See our handy map detailing where the animals are meant to be, Maps and illustrations showing the path of the migrating herds should be used as a general guide and a good way to choose the location of your hotel, camp or lodge. However, as with anything in nature, the actual day to day pattern is unpredictable. Wildebeest are remarkably unpredictable!
We also organize private safaris. That means that only you and your travel partner(s) will be on the tour. This gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of stopping, finding your favorite animals, taking photographs, planning your day to day schedule etc.
Alternatively, you can start from scratch and work with us to develop a totally customized itinerary and schedule. We are enthusiastically open to side trips, detours, special needs and special plans.
Feel free to email us, and again, take a look at our special offers if you need any inspiration, ideas on pricing etc.

Most of the safari lodges and camps are not fenced and wildlife move freely about. Please follow all safety instructions provided by the lodge or camp regarding moving to and from your room/tent after dark. If you have young children, do not let them out of your sight or wander alone under any circumstances.
You are responsible for your own safety, if you are unsure of anything, please do not hesitate to ask your safari guide or lodge/camp staff.
For example, if you love elephants and would like to see large herds, we recommend visiting Tarangire National Park in the height of the dry season from July to September when massive herds congregate around the Tarangire River. If you are interested in climbing Kilimanjaro prior to going on safari, we’ll suggest you avoid travelling in April and May when the long rains will make trekking difficult. If you’d like to see the wildebeest migration spread out across the Serengeti plains, we’ll recommend you travel in the green season stretching from December to April. Whatever month you travel, we will build your itinerary to ensure you’re located in the right parks and the right regions for best wildlife viewing.
