4-Day Serengeti & Ngorongoro Lodge Safari
On this 4-day Tanzania lodge safari, If you want to see the Great Migration of wildebeests, then you definitely need to visit the Serengeti Valley. The migration takes place in Tanzania from October to the end of July, moving around the territory of the Serengeti in a clockwise direction and going off to Kenya for two months. But since most of the time, wildebeests are still in Tanzania, we boldly recommend you see this unique phenomenon. Besides, the tour begins with the wonderful Ngorongoro Сrater, which is on the way to the Serengeti and serves as a gate toward the vast valley. Here is a world in which predators and herbivores coexist.
