All about the Best of the Serengeti.

Overview

The Serengeti is a name firmly embedded within the safari culture of both days gone by and the modern era. It has inspired filmmakers, drawn in countless wildlife photographers and romanced lovers from all around the world. It is a constant source of inspiration with an abundance of natural beauty that’s never seems to wither. The Serengeti stands alone in it’s marvelous ability to deliver an extraordinary encounter with Africa’s wildlife unlike any other and our Serengeti Migration Safari offers you the perfect way in which to experience it.

We begin our 2020 Serengeti Migration Safari experience in Tarangire National Park. The park is rich in game viewing experiences and as the dry season approaches more wildlife from the surrounding region will move in towards the park’s all-year round water source.
There’s fantastic scenery to be enjoyed here, and it will offer guests a fantastic start to their Serengeti safari experience.

Tarangire lies at the base of the Ngorongoro Crater, and this will be our second destination. This wildlife haven is a bucket-list destination for just about every avid nature lover & wildlife photographer. The crater floor is bonanza of wildlife & vistas, you’ll find it hard to pry your camera from your face! Many rumors have been spread about the “over utilization” of the park by too many visitors, but we can assure you that it needs to be seen to be appreciated. It’s simply spectacular.

Ndutu & its surrounds will be our third stop. We will enjoy 4 nights here and the days will center around the migratory herds consisting of over 2 million animals. They come to rest and give birth in the region generally west from Kilimanjaro and we base our safari within the hotspot that is Ndutu. This region is also very well known for the tree-climbing lions, found within the vicinity of the Ndutu Lakes.

We finish this safari off in big cat country within the eastern Serengeti.
This exclusive expanse of the Serengeti is where the acacia woodlands borders the great savannah, attracting herbivore masses of elephant, giraffe, zebra, warthog and more. This diversity means predators abound, including quality sightings of lion, leopard, cheetah & hyenas. Our focus will be to spend time with predators on the hunt.
To add to the beauty & variety of the region, there’s also a group of rocky outcrops or “kopjes”, known to house prides of lions as well as some leopard.

By combining these 4 fine wildlife destinations in to a 13 day safari experience you’ll get to see the best the Serengeti has to offer. Each destination promises something new & exciting, and there will be no time to put your camera down on this safari experience.

With 2 Wild Eye guides dedicated to you, and only 3 guests per safari game viewer, you need not look any further for your next African safari adventure.
