12 Days Great Migration Safari in Tanzania

Tanzania's wildlife draws safari aficionados from around the world to see nature’s most humbling expression of tenacity – the Great Migration! The Serengeti offers the unique opportunity to watch staggering numbers of wildebeest and zebra continuously search for verdant grazing land, which takes them across the large expanse of the Serengeti Plains, and through multiple rivers as they cross back and forth between Tanzania and Kenya. Designed for travelers who strive to glean a deeper understanding and connection with Tanzania, this itinerary takes you to the lesser-known Tarangire National Park as well as into traditional Maasai villages, the famous Ngorongoro Crater, and of course, the iconic Serengeti National Park!


  • Explore the Ngorongoro Crater, home to over 25,000 animals.
  • Get up close to herds of elephants trumpeting in Tarangire.
  • Enjoy meals under the vibrant Milky Way in the Serengeti.
  • Follow in the footsteps of thousands of animals in the Great Migration.
  • Track one of the world’s most spectacular displays of nature, the Great Migration in the Serengeti.
