With this trip you will be in search of the thundering herds of the legendary Serengeti wildebeest migration. This great Migration Safari highlights one of the top wildlife areas in Tanzania! The value we bring to the program is that you are guided by a member of a superb team of knowledgeable and fun-filled naturalist guides who knows the area best and has been in the guiding industry for 10+ years. Now featuring five days of game-viewing in the southern plains of the Serengeti's Ndutu area, an absolutely great place to be during the months of December - March as the whole reason for going to Africa is to see wildlife. This ensures that you have enough days in one place to really find the animals and perhaps view part of the Migration and Wildebeest calving (although it depends on the rainfall).


Day 1: Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania

This morning we drive through Arusha, Tanzania's safari capital, to Lake Manyara. Much of the northern part of the park is fed by underground water from the Ngorongoro Highlands and as a result is covered in dense forest vegetation, giving the appearance of a tropical jungle. This forest is ideal habitat for elephant, bushbuck, blue monkey, and huge troops of olive baboon. Some parts are dry bush land attracting zebra, impala and giraffe, while the lakeshore provides another habitat, perfect for flamingos and other shore birds.

Dinner and overnight at Bougan Villea Lodge

Day 2 - 7: Ngorongoro Crater - Southern Serengeti
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

We will leave this morning on our way to Ngorongoro Crater for a full-day game drive (1½ hrs drive from the Bouganvillea Lodge). Our drive takes us up to the rim of the Crater; we will descend more than 2,000 feet on steep tracks cut into the crater wall to reach the open plains of the Crater floor. The Ngorongoro Crater is undoubtedly the best place in Tanzania to view black rhino, as well as large prides of lion that include magnificent black-manned males. It is also home to huge herds of wildebeest and zebra and many other plains game, such as Thomson's gazelle. An alkaline lake in the floor of the Crater provides a habitat for colorful flamingo and a variety of other water birds. Massive bull elephants feed in the swamps, some adorned with enormous tusks. Later in the afternoon, proceed to Serengeti Savannah Camp for dinner and overnight.

For some of these early morning adventures, your camp chef will have prepared your breakfast; and at a morning’s stop in the bush, your guide will serve it to you. On other mornings you will return to camp for breakfast. After lunch and your mid-day relaxation in camp, with the herds of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra nearby, you will venture again into the Serengeti wilderness until returning at sunset to your camp. There will be a campfire where you can meet to discuss the activities of the day and what is planned for the next day. Close the day with a wonderful meal in a spectacular setting.
