The Tanzania Special Migration Safari will take you to the world’s largest wildlife movement, the yearly migration of wildebeest. This amazing show has been named “The World’s Greatest Show” and “The Eighth Wonder of the Natural World.” Many herds of hoofed animals are accompanied by a variety of predators as they forage for fresh pasture.
We organise the safari’s direction/flow based on where the activities will be depending on the time of year you join us for a safari. This one is great in August and September.
