7 DAY TANZANIA SERENGETI MIGRATION SAFARI

Witness and be part of the wonder through this Serengeti migration safari

Our Great Serengeti Migration Safari tour has been crafted to enhance your opportunities to witness the great Serengeti Wildebeest Migration. So as to maximize your game viewing time in the northern Serengeti, this itinerary allows you to fly back from the Serengeti National Park to Moshi. The package also gives you an opportunity to visit the world famous Ngorongoro Crater. From August all the way to October, the migration heads north, out of the central Serengeti, splitting into two routes. The largest group heads into the western corridor crossing the Grumeti River in spectacular stampedes. The African Nile crocodiles wait patiently to snatch wildebeests as they make way across the river so as to end up in the Nothern part of the park where they will be making another river crossing at Kogatende(north Serenget) to cross the Mara River and reach the lush grazing in Kenya's Masai Mara

Day 1: Moshi - Serengeti National Park

Early morning breakfast then drive to the Central Serengeti, the lush plains of the Serengeti have made it an ideal home to wildlife for millions of years. This ancient ecosystem continues to thrive and wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and giraffe are often seen grazing in herds. This is one of the best places in the world to spot lions dozing in a shade, also leaping after a marked prey or gnawing off a share of their hunt, later in the evening drive back for relaxation, dinner and overnight.

Day 2 & 3: North Serengeti National Park 

After an early breakfast, you will head out to make the most of the day.  There is a chance you may see the animals crossing the Mara River. Hundreds of thousands of desperate wildebeest gather together on the banks of the river, gazing wistfully across the turbulent water at the green grass on the other side but not one animal will make a move. All it takes is one brave wildebeest to take the literal plunge and, then, all follow!  The animals that do successfully avoid the awaiting crocodile jaws and make it over the river are rewarded with the lush green grazing grass of the Masai Mara.

Your early Morning breakfast will be served at the lodge. After breakfast, we will once again travel out into the mighty Serengeti Plain.

Many of the animals' you will observe during this morning exploration will be returning from their nightly search for nourishment. The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates this great park. During your drive, you will also see Golden-mane Lions, Solitary Leopards who hunt near the acacia trees, and of course, your experienced driver-guide will continue his quest to find members of the "BIG 5" animal family. After your exciting game drive, you will return back to the lodge and experience another wonderful evening diner and overnight. All meals will be served at the Lodge.

Day 5: Serengeti Plains – Ngorongoro Crater

Upon the completion of your breakfast, with your boxed lunch from the lodge you will depart and take a final exploration of the amazing Serengeti National Park. After your morning Safari drive, we will head towards the Ngorongoro National park with a game en route at Ngorongoro conservation area. You will also have a chance to stop at Masai boma, a traditional Masai village (optional) to experience and learn the cultural life of Maasai people.

The Masai are an indigenous ethnic group of semi-nomadic people living in northern Tanzania and Kenya, and they are the only group allowed free travel over the border. The Masai reside near many game parks and their dress is very distinctive. Consequently, they are probably the most well-known African ethnic group in the world.

Later evening, you will arrive at the edge of amazing Ngorongoro crater where you will find your over-night stay

Day 7: Tarangire National Park – Moshi

After breakfast we collect our lunch boxes and depart for the Tarangire National Park. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania's dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African National Park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings.
