BBC’s The Hunt – Perfect Inspiration For An African Holiday

Anyone planning a holiday over the next couple of months might want to make sure they watch The Hunt on the BBC (which you can now catch on iPlayer as well, just in case you miss it).

The show features many of the beautiful animals that you can see in this part of the world so if a safari is top of your list of things to do, you’re sure to enjoy watching the programme.

You’re sure to come across leopard, lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant – the Big Five, as they’re often known as. And if you’re especially lucky – and have planned your holiday at the right time of year – you may even see the famed wildebeest migration, which was featured in the TV show.

  • Lioness
  • Wildebeest

Plan your trip between June and October, and you’re more than likely to see millions of zebra and wildebeest crossing the Mara River, taking their chances with the crocodiles and the incredibly fast moving waters to reach the other side. It’s an terribly risky journey that these animals take each year – and the perils aren’t over once they’re out of the water, as other predators like leopards and lions are lying in wait to catch them unawares.

We here at Journey in Style know how eager you all are to catch these sights for yourself and we can take you to the exact spot on the river where the migration takes place each year. Why not get in touch to see how we can help you plan the trip of a lifetime today?
