Choosing which time of year to see the Great Wildebeest Migration is made easy with this safari. Moving between Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara, this 10-day itinerary ensures that you will be in front-row seats for nature’s biggest show and some of its most dramatic chapters, depending on which time of year you choose to visit, such as the birthing season, the great trek, and the treacherous river crossings, complete with giant crocodiles.
This is a Migration itinerary backed up by some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa. When you are not watching the Migration, you will be on the lookout for the Big 5 in the Ngorongoro Crater – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and elephant – and enjoying diverse wildlife sightings throughout the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. Predators – like all the big cats, wild dogs, cheetahs and hyenas – are well represented and the general game viewing and bird watching are excellent.
It is a fly-in safari, saving you several long journeys by road. You are met and assisted each step of the way as you fly between destinations. Small and intimate camps – ideal for romantic travel, and that will appeal to honeymooners and couples - provide the accommodation and you enjoy morning and afternoon game drives with their expert guides. You will be ‘under canvas’ for this safari in large, well-furnished tents with their own en suite bathrooms. Simple bucket showers and campfires gives these places give an authentic wilderness feel but you have all the comforts of home in your tent including electric lighting as well as stunning views from your outdoor seating area.
