Tour Overview

This safari has been designed specifically to focus and to increase the chance to see the great Serengeti Northern Serengeti Wildebeest Migration. We have designed the itinerary to include both Lobo area (area north of the central Serengeti National Park) and Wagakuria area (remote northern-Serengeti National Park). From mid-July to October, the migration heads north, out of the central Serengeti, splitting into two routes. The main group heads into the western corridor crossing Grumeti River in spectacular stampedes. Enormous crocodiles wait patiently to snatch wildebeests as they cross the river the wildebeests continue to move steadily across Grumeti region, making another perilous river crossing to cross the Mara River and reach the grazing in Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
