One of Tanzania’s best fact is that, nearly half of the Mara River is situated in the Northern Serengeti (Kogatende area). The Mara river crossing is the most-awaited phenomenon where millions of wildebeests move from one place to another in search of greener pastures and water. You will also encounter herds of zebras and gazelles huddling across the plains and volcanic grasslands of Serengeti.
This experience is packed with action, as the migration herds undergo all manner of challenges to cross the River where there are so many Nile crocodiles, they’re also constantly under attack from other predators, none more than Africa’s big cats – Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. You will get to see other animals like Elands, elephants, rare black Rhinos, etc.
The river crossings is like watching a live National Geographic documentary thus It’s a global phenomenon that happens only in a certain period of time within a year, the Hippo View points at the river oxbow is also amazing.
Tips for Planning Migration Safari
- Book early – at least a year or 6 months in advance because lodges/camps fill up fast, especially for Migration seasons (June to September).
- Arrange your timing carefully. The Migration is a year-round journey and some of its stages, like the river crossing is unpredictable. So by knowing where to go and what you need to see and experience, let us know your thoughts as early as possible so we can make arrangements that suits your requirements.
- Fly-in/out itineraries – There are dedicated airstrips that service most of Tanzania’s national parks and game reserves, fly-in/out of the parks-eliminate the need for long distance drive during safari.
