Tanzania is an East African country best known for its vast wilderness areas. Tanzania is home to two of the most iconic safari destinations in Africa; the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. These destinations have attracted several wildlife safaris in Tanzania.
The vast plains of Serengeti National Park are home to the Great Migration, an annual event that sees massive herds of wildebeests follow the rains to greenier and tastier pastures. The Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive and unfilled volcanic caldera, is home to a huge variety of wildlife.
While most Tanzania safari visitors flock to Tanzania’s northern parks, the countries south is rich with game reserves. Southern Tanzania is home to one of the largest reserves in the world; Selous Game Reserve, which is nearly four times the size of Serengeti National Park and it’s even wilder. Safari Tanzania and swim in a variety of Tanzania wildlife safaris.
Would you wish to witness the Great Migration?
The Wildebeest migration is great for reason. Over a million wildebeests, plus zebras, gazelles and elands grumble across the sweeping Savannah of Tanzania’s Serengeti. It’s one of the greatest spectacles and a highlight of any safari to Tanzania.
There isn’t just one great migration experience in Tanzania. Tourists see the great migration depending on where they are at any given time. Tourists might see massed herds in the south, the exciting river crossings of the herds, or the rumbling exodus to the north.
The calendar for the Great migration
Tanzania safaris to the southern parts enable tourists see the huge herds gathering from April to May, to the Grumeti River from May to July for the crossing or to the northern zones July-September to see the herds spread across the plains or over into Kenya’s Maasai Mara National reserve.
In Tanzania, you’re spoilt for choice.
