SERENGETI AND THE SECRET MIGRATION

Witness the Great Migration with magnificent views from elevated balconies of unique bush rovers and explore Ngorongoro crater

Few countries in the world are as exciting as Tanzania. Firstly, there is its breathtaking scenery from the savannah to the sands of Zanzibar. Secondly, the wildlife is spectacular with the greatest viewing potential of any country. Discover two of the world’s best wildlife highlights, Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater, the world’s largest volcanic caldera enclosing 100 square miles of prolific wildlife.

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 ambush by 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 current location of the migration, so this ‘Secret Migration’ 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 and viewing success may vary.

Special Event

Private Bush Rover

Two nights in a unique & private mobile camp sited in the migration area, a Land Rover conversion with tented accommodation on a working Land Rover, hardwood bathroom, elevated bedroom with balcony, mosquito nets, downstairs bathroom and front seat WC.

 

 Seeing animals close-up was a bonus and the accommodation and meals were superb.
