Tour Details

Get a chance to visit one of the world’s famous Serengeti National Park whereby there is the largest population of wildlife, more than millions of wildebeest and Zebras migrating from place to place in a regular pattern on their pursuit for food. On this program, you will visit the western Serengeti where the great migrating herds attempt to cross the Grumeti river while the hungry crocodiles wait for their meal. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous.

What to Expect

Explore three pristine wildlife areas in Tanzania with a chance to witness the Great Migration. While the sight of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebras thunder across the plains is spectacular, the crossing is absolutely one of the most breathtaking natural actions in wildlife sightings. Dust exploding, lions stalking a moveable feast, gigantic crocodiles, and fast-flowing wild rivers await. It is sensational, impressive, and dramatic at the same time. This is one of the obstacles of the great migration.

  • See the wildebeest in Grumeti River and crocodiles hunting.
  • Admire Africa stealthy predators’ lions, leopard and hyenas in Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
