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 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.

13Days /12 Night

Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire Manyara National Park

In the morning you will be picked from your hotel and drive to Tarangire National Park for game viewing the Giant baobab trees, bush savannah, and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is considered one of the best places to view elephants up close, not only because there are thousands of animals but also because they are not disturbed by the presence of vehicles. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions, Leopard, and cheetah late in the drive to tour lodge.

Day 2: Full Day Tarangire National Park.

This day will be spent entirely on game viewing through the park exploring the park’s vast habitats and landscape up to the Silalei swamp where during the dry season offers green pasture and water for the grazers and the predators follow them here. During the months of June to November when we have the seasonal migration of wildebeest and zebras the park bust into life with possibly the biggest concentration of wildlife outside Serengeti national park and the largest population of elephants per square kilometers in the world. Other sightings will include lions, cheetah, leopard, giraffes, and buffaloes and if you are lucky the rare wild dogs are found here. In the late afternoon stop four of your bush sundowner drinks which will be made by your guide.

Day 5: Karatu - Central Serengeti National Park.

Today you will set off to the Serengeti National Park. After passing the crater highlands, you will soon see the plains of the southern Serengeti and start to understand the meaning of the word “Serengeti” which stands for endless plain. We will visit a Site of many archaeological discoveries, including the estimated 1.7-million- year –old Zinjanthropus boisei fossil. A small museum overlooks the gorge itself, and a guide there will tell you the story of Leakey’s research and findings. After proceeding to Serengeti where we can see animals such as Elephants, Buffaloes, lions, Cheetahs, Hyenas, Giraffes, Zebras, Wildebeests, topi, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelle and many more can be seen. The Serengeti is also home to the largest animal migration on the planet. Depending on the time of the year and the location of the big herds

Day 6&7: Serengeti Central.

These two days are dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. During the short rainy season in November and December, the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June, they move to the center extending to the western corridor. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year but your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best, but game viewing in Serengeti does not entirely depend on the migration since the residence animals are always there, lions, cheetah, leopard, elephants, giraffes, hippos, hyena and host of antelope species are the common residence to mention a few.  You will spend the two nights at Tingitana Tented Camp
