Great Migration Safaris 365

Every year, over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle move across the plains of Tanzania and Kenya in search of fresh grazing, water and breeding grounds, with predators hot on their heels. This dramatic journey is the natural instinct for survival in action. The most important part of planning a Great Migration safari to Africa is to understand the different stages of the migration, and what time of year and where you can see the migratory herds as they travel – something Safari365 can assist with thanks to years of experience and close ties within the lodge and safari communities in these regions. Travellers should keep in mind though that the Great Migration is dependent on rainfall and doesn’t follow the same precise route every year. Because this trip is so popular, it is also essential to plan well in advance as suitable accommodation (in the right areas at the right times) is booked months ahead. Although it is far from a definite science, the best time to plan your Great Migration safari is six to 12 months before you intend to travel. This booking window offers the most accurate location predictions, while still allowing time to reserve accommodation at the best camps and lodges in the region.
