SERENGETI AND THE SECRET MIGRATION

Explore Ngorongoro Crater and with an extra night in the Serengeti, witness the Great Migration on game drives and from the elevated balconies of unique bush rovers

Few countries in the world are as exciting as Tanzania. Firstly, its breathtaking scenery from the savannah to the sands of Zanzibar. Secondly, its abundant wildlife with the greatest viewing potential of any country. Discover two of the world’s best wildlife highlights, Ngorongoro crater, the world’s largest volcanic caldera enclosing 100 square miles of prolific wildlife, and the Serengeti, now featuring an extra night to witness one of the most spectacular events on earth!

The Great Migration comprises massive groups of wildebeest, zebra and antelope continually moving in search of the best grass, stalked by the great cats and at risk of an ambush by a crocodile at river crossings. It is in fact a circular movement around the Serengeti throughout the year from the Grumeti River up to the Mara River and down to the Ngorongoro Highlands.

Our innovative safari features Bush Rovers sited according to the season and expected location of the migration, so this event may be observed away from the busiest sites across the entire eco-system throughout the year. The movement of the migration is not fully predictable, viewing success may vary.
