EXPEDITION OVERVIEW

This tour will take you deep into the Southern Serengeti to witness the Great Migration of Wildebeest during the green season from January through March when the area around the border of Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area becomes the perfect ground for the mass wildebeest calving. Here the plains are rich in nutritious grass, providing the herds with the best conditions for raising their newborn calves. There is a lot of action going on at this time, as the predators become especially active and take every opportunity to hunt easy prey. To witness this spectacle is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should top the bucket list of every safari enthusiast.

This trip is not limited to the Great Migration only, since you will also get a chance to explore the central part of the Serengeti where you will enjoy different landscapes and absolutely fantastic sunsets. You may be pleasantly surprised by the array of wild animals in that part of the park.

The route is designed to offer you the incredible experience of the African bush during this special season. Throughout your stay, you will be accommodated in a selection of comfortable classic safari camps away from the crowds, which will give you the opportunity for an intimate connection with nature.

Our professional expert guide will take care of you on every step of your journey and will make sure you will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience with long-lasting memories and beautiful images. 

This trip will suit wildlife enthusiasts wanting to experience off-the-beaten-track roads and the ones who like traveling comfortably and at a slow pace.

Our driver will be waiting for you at the airport to transfer you to your lodge in Arusha before your safari begins the following day. Upon arrival at the lodge, a member of our team will meet you for a briefing and Q&A relating to your safari.

Transfer to Serengeti National Park. By air in Lux option by land Mid-Range.

Central Serengeti is the heart of the park where you’ll find the best game viewing at any time of year. Central Serengeti is the site for exhilarating hot air balloon safaris, which we offer in addition to the game driving. This activity can be booked at extra cost. The landscape of Central Serengeti features a vast range of various ecosystems and includes grasslands, acacia forests and seasonal streams. Central Serengeti is home to many different species and offers quintessential African scenery. Seronera is home to an incredible population of hippos due to the Retina Hippo Pool. You may also see large herds of giraffes, antelopes, elephants and zebras, and big cats like lions, leopards and cheetahs remain in the area regardless of the season.

Overland transfer to South Serengeti. Check into the mobile migration camp. Game viewing on the way to the camp followed by dinner with the sundowner.

Ndutu area is home to the Wildebeest Migration’s calving season. The Southern part of the Serengeti consists of flat terrain with nutritious short grasses, open plains and granite kopjes spread out. During the calving season, the game drive in this area is exceptional. Lake Ndutu, where your camp will be located, is a small seasonal lake surrounded by acacia trees and supports an incredible birdlife with pink flamingos. Southern Serengeti is favored by many filmmakers and photographers as the wildlife here is abundant and vibrant combined with an incredible topography of the place. You may see Zebra, Lion, Cheetah, Leopard, Jackal, Serval, Caracal, Hyena, Elephant and, of course, thousands of Wildebeests. This is the time when about 8,000 wildebeests are born each day and it is common to see predators hunting an easy meal, so be ready for action!
