The Savannah grasslands, this is where the first humans originated from. Known as the Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania it is a huge national park extending into Kenya that is known as Masai Mara. Serengeti is derived from the Masai language and it means “endless plains”. And truly endless it is to get lost not just physically but in its beauty. It hosts the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world. Approximately, 70 large mammal and 500 bird species are found here. Wildebeests, gazelles, zebras and buffalos some of the commonly found mammals. Of course there is the big five as well – lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros.

The quicker we humans learn that saving open space and wildlife is critical to our welfare and quality of life, maybe we’ll start thinking of doing something about it.

We have many itineraries for you to suit your need that may include safari in Tanzania, Kenya or both the countries. You may want to add a twist to it with Zanzibar and of course Kilimanjaro as well.
The following are some of the itineraries that we have. You could write to us if you want to further customise it just for you.

Safari Highlights:

1/ Interaction with Masai tribe in their village.
2/ Hot air balloon safari over Serengeti (Optional).
3/ Night game drive conducted at Ikoma (just outside the gate of Serengeti National Park (Optional).

Note on Migration:

From December to March the Wildebeest migration congregates around Ndutu, in the far south of the Serengeti.
From April to May, the Wildebeest migration moves North into the plains of the central Serengeti.
Between June and July the Wildebeest migration splits in two; one group goes West into the Western Corridor before crossing the Grumeti River, the other heads directly to the North of the Serengeti passing near Klein’s Camp.
From August to October the herd has reformed, and meanders on the Kenya and Tanzania border , along the banks of the mighty Mara River. returning south from the beginning of November.
One of the sights to watch during migration is the river crossing and if lucky altercation between the crocodiles and the Wildebeest. If you are lucky, you would be able to the see the river crossing at Grumeti and Mara river.

During this crossing, hundreds of animals are swept away by the first moving Mara River and others are killed by the ferocious African Crocodiles. This crossing gives true meaning to the phrase “Survival of the fittest”.
