Migration Safari

Serengeti National Park

2 Days

ITINERARY

This tour involves 6 Days of game drives in the vast Serengeti national park which sees the annual migration of the wildebeests during the change of seasons from Masai Mara Game Reserve on the Kenyan side of the border to Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.


You can opt for balloon rides so that you can hear and see the endless majestic horde of beasts as they traverse the savannah landscape.


Every year nearly a million of these wildebeests follow the same paths as they cross the Savannah. Predators such as the big cats and the crocodiles lie in wait to catch a meal. be a witness to this action.

DAY 1: ARUSHA/ NGORONGORO

Pick up from Arusha and transfer to the Ngorongoro Conservation area. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for an afternoon safari tour.

DAY 2: NGORONGORO/ SERENGETI

After breakfast we will head towards the Serengeti National Park, leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the Lobo area which is located just north of the Seronera area (central Serengeti National Park). The wildebeest migration, normally pass through the Lobo area every year around July / August en-route to the Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve and again in late October / November en-route to the southern Serengeti National Park.

We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park.

Dinner and overnight in the Lobo area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

DAY 3: SERENGETI(LOBO)

After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive in the Serengeti National Park. The area around Lobo and the Grumeti River has good resident game throughout the year. Non-migrating game like elephant, buffalo, gazelle, zebra, lion, leopard and cheetah can be seen here all year round. The game viewing is very good and you can follow game for long periods without seeing other vehicles – truly one of the forgotten corners of the Serengeti Plains. Magnificent riverine trees can be found along the river lines and bird life such as kingfishers and fish eagles can be found here.

Dinner and overnight in the Lobo area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

DAY 4: LOBO/ WAGAKURIA AREA SERENGETI

After breakfast we head towards the far northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park, also known as the Wagakuria. We will do a game drive en-route from the Lobo area to the Wagakuria area. As we head north, good sightings of giraffe, plain game, herds of buffalo and elephants can often be seen.

We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge/luxury camp and after lunch will we enjoy an afternoon game drive in the area. The wildebeest migration can normally be found in the Wagakuria area from August to October, depending on rainfall patterns. A long stretch of the Mara River runs through the northern Serengeti National Park and the Mara River provides the migration with its most difficult obstacle. Witnessing the frantic herds of wildebeest crossing the Mara River is amazing.

Dinner and overnight in the Wagakuria area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

DAY 5: WAGAKURIA (NOTHERN SERENGETI)

After breakfast enjoy a full day game drive in the Wagakuria area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, however from August to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later. Please take note – to actually finding a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to river and only decide to cross or not cross until a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation and open plains, similar to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Dinner and overnight in the Wagakuria area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.
