Kenya And Tanzania Wildebeest Migration Safari

For the greatest chances of seeing the Great Migration and possible river crossings, it is typically recommended to combine a trip to Tanzania’s Serengeti with a visit to Kenya’s Masai Mara between July and October.

In search of new forage, the herds often make multiple crossings of the Mara River at various intervals throughout the year. This Kenya And Tanzania Wildebeest Migration tour incorporates a little amount of driving in the Serengeti and a descent of Ngorongoro Crater to keep the price range affordable.

We can tailor your Kenya And Tanzania Wildebeest Migration safari itinerary to your interests, so if you have extra time, you may extend your stay to include Tarangire and Lake Manyara.

Detailed Kenya And Tanzania Wildebeest Migration Safari Itinerary

Day 1-3: Masai Mara

The Great Migration Masai Mara Kenya

Upon arrival at NBO airport, please proceed to the exit and arrange to meet our driver. Ensure punctuality for your flight to the Masai Mara by taking a road shuttle to Wilson Airport. If you need a night in Nairobi before your arriving flight, we can help you with that. Just get in touch with us for further details.

Your safari guide will be waiting for you when you reach the Mara. To ensure that your stay is tailored to your exact specifications, a private vehicle will be provided to you. Overlooking the Olare Orok River, Speke’s Camp is nestled among magnificent indigenous trees on the edge of the Maasai Mara Reserve. All of your meals are provided, and you can arrange your days with your guide through chat. Depending on the path taken by the herds, the Great Migration might be observed between August and September.

Masai Mara National Reserve, in southwestern Kenya, is home to limitless plains, a plethora of species, and stunning views over its 1,510 square km (583 square miles) of territory. The reserve is home to a wide variety of animals, including elephants, buffalo, giraffes, lions, and cheetahs. You can also spot leopards on a regular basis, discover endangered black rhinos hiding in the thickets, and swim with huge crocodiles and massive rafts of hippos in the Mara River. More than 450 different bird species call the park their home.

Day 4: Karatu

Before your journey to Wilson, make sure you get to the Musiara airstrip in plenty of time to connect with your connection into Kilimanjaro Airport in Arusha, Tanzania. You will be greeted by your private safari vehicle and safari guide upon arrival. Approximately three hours later, we will set out for the outskirts of Lake Manyara in Karatu, where you will spend the night. Please note that our arrival time may be slightly delayed due to travel schedules. The guest home in Karatu includes dinner and sleep.

Day 5: Seronera

Get up bright and early and leave Karatu with breakfast in a bag. On your way to Ngorongoro Crater for some wildlife viewing this morning, you’ll take a scenic drive across the crater. The crater is home to more than 25,000 animals, making it the most densely populated protected area in Africa. You might be fortunate enough to see all five of Africa’s most feared predators—lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, and buffalo. Have breakfast in the crater before leaving to see the Serengeti. Traveling to Seronera from Serengeti takes around 4.5 hours by car. Your supper and overnight stay at Kubu Kubu are included.

Day 6-8: Northern Serengeti

Crazy Great Migration Mara River Crossing in Serengeti

The migratory herds usually visit the Northern sector between July and October, so it’s best to get an early start so you can drive into the Serengeti. A river crossing may be seen at this time if the herds are moving through the area. Your own vehicle and guide will transport you to the Nasikia Mobile Migration camp, where you will spend three nights. One of the top spots to witness wild big cats is Serengeti National Park. On a safari, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to spot magnificent animals like cheetahs, leopards, and lions. Discuss your schedule with your guide; you have the option of leaving camp for lunch after an early morning drive, or you can bring a picnic and spend the day exploring the plain. Throughout your stay, all of your meals will be provided.
