Explore Tanzania’s spectacular landscapes and wildlife treasures on this exceptional safari adventure which lends itself perfectly to Great Migration experiences. 

 

Witness the legendary elephant herds, tree-climbing lions and prolific birdlife of the richly diverse Lake Manyara National Park, set against a backdrop of dramatic lake and Rift Valley splendor.

 

Experience a landscape like no other – from the high-lying rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, look down onto this vast, natural amphitheater, a year-round wildlife haven.

Lose your heart among the boundless plains of the Serengeti, one of Africa’s most iconic safari destinations, where horizons know no end and endless chapters of the Great Migration play out.

Come this October – November, With the short rains come fresh grazing grounds. Following the rain, the herds move into the Serengeti from the now denuded grasslands of the Masai Mara.

Contrary to popular belief, early – mid October is still a phenomenal time to see the river crossings and so is even late October. Even if the light rains do come a bit early in late October and the herds do begin to push south, this takes a long time as there are so many of them. The chances are even if you are visiting the north in late October that a good few of the herds will still be lingering in the north and crossing the Mara River. October is an even quieter time of year than September and August to see the crossings and there are some seriously good deals in our favourite camps. In the office, we are forever torn, but many of us will say that October is our favourite time to see the migration. Aside from the park being quieter, it is desperately dry at this time of year, so the game viewing throughout the Serengeti is phenomenal as the animals congregate to the water areas. October is also a great time to catch some unbelievable predator action.
