Explore three pristine wildlife areas in Tanzania with a chance to witness the Great Migration. While the sight of hundred of thousands of wildebeest and zebras thunder across the plains is spectacular, the Mara River 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.
