Your August Travel Plans Must Include Kenya

The Great Migration is one of the awe-inspiring natural spectacles on the planet, when more than 1.5 million wildebeest sweep through East Africa between July and October every year. In Kenya, the best place to watch the phenomenon is the Masai Mara National Reserve, with ample rivers (that’s where the real action takes place) and cliffs overlooking the savannah. Set up shop at the 15-suite Angama Mara, which sits close to the Mara River and affords 180-degree views of the surrounding plains. Even if you miss some of the migration action, you’ll be able to see elephant, buffalo, and giraffe from your suite, or take a Maasai-led walking safari to see even more wildlife.
