Great Migration explained

The latest in the World Journeys series of ‘armchair training’ topics is the phenomena of the Great Migration of wildlife across the plains of East Africa.  

Director Ange Pirie says the company is trying to keep the inspiration levels up, and keep travel dreams alive.

‘The highlight of any East African safari, the Great Migration sees thousands of wildebeest and zebra move in vast herds through the Serengeti and Masai Mara in a quest for fresh pastures,’ she says. ‘It’s an incredible phenomena to witness, but you need to be in the right place at the right time, especially if you want to witness the drama of a river crossing. We explain how it all works, the best way to experience it, and where to stay.’
