8 Days Great Wildebeest Migration Safari

Hop on the amazing Great Wildebeest Safari, an 8-day trip designed to catch the incredible Great Serengeti Wildebeest migration. It happens from December to April when the wildebeests have their babies. We’ll check out the Lake Ndutu area, plus the Southern and Central Serengeti National Park spots where most wildebeests hang out. And don’t forget a visit to the famous Ngorongoro Crater!

Over 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles also live in the Serengeti. They follow the wildebeests looking for new food. Imagine hearing the sound of more than 6 million hooves pounding the grasslands—it’s African wildlife at its best!
