On the footprints of the Great Migration

Serengeti Great Migration

Destination Serengeti! Depending on the season, you might see the Great Migration – one of the most incredible experiences you can try in Tanzania. Every year, the endless Serengeti National Park becomes the scenic frame where more than 2 millions wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate looking for greener pasture. If this sounds to you like a good plan, you can ask our safari experts about it; and have a look at our calendar.

From December to March

Big herds of herbivorous concentrate in Ndutu region and Ndutu Lake, part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and continuation of Serengeti South. Ndutu Safari Lodge is a good option for accommodation.

From April to May

It’s rainy season, and despite the weather these months are a good option if you prefer to travel in low tourist season. The migration moves to Serengeti South, Western Corridor and Serengeti central. Many hotels are located here, like Sopa.

From July to October

The right place is Northern Serengeti, along Mara River. You can reach it from Arusha, the starting point of many safaris in the Northern Circuit. Because of the position, it is possible to combine the safari with a visit to Lake Victoria and Mwanza town.

From October to December

The herds of herbivorous enter in Masai Mara Park (Kenya) and then, from the end of October, they come back to Southern Serengeti and Ndutu area, where they can be seen from December.
