The Great Migration

It is the greatest show on earth, a natural spectacle like no other and a life-changing experience. With a presence all along the migration route, Asilia will transport you to the best seat in the house.

The earth vibrates with the thundering of millions of hooves as heaving herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles fill the plains to chase the rains in the epic annual struggle for survival known as the Great Migration.
