The great migration - regarded by many as the greatest show on earth
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania - 6 days/5 nights
Where is it?
The safari begins with two nights in the Loliondo conservation area, adjacent to the Serengeti Plains, which allows guests to experience night drives and interaction with the local communities. Continue to the Serengeti with your private guide, to roam around the plains in the wake of the migration, carrying picnics and drinks on board your specially equipped safari vehicle.
What is the best time of year to go?
The safari is available from mid-December to mid-May in southern Serengeti and mid-Sept to mid-November in the northern and central parts.
Tanzania has two rainy seasons as does Kenya. The short one "muvli" during November and December and a longer one "masika" from late February to May. November to March are good game viewing months in the southern Serengeti and July to September are popular with families and due to the migration moving over the Mara River in the northern Serengeti.
Temperature fluctuations are small due to the proximity to the equator but it can be surprisingly chilly in the evening and early mornings, especially on the Ngorongoro Crater rim because of the high altitude. Fleeces and jackets are usually required in the evenings and early mornings on safari.
How to get there
The safari starts and ends in Arusha, Tanzania at either Mt Kilimanjaro International airport or Arusha domestic airport. An overnight before or after the safari may be necessary depending on your flight connections.
