8 Day Great Serengeti Wildebeest Migration Safari

These 8 days Great Serengeti Wildebeest Safari is designed to see migration during calving season, which runs from December to April. The Lake Ndutu area, as well as the Southern and Central Serengeti National Park sections, where the majority of the wildebeest are generally located, will be covered. This trip also includes a visit to the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater. During your safari, you can expect to see large herds of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and other herbivores, as well as predators such as lions, leopards, and hyenas that follow the herds for their next meal. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit Maasai villages and learn about their culture and way of life. Your tour will include game drives through various parts of the Serengeti, including the famous Mara River crossing, where you can witness the wildebeest bravely crossing the river while avoiding crocodiles lurking in the water. At night, you’ll stay in comfortable lodges or campsites, and enjoy delicious meals while listening to the sounds of the wild. Overall, the 8-day Serengeti wildebeest migration safari promises an unforgettable adventure
