10 Days Northern Tanzania Exclusive Safari (Journey for the Wildebeest Migration River Crossing)

This 10 day exclusive Northern Tanzania safari is a classical adventure to one of the most celebrated wildlife conservancies in Africa particularly in the wildlife extravaganza.

Tanzania host the second largest terrestrial mammal migration, The Great Wildebeest Migration which is one of the 7 natural wonders in Africa and one of the 10 natural wonders in the world at large. The wildebeest migration climax is during the River crossing where mammal grazers try to cross the crocodile-infested river, lying underwater in a long wait to catch their prey. The wildebeest migration river crossing in August moves north, passing through the Lobo area (north of Central Serengeti National Park) and the Wagakuria area (remote northern Serengeti National Park along the Mara River) en-route to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.
