&Beyond Bateleur Camp Masai Mara

The Migration without the Crowds
Yes, you can view the greatest wildlife spectacle in the natural world without the company of over 160 vehicles. Over a million wildebeest and eight-hundred thousand zebra, the giant crocs never go hungry in the flow of survival of the fittest. You don’t have to be a wildlife biologist to want to witness what for most is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday.

A great experience can be had with andBeyond’s Bateleur Camp in the Mara Triangle who employs local guides. A mere five minute game drive from their private airstrip in the concession guests might just catch the gathering of thousands of wildebeest and zebra. Pictured here is a sighting of a crossing at the river where the only vehicle present was Bateleur’s.

I could not believe my eyes. I had just stepped off the plane and within minutes was witnessing the famous Great Migration. As the wildebeest scrambled up the slippery rock, I noticed solid ground on either side of where they were aiming. I asked my guide ‘Why don’t they go a few feet in either direction where the ground is easier?’ He answered ‘Oh, they are not very smart’.
