Serengeti Migration Safari

Tabbed Group

Overview

Picture it: Thousands upon thousands of hooves stampeding across the streams and grasslands of the Serengeti in search of grazing grounds. Now imagine yourself live and on the scene as one of nature’s greatest events unfolds right before your eyes. This unforgettable seven-day Serengeti safari makes it a reality, bringing you to the majestic Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, and beyond to track the "big five." You’ll also get an insider’s glimpse of life on the plains from the residents of a remote Maasai village. The migration itself can be unpredictable, but here’s one thing you can bank on: you’ll come home a different person than when you left.
