Tour Overview

This safari draws on years of experience to help you enjoy the ultimate Tanzania safari, witnessing the wildebeest migration crossing the Mara River. Our team made this trip for people with a very limited budget but are in love with nature and want to witness this remarkable natural spectacle This tour is very flexible and is targeted to witness the wildebeest migration, which is determined by the weather and time of year. Available from June to early December, the ultimate time to travel on this safari is July to October. We can organise a cheaper option by changing the two nights in the Serengeti from tented camps to budget camping style.

After breakfast you will embark on another full-day game drive in the Serengeti National Park. You will try to follow migration groups around the Mara River area. Some of the wildebeest groups don’t cross the river and you might catch them around the river. This will depend much on the unpredictable weather. For two nights you stay at a mobile bush camp in the Mara River area, which moves seasonally in time with the movement of the migration.
