Tanzania, the Great Migration
The package we will organize for you will be tailored to your personal needs and interests. This means that every trip will be different, which makes it hard to provide a sample trip itinerary. Nevertheless, in order to inspire you, we will try to give you some useful ideas.
Example itinerary: 10 day Tanzania, the Great Migration
During this 10 day itinerary you will travel with your own group and a personal guide, driving a 4WD safari vehicle. The emphasis is on visits to wildlife parks and hopfully see something of the great migration! The great wildebeest migration is the movement of the Serengeti's wildebeest, accompanied by large numbers of zebra, and smaller numbers of Grant's gazelle, Thompson's gazelle, eland and impala. They migrate throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh grazing and, it's now thought, better quality water. The precise timing of the Serengeti wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year. We will advise you where to be at what time.
