Tanzania Wildlife and Cultural Safari
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.
