Witness the magnificent wildebeest migration in Tanzania. From July through to September, see the thunderous herds as they head north from the western Serengeti into Kenya and the Masai Mara Game Reserve. By July the wildebeest begin to reach their first great obstacle – the river crossings. The breath-taking river crossings are filled with dramatic scenes as the depth of the water makes for treacherous crossings and hungry crocodiles are on standby, ready to take advantage of their distress.

During your safari trip, you will also visit the best of Tanzania's National Parks including Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the renowned Serengeti National Park.

It is famed for its large herds of elephants that wander across the plains and through groves of ancient baobab trees.  In addition to the great wildlife viewing, Tarangire is a paradise for bird lovers with over 300 species fluttering between the trees. At the end of two safari-filled days, relax at your chosen accommodation and take in the ambience of Tarangire National Park as the sun goes down.

It is time to visit beautiful Lake Manyara National Park.  Nearly two thirds of this scenic park is covered by the Lake Manyara.The lake itself is dotted with flocks of pink flamingo. Forests, woodlands, grassland and swamps border the blue waters. Lake Manyara is a hive of activity. On your game drive, keep an eye out for elephant, giraffe, hippo, buffalo, and zebra. Look skywards and you may spot some of the well-known tree-climbing lion!

The crater is made up of diverse ecosystems including soda lakes, wetlands and rolling savannah.
