Wildebeest Migration Safari in Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Manyara 6 Days

Day 1: After breakfast depart Moshi for Lake Manyara Park.

Your first view as you approach lake Manyara Park is very spectacular regardless of direction.  When you approach it from the east, the Rift Valley escarpment looms in the horizon forming an impressive back to the lake.  If you come from the west and pause at the top of the escarpment, the park lies in a green strip below you, the lake glistering in the sunlight.

  • Morning game drive in Lake Manyara Park
  • Picnic lunch in the park
  • Afternoon game drive in the park
  • Dinner and overnight at Twiga campsite

Day 2: After breakfast transfer to Serengeti national park

The park is teaming with stunning wildlife – it is thought that over 3 million large mammals roam the plains.  The extensive grasslands are interspersed with “Kopjes which are rocky outcries like islands in the flat plain, each with its own wildlife communities.

  • Picnic lunch enroute
  • Evening game drive around Seronera area
  • Dinner and overnight at Seronera campsite/lodge

Day 3: Sunrise adventure

It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps famous.  Over 1.5 million Wildebeests and approximately 400,000 zebras, take part in the migration which essentially involves three famous and important conservation areas – Serengeti and Ngorongoro in Tanzania and the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya.  It is a clockwise migratory movement during which sequence the animals start arriving at the eastern Serengeti short grass plains in late November – December where calving of the wildebeests takes place.  At this end of the long rains, the migration heads westcards and then turns month to reach Masai Mara reserve in late August – September.

  • Picnic lunch in the park
  • Afternoon game drive in the parl
  • Dinner and overnight at Seronera campsite/lodge

Day 4: After lunch transfer to Ngorongoro

Half – day morning game drove in the wordland areas towards the northern and western corridors.

Day 5: Morning adventure at the crater floor

The Simba campsite, situated at 2200 m above sea level is a very cold place at night and early in the morning.  We would like to advise you to take warm jackets with you for your comfortable stay there.  Ngorongoro crater is the 8th wonder of the world.  The grater is 12 miles wide, 2000 feet deep and covering an area of 102 square miles.  It is the largest intact volcanic crater on earth and home to a spectacular concentration of wildlife.
