Moving five times a year the camps attempt to anticipate the movements of the Great Migration, bringing guests as close as possible to the wildebeest action, as well as exploring the magnificent resident game. This luxury safari takes in the highlights of Tanzania, from the dramatic landscapes of Lake Manyara to the endless plains of the Serengeti and the magnificent views of the Ngorongoro Crater. Watch out for the famous tree-climbing lions and admire endless flocks of flamingoes on the shores of Lake Manyara. Discover the abundant resident wildlife of the Serengeti or experience the massed game of the annual Great Migration, with its thundering hordes of zebra and wildebeest.
A scheduled air transfer will take you from Arusha Airport to an airstrip in the Serengeti, where a lodge representative will welcome you and drive you to the camp. This exclusive camp has Meru-style tented suites with en-suite bathrooms and a safari-style bucket shower. The main tent has a shared dining area and a fireplace, and another tent has a library and bar area where you can enjoy a leisurely afternoon or evening.
Following in the footsteps of the thousands of wildlife, the camp follows the migration in a pre-planned seasonal movement to allow prime game viewing opportunities (The camp will not move during your stay). The operation of this mobile camp is eco-friendly with careful attention placed on conserving the environment.
Game viewing takes place in specialized closed 4x4 safari vehicles allowing you to record great wildlife encounters clearly. Your trained and experienced safari guide will ensure that your morning and afternoon game drives are conducted safely and that you get maximum game viewing opportunities.
The Great Migration occurs in cyclic stages. The calving season from December to March each year sees the migration of wildebeest and zebra in the southern Serengeti. From late February to March the birth of half a million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle occurs. During April and May, it is the rutting season, the great herds are on the move, traversing the south central Serengeti as they start to head north. June and July there is more urgency to find good grazing and water as the migration enters the Serengeti Western Corridor. Here they encounter their first serious barrier, the Grumeti River with its huge crocodiles waiting patiently for their annual feast. August to November, the migration has reached the northern range of the Serengeti bordered by the Mara River, which poses a massive barrier to transverse in order to find the sweet grass on the other side.
cheetah on the lookoutAt each stage of the migration, there are the ever-present predators stalking, hunting and following the migration as far as their territories allow. Plus of course, the plains are shared by elephants, buffalo, giraffe and other antelopes.
An air transfer will take you from a bush airstrip in the Serengeti to Arusha Airport, where you will meet your onward travel arrangements.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
