SAFARI ITINERARY Overview

Begin with an extraordinary 8-day safari adventure in Tanzania, centered around witnessing the spectacular Wildebeest Migration—an awe-inspiring natural phenomenon that showcases the raw beauty and drama of the African wilderness. This carefully crafted itinerary by Superior African Safari takes you on a journey through Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro, offering unparalleled wildlife encounters, cultural experiences, and comfortable accommodations amidst breathtaking landscapes.

Calving Season (December-March): Witness the birthing of thousands of wildebeest calves, attracting predators in a feeding frenzy.Grasslands Grazing (April-June): The herds move northwest, feasting on the lush grasses.River Crossings (July-October) One of the most exhilarating parts of the Great Migration is the Mara River crossing. Thousands of wildebeests gather at the riverbank, hesitant but driven by the need for greener pastures on the other side. As they plunge into the water, crocodiles lurk beneath, and predators await on the far bank. It’s a heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat moment that epitomizes the circle of life. The most iconic and dramatic phase, as the herds brave crocodile-infested rivers like the Mara River.Return Journey (November): The herds head south, completing the cycle.
