Steve and Sarah invite you to join them in Tanzania during the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth, the Great Wildebeest Migration of around 2 million animals in the Serengeti national park!
The migration of wildebeest and zebra through the massive Mara/Serengeti/Ngorongoro ecosystem is a mostly continuous, circular movement following the rains. They bunch up into groups of sometimes 100,000 animals feasting on the nutrient grasses of the southern Serengeti plains, and the only time these 1-2 million animals stop moving is to calve.
Of course every animal migration is very weather-dependent, but no matter what the weather is Tanzania provides the most exciting wildlife safari in the world. The concentration of big game in its four famous northern game parks simply isn’t found anywhere else.
This intense safari is designed for the most dramatic game viewing possible, every single day! Steve and Sarah will show you all four big game parks using a mixture of lodges and first-class tented camps.
You’ll also visit Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. The awesome crater is the most visited game park in all of East Africa.
This is also an exceptional time for birding, too! More than 300 migrant species spend their winters here from the northern hemisphere, raising the area’s avifauna to one of the highest in the world!
Despite this being the perfect time for seeing the great migration it’s considered a low tourist season. The lower prices make some of East Africa’s truly over-the-top accommodations reachable. The price of this safari is based on the number of participants, so bring your friends!
