Here's an easy answer to East Africa's annual migration - regarded as the "greatest show on earth"! You need to look at Tanzania's Serengeti or Kenya's Masai Mara, December to March or May to November for your migration safari.
The migration itself involves around 1.5 million wildebeest, gazelle and zebra always on the move in a great clockwise sweep around the larger Serengeti eco-system.
It's always extremely busy. Unfortunately this can apply to some areas even when the migration isn’t in the vicinity. When the migration is “on”, space is at a premium, prices are relatively high and advance bookings are essential.
Consider some of our recommendations below or explore the migration in a bit more depth.
