Well, I don't know the distance, but it took us at least a couple of hours to reach the Mara Triangle. This is where the migration would cross the river. The Mara river is actually closer to Sarova Mara than that, but we were told that the migration only crosses at the Mara Triangle (which is also another park entrance fee when you get there).
