Migration Safari: 9 Days

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 5,564

Experience the greatest natural show on earth with this Tanzanian safari during the Great Migration. Connecting to Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti, you’ll stay in first-class game lodges and head on game drives to see over a million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras and gazelles migrating over the African savannah.


This 7-day Tanzanian safari takes you to the Serengeti in the midst of the Great Migration, the greatest display of animal life on the planet. It features first-class accommodations, small-group tours, and is ideal for travellers on safari for the first time. 

Your journey begins in Arusha, the city in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, where you’ll spend a night before connecting to Tarangire National Park. In the park, you’ll stay at Lemala Mpingo Ridge Lodge, a 4-star property with beautiful views of the Tarangire River off the escarpment. During your time in the park, you’ll have two days to head on game drives to spot the large numers of buffalo, elephants, lions, warthogs, and kudu in the park. From Tarangire, connect to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, located within the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera. Staying in one of the nine spacious luxury tents at Lemala Camp Ngorongoro, a seasonal camp within an acacia forest on the rim of the crater, you’ll head on more game drives within the crater that’s densely populated with wildlife, from the Big Five to hippos, Grant’s zebras, and cheetahs. 

The grand attraction on your migration safari is Serengeti National Park. Connect into the park and stay at Lemala Ewanjan Camp, a deluxe camp with 10 tents along Makoma Hill in the Central Serengeti. If you happen to visit between April and June or November and January, you’ll witness the Great Migration occurring within the park, where over a million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras and Thomson’s gazelles pass from the lower reaches of the Serengeti up into the Masai Mara in Kenya and back down, following water and food. You’ll head on game drives to see this overwhelming display of animal life, the greatest natural show on earth. You’ll also see the vast numbers of animals in the world’s most popular game park, from elephants and giraffes to lions and leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and the adorable serval. 

At the end of your stay in the Serengeti, you’ll return to Arusha to connect to your onward destination.

The migrating herds of over 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra begin to arrive in December and throughout February and March the calving and rutting season takes place.
