An 8 day migration safari is a unique experience.
This 8 day migration safari is focused on experiencing the mass movement of wildlife within the Serengeti eco-system. The migration activity is a unique wildlife spectacle which can be seen in different areas within the Serengeti for most of the year. From the comfort of your safari vehicle watch masses of wildebeest and zebra, followed by hungry predators and scavengers looking for a meal.
Arrival hotel night (bed & breakfast), 6 nights tented camps & lodges (full-board)
Arrive in to Kilimanjaro airport (JRO) for transfer to your hotel for overnight (breakfast).
Your safari driver/guide will join you after breakfast to begin the journey west to enter Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Enjoy a short afternoon game drive before arriving at the lodge on the crater rim for dinner and overnight (lunch, dinner, breakfast).
After breakfast, drive across the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the route to Serengeti national park. The drive offers many opportunities for leisurely wildlife viewing, especially sightings of the ‘big five’. Arrive at your tented camp early evening. The location of the camp will be near the migration activity (lunch, dinner, breakfast).
Day 4, 5 & 6.
Taking a picnic lunch, enjoy three full days following the migrating herds and enjoying the Serengeti environment. The game drive each day will depend on the location and activities of the wildlife. Each evening return to the tented camp for overnight (lunch, dinner, breakfast).
Expect an early wake up call to start your day with a dawn game drive; a time of much activity in the bush. Return to the tented camp for breakfast. After breakfast, leave the Serengeti to return through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, enjoying wildlife viewing en-route. Stop for a picnic lunch at Oldovai Gorge. The site is referred to as ‘the cradle of mankind’ after Dr. Louis Leakey in 1959 discovered the skull of Zinjanthropus or ‘Nutcracker Man’, believed to have lived 1.75 million years ago. The journey ends at the lodge on the crater rim (lunch, dinner, breakfast).
In the morning descend the steep sided track to the floor of Ngorongoro Crater. Your morning game drive exploring the caldera offers many opportunities for watch the activities of the wildlife. After enjoying a picnic lunch, leave the crater and drive east to Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) to join your evening international departure flight.
