Tanzania Galaxy - Private Holiday

This safari itinerary is carefully planned to follow the calving season of the Serengeti Migration, also referred to as the Wildebeest Migration, the enormous year-round movement of wildlife, in which close to 2.5 million herbivores feed their way along an 800km route around the Serengeti area of northwest Tanzania, and crossing to the Masai Mara area of Southwest Kenya. Since the migration is accessible for most of the year, we have set the stays to be close to the herds in different times of the year.
