7 Days Tanzania Journey of the Wildebeest Migration Safari – Mid-Range Tour

This is a very special 7 Days Tanzania Journey of the Wildebeest Migration Safari that concentrates on the Serengeti, to follow the great migration. You will spend at least 4 nights in the park, usually two in the Central Area (the largest concentration of big cats) and two where the migration is according to the time of the year.

We have designed this particular tour so that you finish the safari in the most remote location in the Serengeti, and then fly from there to your next destination. But we can redesign it to return to Arusha by land.

On this day, we suggest a very early wake-up call in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. It’s really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the game drive, we will return to the camp for a rewarding brunch. Then we’ll proceed to the airstrip for your flight back to Arusha, or whatever your next amazing destination might be (i.e. Zanzibar). Alternatively, instead of this early morning game drive, you may choose to stay at the camp for a bit of relaxation.
