Mara River Crossing Tanzania safari Itinerary
A private safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro
Nowhere in the world is there a movement of animals like the wildebeest migration, over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya from July through to October. What a beautiful Tanzania Safari Itinerary
July is usually when the wildebeest herds begin moving faster in search of water and greener grass, making their way across the Grumeti and Mara Rivers. October is a good time to see the wildebeest herds move back into the Serengeti and warm weather can be expected.

Tanzania is, without a doubt, a fabulous introduction to Africa and all things safari. It’s the largest country in East Africa, and almost a third of the vast lands are protected for game viewing, so safari opportunities are endless and always exciting. And no description of a Tanzania safari would be complete without a mention of the Great Migration in the Serengeti, one of the natural world’s most spectacular wildlife shows.
After breakfast, transfer to Arusha airstrip for your flight to Serengeti North which will depart at 08:00 and arrive at 09:55. Serengeti, among other incredible wildlife and stunning views, is famed for the annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and a hundred thousand zebras, a frenzied bout of territorial conquests and mating happening from July-October. Witness an actual survival of the fittest as these animals plunge through crocodile-infested waters. The wildebeest produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again.
We have a full day for game viewing around this area. The Northern Serengeti remains an unexplored wilderness packed with stunning landscapes and a large number of wildlife. The most captivating highlight of this area is undoubtedly the massive herds of migratory wildebeest and zebra during the dry season. However, the North Serengeti also supports abundant resident wildlife including lions, elephants, hippos, giraffes, crocodiles, and the rare oribi antelope. The best vantage points and worthwhile areas are chosen to give you the best possible chance to observe animals and capture the perfect photo. With fluctuations in rainfall, the animal yearly timetable circle can change resulting from that the animals migrate during different times and routes. Your guide will know where and when to find the animals and will make sure that you can see the animals from the best spot in the national park.
After breakfast move to central Serengeti. Game drive en route and enjoy all the amazing and scenic views and the wildlife along the way, on your way to central Serengeti there are enough adventures to experience. The central Serengeti is home to the beautiful Seronera Valley. Several rivers run through this valley enabling many resident animals to be found all year round. The combination of location and resident prey attracts the largest populations of predators in Africa. It is this amazing abundance and diversity of easily seen large predators that attracts thousands of visitors and hundreds of researchers to the Seronera River valley each year.
After breakfast drive enjoys the game drive to the central Serengeti in the afternoon start a drive to Ngorongoro enjoy the game en route to Ngorongoro reach the Ngorongoro highlands check in to your Accommodation for relaxation dinner and overnight. The Ngorongoro Conservation The area spans vast expanses of highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands, and forests, from the plains of the Serengeti National Park in the northwest to the eastern arm of the Great Rift Valley. It is known as a multiple land use area, with wildlife coexisting with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists practicing traditional livestock grazing. It includes the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera, and Olduvai Gorge. With the density of wildlife inhabiting the Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding areas throughout the year, and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, Thompson’s, and Grant’s gazelles Ngorongoro Crater is a world heritage site, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera, and is commonly referred to as the 8th wonder of the world. The 2,000 feet high walls of the approximately 10-mile-wide Crater form a natural amphitheater for the densest populations of large animals anywhere. The Crater is truly awe-inspiring and game viewing here is among the very best Africa has to offer. After breakfast, we descend to the floor of the world’s largest unbroken caldera.
