The migration involves more than 1.5 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras, gazelles, and other grazing animals.
TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK | HIGHVIEW HOTEL
You will be impressed with Tarangire National Park. Most visitors love the distinct shapes of the
baobab trees silhouetted against the sky, making this place feel like a fairy-tale African landscape. Or
visitors remember the elephants that roam in family bands everywhere throughout the park. If you’re lucky,
you’ll also encounter the big cats – lions especially, cheetahs and leopards – that are always possible here. And there’s a fair degree of certainty that you will tick wildebeest, giraffe, hippo, buffalo, and zebra off your wildlife-viewing list.

SERENGETI | IKOMA WILD CAMP
Welcome to the Unesco World Heritage-listed Serengeti, one of Africa’s top safari destinations. While
you’re here. There’s an excellent chance that you’ll see leopards along the dry riverbanks, cheetahs out on the grasslands, and elephants, giraffes, and all kinds of antelopes everywhere across the park. Watch also for the Serengeti’s famous lion prides. And that’s just the start. Some of the planet’s largest and most diverse wildlife populations roam the Serengeti, not to mention millions of wildebeest and zebras, which migrate across the plains yearly.

SERENGETI | SERENGETI WILDEBEEST CAMP
The great wildebeest migration follows a circular pattern, with the animals moving clockwise around the Serengeti ecosystem. The migration is driven by the need for the animals to find fresh grazing and water and is closely tied to the seasonal rains. The wildebeest typically give birth to their calves in February; by June, the herds start to move north in search of greener pastures. They cross the Mara River into Kenya in July or August, staying until October or November before returning south to Tanzania. The migration is difficult for the animals, as they must navigate through predators such as lions, hyenas, and crocodiles. It is also a popular time for tourists to visit the Serengeti, as they can witness this incredible natural spectacle up close.

NGORONGORO CRATER | SPRINGLANDS HOTEL
Ngorongoro is a special place, and the first time you descend onto the crater floor is like no other safari
experience in Africa. This is a world unto itself, one where you’ll encounter the crater’s 600-strong
population of hyenas, as well as critically endangered black rhinos. You’ll also find elephants with larger-than-average tusks and more than 50 lions living in the crater. But the sheer beauty of Ngorongoro
will most likely live longest in your memory. From early morning, mist rises from the crater, revealing steep,
forested walls, sheltered waterways where hippos wallow, and a world of abundant wildlife hidden away from the rest of the world. This marks the end of your safari in Tanzania. We hope you enjoyed your trip and are planning your next safari.
You will be driven to Springlands Hotel in Moshi, or a Hotel in Moshi or Arusha.
