Camp: Karen Blixen Camp is set on the bank of the Mara River in a private concession of land leased from a Masai landlord.
