Mark Thornton Safaris is part of a small team which has come together to offer the finest Serengeti migration experience. A true East African Tented Camp which follows the migratory herds of wildebeest. Camp is carefully positioned in the finest locations in the Serengeti which offer the best access to the herds and which are also secluded from the main tourism zones.
For this dry season period, camp is positioned in the magical Lamai Wedge of northwestern Serengeti near the Mara River, offering superb chances to catch the herds crossing the river, full of hippos and 18 foot crocs. It is a breathtaking area and we tuck camp away in its most secluded corners. During this time of year, we have the ideal location for the wildebeest migration.
During this beautiful time of year, camp moves into the legendary short-grass plains of the Serengeti. This provides the quintessential Serengeti vistas of endless plains dotted with wildebeest. Cheetah and other cats abound and during February one may witness the wildebeest calving en masse on the plains.
