7Days Great Wildebeest Migration Safari

Wildebeest migration Safari is Very good and I really recommend it to anyone.

7Days Great Wildebeest Migration Safari

This River crossing 7 days northern Serengeti migration tours is primarily focusing on “Great Wildebeest Migration” when crossing the Mara River to the Masai Mara game reserve in southern Kenya from Northern Serengeti, Kogatende area. The best time to see the crossing is between late July and beginning of September. Over 2.5 million wildebeests, accompanied by zebras and gazelles, cross Mara River back and forth during this time of the year. Seeing the crossing is a guarantee because of climate change that we have no control of. But, once you confirm your booking, our experts will advise you the best dates within the months mentioned above. This safari also includes the visit to cultural village and a walk to crater rim..

Itinerary:

Day 0:

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), our representative will meet you and transfer you to your hotel for an overnight stay. Your professional safari guide will brief you during dinner on various aspects of your itinerary. Lodging: Mvuli Hotel (Breakfast)

Day 1: Arusha City – Mto Wa Mbu Biking Excursion – Manyara National Park

You will depart early to Lake Manyara National Park for biking excursion in Mto Wa Mbu village, followed by hot local lunch. After lunch, we will proceed to Manyara NP for game drive. The park is green throughout the year because of its underground water sources. Its verdant color attracts hundreds of spectacular varieties of migratory and wetland birds flying overhead. It also attracts huge populations of flamingos because its shallow alkaline-saline (salt) soda lake creates an ideal environment for microorganisms to grow that these flamingos feed upon. Manyara’s natural habitat also includes large troops of baboons, velvet monkeys, blue monkeys, tree-climbing lions, hippos, giraffes, zebras, buffalos, warthogs, impalas, Thomson-gazelles, and Grant gazelles. Leopards, cheetahs, rock/tree hyrax, kudus, elands, bushbucks, waterbucks, and dik-diks also live in this park. If you are not interested in biking you can choose one of the activities below;

  • Forest Hike (2.5 to 3hrs)
  • Nature Walk (1hr to 1.5hrs)
  • Village Walk (2.5 to 3hrs)

Later in the evening, we drive to the lodge for evening leisure and hot dinner. Lodging: Karatu Kudu Lodge (3 Meals)

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, we proceed to the endless Serengeti plains by way of the lush Ngorongoro Crater Highlands where fertile soils grow crops such as wheat, corn and coffee. The name “Serengeti” comes from the Maasai word ‘siringeti’ which means “endless plains”. You will see why it’s called so once you see its ocean of grassland savannas stretching to the horizon as far as the eyes can see. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest and most well-preserved on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation, fauna and flora have barely changed over the past million years. The patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves. Later in the evening, we drive to the camp for evening leisure and hot dinner. Lodging: Kati Kati Tented Camp (3 Meals)

Day 3: Serengeti Central – Serengeti North

After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch to northern Serengeti Kogatende area following the great migration at Mara River. The game drive will be along the Mara River and other interesting places in the north where the big groups of wildebeests will be at that particular time. After the full day of game drive, we will drive to the camp for evening leisure and hot dinner. Lodging: Serengeti Wilderness Camp (3 Meals)

Day 4: Northern Serengeti

Full day of game drive along Mara River following the great migration; arrive at the camp for evening leisure and hot dinner. Lodging: Serengeti Wilderness Camp (3 Meals)

Day 5: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater Rim Walk

After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch for a final game drive in Serengeti NP. After lunch, we will drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the edge of the crater rim, the crater appears half a mile below, inviting you to gaze at this jaw dropping natural wonders. The Ngorongoro Crater opens up a half mile below you from its rim. When you reach its edge and view its 100 square mile expanse, it is a sight to behold. Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest volcano caldera formed three million years ago and is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, and one of Africa’s most remarkable geological sites. A caldera is a volcano in which water has leached through the soil and rocks below the volcanic cone has caused it to drop to the bottom of the former mountain. We will get out of the safari jeep to enjoy the view while having a walking safari along the crater rim for an hour. Afterwards, you will proceed to the lodge for evening leisure and hot dinner. Lodging: Ngorongoro Rhino lodge (3 Meals)

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater– Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, we drive to the Ngorongoro Crater and descend into it for game viewing. Ngorongoro Crater was formed over 3 million years ago. It is inhabited by a unique ecosystem of more than 25,000 animals. In the grass steppes and Acacia forest, you will find almost every type of animal from the East African savanna. The Big Five (rhino, elephant, cape buffalo, lion, leopard) and most of the animal species found in the Serengeti, including zebra, hippos, wildebeest, and cheetahs can be viewed close up. The Ngorongoro Crater ecosystem maintains the historic balance between people and nature in a way that is not possible in other parks. After lunch, ascend and proceed to Tarangire for evening leisure and hot dinner. Lodging: Maramboi Tented Camp (3 Meals)

Day 7 – Tarangire – Kilimanjaro International Airport

Early breakfast, then depart to Tarangire NP for game viewing. Tarangire National Park has the highest concentration of elephants in North – Tanzania and you can view these animals all year round where elephant herd populations can reach as many as 3,000. The Tarangire River has water all year round. During the dry season (July-October), many animals from the surrounding areas come to the river to drink. If you visit the park during the dry season, you will witness an unforgettable natural wonder as you observe exotic big mammals such as lions, giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras and various types of antelopes such as gazelles. During the dry season, Tarangire is a haven for bird watchers with over 550 different species, including the Maasai Ostrich-the world’s largest bird. Around lunchtime, you will stop at a suitable picnic place.
