Classic Serengeti Migration Lodge Safari





This 6-day lodge safari covers Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti National Park. You will witness the extraordinary spectacle of thousands of wildebeests and zebras crossing the grassland savannah, a truly remarkable experience and one of Africa’s natural wonders. To ensure your chance of witnessing the Great Migration, we customize your route and camp sequence based on your travel schedule.


You will meet your safari guide in the morning and climb aboard your 4×4 Toyota Land Cruiser, setting off toward Tarangire National Park. Delight in the expansive savannah, dotted with iconic baobab trees, seasonal swamps, and the life-sustaining Tarangire River that define this picturesque park.

Watch in awe as wildlife congregates around the riverbanks. Elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, and hartebeests frequently grace the landscape. Keep an eye out for unique sightings like the fringe-eared oryx or the peculiar gerenuk. Tarangire's rich habitats are also home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests, drawing the attention of various predators, including lions.

Your safari vehicle, equipped with an open roof, provides an optimal viewing platform to immerse yourself in nature's wonders. As the afternoon wanes, settle into your lodge inside Tarangire. Options, subject to availability, may include Baobao Tented Camp, Nyikani Tarangire Camp, or similar establishments.

Your journey traverses past Lake Manyara into the fertile Ngorongoro highlands. Venturing through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you'll arrive at the expansive open plains of Serengeti National Park by early afternoon. The upcoming days are dedicated to unraveling the wonders of the renowned Serengeti, famed for hosting the Big Five - elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, and rhino - among various other wildlife species.

Anticipate thrilling wildlife encounters during your game drives, as every safari day unfolds with new and unexpected sightings. Your next three nights will be spent at Serengeti Heritage Camp or a similar accommodation.

Alternatively, during November – December & April – May, all three nights could be in the central Serengeti.

These two days are entirely dedicated to the wonders of the Serengeti. Accompanied by your guide, immerse yourself in the exploration of this pristine wilderness. Take your time to observe the park's diverse wildlife, delving into their behaviors and social structures.

The Serengeti National Park, Tanzania's third-largest park, is a breathtaking expanse. The southern region features expansive grasslands stretching as far as the eye can see, while the north and west are adorned with open woodlands and rolling hills. Together with the Masai Mara, the Serengeti hosts the Great Migration, a spectacle where millions of wildebeest and zebras traverse the land—an unparalleled natural marvel.

Enjoy a leisurely lunch at a scenic picnic spot before embarking on a gradual drive toward the Ngorongoro Crater.

Upon arrival at the crater, you'll be greeted by a magnificent view of this approximately 20 km wide caldera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to over 20,000 animals. Your accommodation for the night is at the Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge, situated on the crater rim, offering an incredible vantage point for witnessing the breathtaking sunset.
