per person

customised to your needs

June signals the end of the rainy season when the Serengeti plains are lush and green. The herds are spread out during this period so you can expect longer and more rewarding game drives. It's also during this time when the wildebeest cross the Grumeti River which is home to some of the largest Nile crocodiles in the world. July marks the start of the Mara River crossing as well as the mating season in the Serengeti.

Your migration safari will start in the city closest to Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak. Following this, you will visit Tarangire National Park which has the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa.

You’ll then head to the Ngorongoro Crater, which teems with wildlife and provides spectacular viewing all-year round. Afterward, you will visit the central Serengeti to witness part of the great wildebeest migration and watch as the herds follow the rains.

But the game viewing doesn't end with the wildebeest migration. You will also sight lion, elephant, giraffe, gazelle, and eland.
