We have the ultimate Twin Migration Safari for you!

Spot the majestic humpback whales in Watamu and witness the great wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara. Best part, this is all in one week!

7 night Twin Migration trip is available, July – August 2021, from $3,905 per person.

Wildlife enthusiasts have a reason to smile. Hemingways Collection has put together the perfect safari to experience two dramatic wildlife experiences in Kenya between July – August. In one trip, you will get the chance to view both the wildebeest crossings in the Mara and humpback whale migration on the coast at Watamu.

Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara


Start off with the wildebeest migration while staying at the luxurious Ol Seki Hemingways Mara. Enjoy an early breakfast then head over to await the dramatic crossing of hundreds of wildebeest at the Mara River. On the way, explore the many wildlife that the Mara has to offer before arriving at the river to witness this natural wonder. The thrill that comes in witnessing hundreds to thousands of wildebeest leaping through the river on a bid to get to the other side as fast as possible.

Next, fly down to the Kenyan coast to stay at the luxurious, 5 star Hemingways Watamu.

At Watamu is where you will witness the majestic humpback whales migrate in large numbers just beyond the reef. The whales make their annual migration north from Antarctica to the warm tropical inner reefs for protection, making the return 4,000km journey in October.

On Hemingways’ own deep-sea fishing boats, which hold a maximum of eight guests for a private experience, head out to sea and watch as the whales make their journey.
