"Besides a real sense of comradery in a deep jungle camp and the chance to explore breathtaking wildlife across East Africa's premier national parks and savannahs, you will never forget watching 'Great Migration' of 1.5 million wildebeest accompanied by 200,000 zebras, face-to-face"
The Wildebeest Migration, is one of the 'Seven New Wonders of the World' and also known as The World Cup of Wildlife. The yearly cycle begins when a half million calves are born between January and March in southern part of Kenya. Once the rains end in May the land dries fast, then the grazing animals head north for their dry season refuge in the Masai Mara. Heralded as one of the Earth’s most remarkable natural spectacles, this perpetual procession of 1.5 million wildebeest, zebras and antelopes, escorted by prowling assortment of big cats - Lion and Chhittah, is nearly impossible to describe. It is incredible, it is magical, and it is a must!Catch the spectacular show of great migration in Kenya where dramatic scenes are combined with serene panoramas and unbeatable safari moments with 50+ Voyagers Travel and Adventure Club, on a African Safari tour exclusively designed for 50+ aged and Senior Citizens.

Built into the side of the slope of the Mweiga Hill, Aberdare Country Club, is a haven of unhurried charm set in garden bursting with a profusion of color, and with peacocks living within the lush green lawns.

We will stay overnight at The Aberdare Country Club.

The Ark is located at 1800 meters above sea level on the Aberdare Ranges, situated in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, iconic and yet quicky, overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick, which attracts a host of awesome wildlife.

The shoreline is nearly always coated in pink, while over 300 species of birds fly overhead and through the surrounding woodlands. Giraffe and buffalo stand proud, one elegant and colorful, the other heavy-set and powerful. Post lunch, in the late afternoon, you will set off to explore the shores of Lake Nakuru for numerous black and white rhinoceros.
Return to the Lodge for a fresh and local dinner in the dining area before drifting to sleep as a breeze from the lake blows through your cottage room.

It is perhaps the only region left in Kenya where the visitor can see animals in the same super-abundance as they existed a century ago. Passing through the park gates will signal the beginning of your first safari as you begin to move through herds of gazelle, zebra, and giraffe on route.Check in to Masai Mara leisure camp and enjoy your lunch. Later in the afternoon, proceed on a game drive through endless grass plains that stretch into the horizon, more than two million mammals graze on this land during the great wildebeest migration. We won't be the only one closely inspecting the herds. Trailing their movements is an abundant collection of predators. The big cats may be found in many parks across East Africa, but nowhere can rival the Masai Mara for its sheer concentration of these imperial predators. Return back to the camp and after dinner, gather round the fire with other travellers to swap stories of the day’s adventures before sleepily returning to your cabin.
When asked to imagine an African safari, you’ll probably picture the plains of the Masai Mara without even realizing it. Flat-topped acacia trees dot vast, rolling grasslands covered with thousands of grazing animals - giraffe, buffalo and elephants. Lions doze in the shade, while zebras nibble at the tall grass just meters away. Today is the the day for one of the great African safari.
