Technology launched recently by safari operator Discover Africa has shown that this year’s migration across the Masai Mara is happening earlier than usual.
Animals are expected to cross the Mara River this month rather than July, meaning that clients hoping to catch the natural event should book now.
Migration patterns have been easier to spot following the launch of the operator's web app, Herdtracker. The real time Google maps show instant updates of the migration’s precise location and is coupled with a migration map which publishes accurate monthly predictions.
Although forecasts are showing an earlier than usual migration, discounted deals are available for potential safari-goers at a time when camps and lodges are traditionally quiet. This means travellers can be in the right place at the right time for less, as well as reducing vacancies at local accommodation spots.
As an example of prices, a stay at the Serengeti's Lemala Kuria Hills costs from £1,308 per person for travel this month, based on two sharing.
