Luxury Serengeti Migration Safari
“Those of us, resident guides who live and work in East Africa, have a completely different experience of the Migration season: lush green landscapes, refreshing afternoon storms that cool off the heat of the day, absolute clarity – being able to see for miles and miles across the Serengeti, revitalised active wildlife, few guests, and... pretty much the perfect time of the year to go on safari.”

What sets the Guided Safaris® experience apart

Guided Safaris Signature Migration Safari

ABSOLUTE PRIVATE & CROWD-FREE EXPERIENCE

No Crowded Public Parks; No Touristy Areas. Experience our Private Game Reserves set within the richest concentrations of varied wildlife species for an exceptional game viewing experience to rival anywhere in East Africa. Major filmmakers and photographers journey under our expertise to capture these idyllic realities.

LUXURY TRAVEL DESIGNED AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE

No ‘Group Travel’. We don’t do “pre-packaged, set-date safaris” with 20 persons and a khaki-clad chaperone. It’s simply not chic; We’re in complete agreement with 21st century travelers that adventure travel has evolved alongside personal preferences. We offer fully-customized, independent, bespoke safaris designed just for you. Your privacy is key to our luxury safari experiences. We offer unmatched savoir faire in tailoring private journeys and adventures to Africa for over 25 years.

SMARTER TRAVEL OPTIONS

Don’t rough it. You’ve spent considerable time and effort planning your escape to Africa. The last thing you want to worry about are logistics and whether your time and investment are being efficiently put to play. Avoid the bumpy roads typical of standard corner cutting tour packages from operators: Our Guided Safaris® on-ground team welcome you at the international airports in Africa and fly you on the most reputable safari carriers to our lodge airstrips rather than have you drag along dusty, unattractive routes and border crossings for hours on end wasting a precious day getting from one location to another and adding unnecessary hardship to your journey. And — we’re still more competitively priced with our custom offerings.

REAL KNOWLEDGE ON MIGRATION SEASONALITY

Don't rely on outdated guide books. With Guided Safaris® you have access to true, on-ground knowledge from our resident head guides to position you in the optimal seasons for the Great Migration, changing based on annual updates as they happen on actual location.

THE FINEST GUIDES IN EAST AFRICA

Real Professional Safari Guides. We work with some of the finest rangers in East Africa, trained at our Private Ranger Academy with resident ecology and field experience, along with the finest trackers to lead your game drives. No need for ‘Specialist Guides’ who fly in from the cities and have no localized understanding of current game patterns in each location.

A TRUE PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE

Game drives in professional safari cruisers. No silly Pop-up-roof Minivans or stuffy ‘watch from the roof’ trucks built in the 80's. Enjoy photography in custom-built 4x4 vehicles with comfy bucket seats and unobtrusive windowless frames for uninterrupted, clutter-free game viewing. It’s the classier, modern approach and a far better way to view and photograph animals.

TRAVEL WITH A PURPOSE

Our eco-luxury concept is also the greener way to travel. Founded upon luxury safaris and high-end wilderness adventures that support conservation and sustainability, Guided Safaris® has garnered global recognition in the stewardship of Africa’s most extraordinary ecological hotspots and exclusive travel finds. We are eager for every guest to return home from their journey with both the immense satisfaction of having witnessed the grand scale of the Great Migration experience and found themselves a part of it, at least once in their lifetime, as well as the fulfillment of having contributed to its safe guarding and preservation for future generations through their visit. With each journey, we help outline the considerable direct effort at work within each region. Our journeys help support and work hand-in-hand with leading organizations such as Save The Rhino International, Big Life Africa, David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and many more for the continued safeguarding of our endangered Lion, Elephant and Black Rhino populations.
