6 Days Serengeti Migration Safari Tour

This 6-day Great Serengeti Migration Safari package was created to focus on and maximize your chances of seeing the Great Serengeti Northern Serengeti Wildebeest Migration (mara river crossing), Ngorongoro Crater. The itinerary has been designed to include both the Lobo area (north of the central Serengeti National Park) and the Wagakuria area (remote northern Serengeti National Park), where the majority of the wildebeest migration occurs between mid-July and October. This schedule is set up so that you drive from Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater, then back to Arusha town. A visit to the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater is also included in the itinerary. From mid-July to October, the migration splits into two paths as it leaves the middle Serengeti. In dramatic stampedes, the main group heads into the western route, crossing the Grumeti River. Huge crocodiles patiently await the arrival of wildebeests as they rush over the river. The wildebeest continue to travel steadily across the Grumeti region, crossing the Mara River in another risky river crossing and arriving in Kenya's Masai Mara for lush grazing.

    On this day you leave Moshi or Arusha town; the base town for safaris in northern Tanzania and along the Arusha – Dodoma highway a scenic drive towards the Serengeti National Park via the Ngorongoro conservation area. You will pass by a supermarket (if you wish) for some last-minute shopping for any personal effects that you may need. You’ll arrive in Serengeti in the late afternoon. Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We’ll proceed to the Lobo area which is located just north of the Seronera area (central Serengeti National Park). The wildebeest migration normally passes through the Lobo area every year around July / August en route to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve and again in late October / November en route to the southern Serengeti National Park.

  • Day 3

    Full Day Serengeti (Seronera Area) game drive

    After breakfast, enjoy a full-day game drive in the park. The area around Lobo and the Grumeti River has good resident games throughout the year. Non-migrating animals like elephants, buffalo, gazelle, zebra, lion, leopard, and cheetah can be seen here all year round. The game viewing is very good and you can follow the game for long periods without seeing other vehicles – truly one of the forgotten corners of the Serengeti Plains. Magnificent riverine trees can be found along the river lines and bird species such as kingfishers and fish eagles can be found here.

  • Day 4

    Central Serengeti to Northern Serengeti

    After breakfast, we head towards the far northern reach of the Serengeti National Park, also known as the Wagakuria. We will do a game drive en route from the Lobo area to the Wagakuria area. As we head north, good sightings of giraffes, plain game, herds of buffalo, and elephants can often be seen. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch, we will enjoy an afternoon game drive in the area. The wildebeest migration can normally be found in the Wagakuria area from Mid-July to October, depending on rainfall patterns. A long stretch of the Mara River runs through the northern Serengeti National Park and the Mara River provides the migration with its most difficult obstacle. Witnessing the frantic herds of wildebeest crossing the Mara River is amazing.

  • Day 5

    Northern Serengeti to Central Serengeti

    After breakfast, enjoy a full-day game drive in the Wagakuria area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in this area of the park, with pride of lions up to 30 strong, however, from Mid-July to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later. Please take note –Finding a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to the river and only decide to cross or not cross until a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation, and open plains, similar to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. (An option of doing a Hot Air Balloon is also in this area) Serengeti Balloon Safaris: There are no words that can do the experience of floating over the Serengeti justice.” Get a birds-eye view of the park as you ride alongside the sun The flight lasts about an hour, after which passengers gather around a table, surrounded by the park’s lush plains, for an “Out of Africa” English-style breakfast.

  • Day 6

    Central Serengeti to Ngorongoro

    Proceed with morning and afternoon game drives in the Serengeti with a lunch and leisure break at the lodge in the mid-afternoon. The term Serengeti means endless plains in the Masai language. In the central plains, there are carnivores like leopard, lion, hyena, and cheetah. This park is normally the scene of the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra that occurs between the Kenyan Mara and the Serengeti. Varied bird species can be seen here including eagles, ducks, geese, egrets, vultures, secretary birds, ibis, stork, herons, kites, pelicans, cranes, and guinea fowl. The Serengeti National Park is arguably the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world with over 3 million large mammals. About 35 species of plains animals can be seen there including the “big 5” - elephants, Rhino, Lion, Leopard, and Buffalo. Other common species found here include hippo, giraffe, eland, impala and other antelope types, baboons, monkeys, and a profusion of over 500 species of birds. In May or early June, huge herds of wildebeest, gazelle, and zebra begin their annual spectacular migration northwards. In their wake follow predators, lions, cheetah, and wild dogs with vultures circling overhead! After having your lunch, you will continue with the game view in Serengeti heading to the gate of Serengeti to check out of Serengeti National Park, after there you will proceed with the game on route heading to Ngorongoro Crater. Dinner and overnight at a Camp or Lodge at the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.

  • Day 7

    Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha

    After breakfast, descend into the crater with a lunch box enjoying the game drive for more than 7 hours. Millions of years ago, a volcano the size of Mount Kilimanjaro rose from the highlands of northern Tanzania. Its eruption formed the largest unflooded caldera in the world, the Ngorongoro Crater. Now inactive and filled with wildlife, the crater is a playground where you can enjoy game drives in search of the Big Five. The natural protection of the crater’s 600 m (1,968 ft) high walls “Ngorongoro Crater” helps many species to thrive, is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals and this is the best place in Tanzania to see critically endangered black rhino. The park is supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its huge population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard crater floor. After a picnic lunch, you will have a game drive, after game Drive we drive back to Arusha/Moshi overnight.
