This 9-Day Wildebeest Migration and Big 5 Safari will take you to the Great Migration. The wildebeest gather by the thousands in the Northern Serengeti and start to crisscross over the Mara River. A river crossing is a truly phenomenal sigh. The stuff of wildlife documentaries. In the dry season month of October, vast herds of wildebeest and zebra will converge on Mara River in Tanzania’s northern Serengeti.

  • What better way to witness the Great Migration than in a hot air ballon. Remain undisturbed as you watch the grand spectacle from above.
  • Head to the Mara River for unbeatable wildlife sightings as the animals tackle their hardest challenge of crossing the river safely.
  • Feel like part of the herd on a horseback riding safari. Experience a unique perspective as the animals see you as one of their own.
  • Track the migrating herds with a jeep and witness Mother Nature in action as lions use the collation of impala to their advantage.
