Watch the annual Great Migration with Mahali Mzuri’s live virtual safaris

3rd August 2020

Following the success of Virgin Limited Edition’s weekly live sofa safari series, it’s now getting ready to virtually showcase one of the seven 'new' wonders of the world, the annual Great Migration, as it crosses through the path of Mahali Mzuri in the Maasai Mara in Kenya.

The truly breath-taking and astonishing natural spectacle that is the Great Migration will see anywhere up to two million animals, mostly wildebeest, moving en masse in a never-ending search for food and water. The wildebeest and accompanying zebra, gazelle, eland and topi make up the bulk of the migration, but they aren't the only players. Lions, hyenas, leopards and other predators take full advantage of the passing buffet and will exploit every opportunity in search of a decent meal.

With the help of some very talented Guides, Mahali Mzuri has been showcasing live game drives in the famous Maasai Mara with phenomenal sightings that have included elephants, giraffes, buffalo, lions, cheetah and much more. With the herds about to make an appearance over the coming weeks, viewers of the weekly live safaris will be in for a real treat as they’ll get the next best thing to witnessing in person, the rare opportunity to view the Great Migration live from the comfort of their own sofa.

Home to the famous annual Great Migration, Kenya’s landscape offers never-ending savannah plains and a completely alternative viewing experience, compared to that of its sister property Ulusaba in South Africa. Live game drives from Mahali Mzuri offer a front row seat in the heart of the Mara and an almost guarantee of seeing at least one of the big five.

Vanessa Neal, Group Director of Sales and Marketing of Virgin Limited Edition said: “Our virtual safari experiences over the last few months have been hugely popular with viewers, so we’re thrilled that we’re able to continue the Mahali Mzuri episodes during the famous migration season. Our weekly live game drives from both Mahali Mzuri and its sister property Ulusaba, in South Africa, have given many something to look forward to every week, at a time when they can only dream of travelling and what better way to see one of the greatest wonders of the world, rather than missing out completely this year. We’re so glad that through our live sofa safaris we can still provide a little of the Virgin Limited Edition magic at this time.”
