Join HerdTracker on a 10-day wildebeest migration safari in the Grumeti region of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Why you should join us on this wildebeest migration safari

June is traditionally marks the start of the Grumeti River crossings, as the herds risk it all to continue their trek to the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. 

The Grumeti River is home to some of the world's biggest Nile crocodiles. These crocodiles are infrequent eaters and wait for the migration river crossings to provide them with food.

Estimated cost per person for a 10-day safari like this, depending on the season.
International flights not included.


Costing tip: When comparing with other companies, remember most of them only show the low season rate. How pricing works >
