Magical Migration Safari

Serengeti Wildebeests Migration is a display of natural wonders with over two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelope traveling over 450 miles across the plain to ensure their survival, unaware that there's danger presented by the stalking lions and cheetahs among other predators of the wildlife. Witness huge crocodiles of the Mara River as they wait for the herbivorous to cross the swollen Mara River and enter into Masai Mara Game Reserve from Serengeti National Park.

Day 2-3

Arusha Tarangire National Park

After the great breakfast in our hotel in Arusha, we drive to Tarangire National Park. Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park is second only to Ngorongoro Conservation area in terms of concentrations of wildlife.

The Park lies to the south of the large open grasslands of southern Maasailand and is named after the Tarangire River, which provides permanent water for wildlife in the park. It is an easy drive by good tarmac road from Arusha, passing open plains and great views of Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru along the way.

Herds of migratory wildebeest, gazelle, zebra and buffalo gather along the marshy shores of Lake Natron. These pools are shared by flocks of birds: green woodhoopoes, fisher lovebirds, tallis herons, white bellied go-away birds and giant kingfishers.

Resident lions, giraffes, elephants, are common at Tarangire National Park. In the evening we will drive to Karatu at kudu Lodge for dinners and overnight.

Serengeti National Park - Central Seronera

After breakfast at our Lodge, we drive to Serengeti central Serengeti national Park via the Ngorongoro conservation Area. Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park and a world heritage site.

The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers an amazing game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

Day 4-5

Serengeti North

After breakfast, we depart for Serengeti North for a game drive viewing the great migration.

River crossings at Kogatende start in August as the mega herd settles into the area. Between August-October, game viewing is at its best with river crossings pretty much guaranteed every day.

There is no distinct movement as the herds tend to cross back and forth over the river, following the rains and subsequent fresh grasses.

Day 5-6

Serengeti Central, Seronera - Ngorongoroconser

After breakfast, we will have a game drive on the way to Central Serengeti and Ngorongoro conservation Area.

Apart from the large mammals, Serengeti is also home to gaudy agama lizards; Rock hyraxes scuffle around the surfaces of the park’s isolated granite koppies. Wide varieties of dung beetle were found, and around 500 bird species have been recorded ranging from the outsized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland, to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills.

Ngorongoro Crater Tour - Karatu

After breakfast, we will have an early morning game drive to Ngorongoro inside the Crater. We will descend more than 600 meters for the game drives with a picnic lunch.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is an extensive highland area along the eastern arm of the Rift Valley, with the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Ngorongoro was established to conserve wildlife and other natural resources. It also safeguards the interests of indigenous people and promotes tourism.

The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th Natural Wonder of the World,’ a visit to the crater is a main draw card for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite excellent attraction. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCAA) is home of Ngorongoro Crater. It was formed some 2.5 million years ago from a volcanic mountain sinking due to inactivity, and was initially thought to be higher than

Tanzania’s famous Kilimanjaro. Then you will have an on route game drive to Karatu for your dinner and overnight.
