Tanzania Migration Special (February itinerary)



From $ 5455

The annual migration of the wildebeest represents the single largest movement of wildlife on planet earth. Dramatic, awe-inspiring, comic and tragic alike, it has been dubbed the “Eighth Wonder of the Natural World” and the “Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth”. Neither title does full justice to the enormity and grandeur of an event that sees multiple herds of 20,000 and more wildebeest careering across the glory of the African savannah in great galloping chains of blue-black creatures.

Wildlife Highlights: wildebeest, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, hippos, crocodiles, zebra, antelope, gazelle, impala, waterbuck, topi, eland, plains game, giraffe, black and white rhino.

Accommodation: Mount Meru Hotel, Acacia Tarangire Luxury Camp, Ngorongoro Serena Lodge, Baobab Serengeti Camp (or similar camp), Chaka Camp - LDBB

About the migration:
An ever-revolving cycle of birth, life and death, the 800km path of the migration is dictated by the hunt for fresh grass and consequently covers both the Serengeti National Reserve of Tanzania and the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya. For this, exceptionally focused safari, however, our progress is dictated by the movement of the migration itself. As a result, we follow over a million wildebeest, half a million zebra and an accompanying cast of predators through some uniquely different eco-spheres. If you arrive in September, we travel north to follow the herds as they plunge across the Mara River. In either case, this safari travels by road and is accompanied by our experienced driver guides of the highest proficiency.

The actual timing of the migration, however, is dictated by the weather and does not always run to schedule.


DAY 1 - Arrival in Arusha

When you arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you’ll be met by your customer service representative. You’ll be taken to Arusha, situated at the foot of Mount Meru, where you’ll check into Mount Meru Hotel. You can enjoy dinner (not included) at the hotel.

DAY 2 - Drive to Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, you’ll drive to the Tarangire National Park and arrive at the Tarangire Acacia Luxury Camp (or similar camp). Enjoy an early lunch, followed by an afternoon game drive through the Tarangire National Park, which is second only to the Ngorongoro Crater as a dry-season sanctuary for vast herds of migratory creatures. Dinner will be served at the camp. Distance/drive time: 175 km / 3.5 hours

DAY 3 - Drive to the Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, you’ll leave the campe and head to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Ngorongoro Crater , a World Heritage Site, is also one of the largest volcanic craters in the world (almost 20km wide, 610-760m deep and covering a total area of 264 square kilometres). An utterly unique biosphere, the crater harbours grasslands, swamps, forests, saltpans, a freshwater lake and a glorious variety of birdlife, all enclosed within its towering walls. Enjoy an afternoon game drive with picnic lunch on the crater floor. At sunset you’ll ascent and head towards your Ngorongoro Serena Lodge for check in and dinner. Distance/drive time: 150 km / 3 hours

DAY 4 - Drive to the Serengeti National Park (Seronera / Central Area)

You’ll depart after breakfast and drive to the Serengetic via the Olduvai Gorge, one of the world’s most important Palaeolithic sites, where you’ll check in at Baobab Serengeti Camp (or similar camp). After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive, and then return to the camp for dinner. Distance/drive time: 185km / 4 hours

DAY 5 & 6 - On safari in the Serengeti Central

Enjoy two full days on safari in one of the world’s most famous reserves. The Serengeti, whose Maasai name “Siringet” translates to “the endless plains”, offers unparallel ornithological opportunities and an unrivalled natural area.

DAY 7, 8 & 9 - On safari in the Serengeti North

After the first phase of our experience in the central Serengeti, we move to the Ndutu and Northern Serengeti areas in February and September respectively as we explore these migration spots for chances with the best experiences of part of the greater migration.

    Reputed to be the easiest of the available routes, this is without doubt the most comfortable in terms of facilities and the most convenient in terms of access. Also known as the “Coca Cola Route” because of its practicality, the Marangu Route is by far the most popular one for many climbers.


    Once championed as the discerning wilderness route for climbers, Machame is gaining on Marangu in terms of popularity. It’s also the second-most accessible trailhead of the non-steep routes making it more attractive to visitors.


    Offering ultimate value-for-money, this tour showcases Kenya’s most famous park, the Masai Mara, before crossing into Tanzania’s mighty Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. The safari accommodation features a fine selection of small tented safari camps.
