What You Need To Know

If you want to experience a seamless migration safari in Tanzania, then you’ll need to plan adequately. The great wildebeest migration is an annual event that occurs in Kenya and Tanzania. The start of the migration is dependent on the timing of the year’s rains. Considering the unpredictability of the rains, there are a few tips to assist in planning for a safari of this nature. In terms of when to go, the migration takes place between May and December which is regarded to be the peak season. It is however important to keep in mind that the timing of the migratory herds’ movements can be unpredictable.

The people are great. There are over 100 ethnic groups in Tanzania, making the local cuisine fascinating and cultural activities intriguing.

Mount Kilimanjari is massive. At 5895m high and 40km wide, it’s little wonder why this is Africa’s highest peak.

The road infrastructure is not as good as it used to be.

Drink bottled water.

Get vaccinated, especially against malaria.

From August to December.

Bringing the right personal items and clothing on your migration safari in Tanzania not only keeps you comfortable and safe, it also increases the level of enjoyment in the various adventurous activities you are going to undertake. The most important and obvious rule is to ensure you pack lightly
. Make the wisest choice on what clothing you will bring. Unless you plan to attend a special event, formal clothing is unnecessary. Bring loose-fitting clothes that will make you comfortable throughout the day and night. Avoid bright coloured clothing that might soil easily and choose neutral colours such as light bark, khaki, beige, green and olive. Ensure you pack insect repellent as tsetse flies and mosquitoes are concerns in Tanzania.

Due to the intensity of the activities you may undertake throughout your stay, appropriate shoes to protect your feet from thorns and stones are a must. Get some waterproof shoes such as hiking boots for game drives and hikes.

Between April and May, the rains abate and the Serengeti tends to dry out, which may not make this the best time to visit. From June to July, a transitional period starts and the rains alternate with the dry season. This is the regarded as the mid season.

​Safari-style holiday where your itinerary is planned and your needs are generally taken care of.
