Serengeti Migration & Zanzibar

Two male lions on the plain

A 11 day safari to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Zanzibar

Wide rolling plains meet endless blue horizons; seas of golden grass wave in gentle breezes as vultures wait and circle overhead. This is the Serengeti in Tanzania, Africa at its best.

Everything in the Serengeti is larger than life. It is the land of rolling plains and perhaps the only region in Tanzania where there is the same super abundance of animals seen a century ago. Follow the path of the annual migration in a private guided game viewing vehicle with experienced guides who will take you on several drives each day, searching out lion, elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and all the herds that are part of the spectacular great Serengeti migration crossing Mara River. In the evenings, relax in the charming tented camps and loges and watch the sunset over the plains as you enjoy drinks by the fire place.

Get your camera before heading out to track the Big Five along the Mara River with your experienced guide. Your migration-inspired game drive will then take you into the thick of the Serengeti plains, in search of zebras, gazelles, impalas and, of course, wildebeests who thunderously feed and migrate from the Serengeti  to Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

Cross over into the seamlessly never-ending expanses of the Serengeti, considered by many as the best for the game viewing location in all of Africa, and track predators and prey as they act out the dramatic circle of life. Take a tour to the Ngorongoro Crater, the worldʹs largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera, for a chance to glimpse over 20,000 mammal species that call the bottom the crater home.

Your great migration safari will be greater than you ever imagined. End your memorable African safari relaxing on the beaches of Zanzibar.
