Migration Safari,  Wildebeest, Masai Mara Safari - Kenya Safaris

The Migration Starts in Masai Mara Early in 2017 

The migration of wildebeests and zebras have now entered the Mara.Every indication shows that the stage is set for the world’s most fascinating wildlife spectacle. Herds of mainly zebras and wildebeest have crossed the border near sand river gate. They could be seen in the mornings taking their traditional route towards Roan hill, and some have already crossed the main road to the Mara river from Sekenani gate. Their movement however is slower because of the amount of grass in their way. Since April this year we have continued having intermittent rains which has made the plains covered in long green grass.

Book any of our safaris starting from Nairobi  and going to Masai Mara National Reserve either  by Road or Fly to Masai Mara.

An idea of how to travel  -patching the dots!!!

Holiday - jeepsafaris

We have simply drawn by hand the route that you follow from Arrivall in Kenya using the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, then follow the arrows to the destinations, the glued pictures you can see are the receipts from the entry park tickets for the parks including receipts to the carnivore restaurant until you finally get back to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for your onward flight. Hope you understand the creativity in this drawing done by our Intern Susan Ndungu under supervision. Guests have really liked this  Safari that takes you to several parks and reserve within Kenya and its populality is still growing. Suprises are also included in the safari but we have not indicated them in the itinerary. Only we who know what we will suprise you with. Hope you will book and travel some day as well!

Camel Derby Fans Safari to Maralal, Kenya

 camelderby-cruzeirosafaris

FROM 26 - 28 AUG, 2017. 

We started taking people to the Camel Derby in 2013, travel with the people who know the journey. Review from our trip advisor clients Maralal Camel Derby fun! : Reviewed September 10, 2013: Traveled with Cruzeiro Safaris to the 

Maralal Camel Derby on 30 August - 1September.The event was amazing and I would recommend it to everyone. There was an amazing mix of local culture with Camel racing. Be warned you need gloves and good shoes if you are going to ride the camel (it hurts!) but great fun.Cruzeiro Safaris were excellent, they arranged everything and although the journey was very long (approx 10 hour drive from Nairobi) it was worth it. Accommodation was basic in tents (but what we had expected and paid for) and the food was good. I also had to cancel a few people from our group at late notice and they were very understanding.I would recommend others to use them if planning a trip in Kenya.Visited August 2013
