  • Explore Tarangire National Park, Tanzania's premier birding destination
  • Discover the less visited Northern Serengeti Marvel at Ngorongoro's natural amphitheatre

Crafted for those interested in experiencing Tanzania's great migration, which takes place between July to October, this six-day, guided tour starts with a trip to Tarangire National Park, home to over 500 avian species. Next on the itinerary is the iconic Serengeti, specifically its northern section, which will be your home for three nights. Compared with the national park's southern plains, the northern side is quiet, beautiful and much more pristine. Plus, it is wetter than the southern section, and wildebeests fatten themselves on its grasslands before the odyssey begins. Enjoy numerous game drives in Serengeti and soak up the sights of acres of woodlands spread out over hills and sprawling plains. The final destination on your itinerary is Ngorongoro, a natural wonder like none other. Your accommodation during this trip will mostly be in modern, large, two-men tents with a sewn-in ground sheet covered with a comfortable foam mattress. Please note that a table, chairs and mats are provided along with the tent, but sleeping bags, blankets, sheets and towels are not included.
