Undecided as to which country to witness the Wildebeest from? Why not do both? The Migration takes place with river crossings of the Mara River in both Kenya and Tanzania (Masai Mara and Serengeti). This safari package offers the best view from both sides of the River.  We also focus on the big five and other animals such as zebras, crocodiles, gazelles, and wildebeest, the list is endless! And let`s not forget and about the landscape, which is too beautiful to be ignored. Prepare to marvel at views of the savanna grasslands, indigenous trees, and endless valleys.

This itinerary combines the high drama of the Wildebeest Migration in the majestic plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara with the majesty of the World Heritage-listed Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
