- Simple but comfortable
- In the Mara Reserve
- Excellent Location
- Sensibly Priced
Only available during the Wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara (mid July – October). This temporary Camp is set up within the Masai Mara Reserve itself to offer easier access to the River Crossing points and prime wildlife viewing areas during the migration season.
Each tent is furnished with 2 firm beds, bedding and is equipped with camp furniture (bedside stools, wash hand stand, veranda table and seats). Each tent comes with a detached canvas shower and toilet positioned close at the rear of the tent. The safari shower is fitted with an overhead canvas shower bucket (filled manually with hot water) and toilet fitted with portable chemical toilet. A towel and simple toiletries are provided.
A spacious mess tents with sufficient seating for all camp residents is set in a convenient position and serves as the dining space. There is no electricity, the Camp is lit by lanterns and solar lights.
The migration Camp is a comfortable, well located and great value option for staying within the Masai Mara Reserve. Whilst it doesn’t offer quite the same level of furnishings, sense of style and atmosphere that the Mara’s great small Camps offer (e.g. Kicheche, Porini, Entim, etc.), it is a great option for those looking to keep the budget down, but not wanting to compromise on the location and quality of wildlife experience.
We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.
Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!
We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.
Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.

The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!
