The Great Wildebeest Migration, safaris and tropical beaches
In Tanzania, the safari experience is lived in many parts of the country. Few destinations in Africa can compete with the diversity of wildlife and landscapes that Tanzania possesses. It boasts classic African safari destinations like Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro, and also boasts beaches and coral reefs in Zanzibar.
A safari in Tanzania combined with the beaches of Zanzibar is a total adventure.
Incredible views of animals throughout the year, the great migration of wildebeest and tropical beaches are some of the best reasons to travel to Tanzania at the hands of specialists such as Aventura Africa.
We recommend that you witness the great migration of wildebeest.
Hardly any other destination in the world can boast a wildlife encounter as brutal as the annual wildebeest migration. It is the central claim of the most unique safari itineraries that one can live in Tanzania, since the great migration is an amazing display of nature at its most extraordinary.
Around 2 million wildebeest, zebra and antelope run around trying to avoid predators as they migrate around the Serengeti Mara ecosystem in search of fresh grass. This impressive event is one of the last massive movements of terrestrial animals that still persist on the planet.
The herds of animals during the great migration in Tanzania are so large that they can even be seen from space.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s flagship conservation area, hosts most of the great migration.
The availability of well located safari camps between June and October (river crossing season) is limited. If you want front row seats to the spectacular river crossings, you should book your Tanzania safari at least a year in advance.
You can also go when the herds calve and graze across the plains, which is just as impressive to watch but easier to secure, plus the tourist crowds are smaller. Talk to one of our Africa Safari experts at Aventura Africa to plan your trip to Tanzania to coincide with the great migration.
Our Tanzania safari specialists know the country inside out and can offer you the best experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
