Once a year you can witness one of nature’s most spectacular events known as The Great Migration. Millions of wildebeests, zebras and antelopes flood the plains of the Serengeti to start their long and arduous journey to the greener, richer land of the Masai Mara National Reserve.
As the adults march on, the wildebeest calf’s frolic next to their parents in this grueling and dangerous journey north, unaware of the perils that lie ahead. Lions and other big cats prowl in their shadows waiting to pick off any that fall behind whilst crocodiles lay low in the waters of the Grumeti River ready to snap at any given moment. Laughing hyenas stalk on the sidelines and wild dogs howl in the distance in this epic collision of prey and predator under the dramatic sky of Tanzania.
Through the thundering rains and the scorching sun the migration continues, many will perish along the route but some will survive to enjoy the lush grass and opulent waters of the beautiful Masai Mara Plains. This is one of nature’s greatest offerings to the world of man keen to witness the overwhelming display of the natural world and the hunt for survival.
Tanzania’s stunning south, though perhaps not as well-known as the Northern Circuit, is diverse, beautiful, packed with game and well worth exploring. This particular itinerary is perfect for those looking for a Destination out of Dar Es Salaam, and for those who wish to take a relaxing beach extension in Zanzibar after their wildlife adventure!
