Witness nature's greatest spectacle on this immersive Serengeti safari
Get up close and personal with the great wildebeest migration and stay in comfortable tented camps in the remote and uncrowded wilderness
Every year, millions of wildebeest and zebras thunder across the vast Serengeti plains on the hunt for fresh water and grazing...as they say, the grass is always greener! Seeing this mesmerizing movement of Africa's iconic animals, followed closely by their predators, is a breathtaking experience.
The herds are constantly on the move between the southern and northern Serengeti plains, and their location throughout the year can generally be predicted very accurately. This means that your chances of witnessing this incredible natural spectacle on a tailor made Serengeti migration safari are very high indeed.
One of the joys of this unique Serengeti migration safari is being totally immersed in the pristine wilderness of the most famous national parks in Africa, and exploring the more remote corners where you'll encounter few other visitors.
This is an active eco-safari holiday with a difference, staying in a wonderful mixture of high end luxury lodges, and close-to-nature tented Green Camps.
