Overview

11 Day Great Serengeti Wildebeest Migration Safari is a display of natural wonders with over two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelope traveling over 450 miles across the plain to ensure their survival, unaware that there’s the danger presented by the stalking lions and cheetahs among other predators of the wildlife. Burigi Safaris will let you witness the huge crocodiles of the Mara River as they wait for the herbivorous to cross the swollen Mara river and enter into Masai Mara Game Reserve from Serengeti National Park.

DAY 1: ARUSHA TO LAKE NATRON.
DAY 1: ARUSHA TO LAKE NATRON.

Breakfast and drive to Lake Natron, off the beaten path, and away from the crowded places. The route takes you through the cultural home of the Maasai. On the way, you will pass Engaruka, an archaeological site of the Stone-age settlement, as well as the majestic Ondonyo Lengai mountain which is the only active volcanic mountain in the Great Rift Valley. Lake Natron will fascinate you with its colors, varying from pink, lime, green, and red due to the concentration of minerals and possibly the flamingoes! It is an almost surreal and breathtaking landscape that will leave you in awe! Arrive in the late afternoon for a brief check-in, followed by bird watching, flamingo, and sunset walk around the lake.
Dinner and overnight at Lake Natron Tented Camp: Full board.

DAY 2: ANOTHER DAY TOUR IN LAKE NATRON.

After breakfast, we will proceed for a full day game drive viewing the great migration at the Mara area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area. The key feature is the Mara River and there is a great chance to see the herds cross the Mara River to the north on one day and back south a few days later. Please note that it can be very difficult to witness crossing and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to the river and only decide to cross a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation, and open plains, similar to Kenya’s Masai Mara.
Dinner and overnight at Acacia Migration Tented Camp: Full board.
