Special Migration Safari in the Ndutu Plain

Duration: 7 days

Period: from December to March

This 7-day safari will introduce you to the wildebeest migration in the Ndutu plain. You will be able to admire a spectacular gathering of animals and perhaps you will be lucky enough to witness a calving during this calving period. Migration depends each year on the rainy season but, generally, it can be observed in the Ndutu plain between December and March. In the heart of this area, you will dive into the famous Ngorongoro crater listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site. You will also benefit from the immensity of the Serengeti and Tarangire National Park.

You will have a picnic lunch in the company of the hippos and can admire zebras and birds very close to you.

At the end of your safari, you will reach the Ndutu plain and your lodge or camp in the heart of the savannah to dine and spend the night.

Day 4


After breakfast, you will set off for your game drive in the beautiful plains of Ndutu. You can admire the large gatherings of wildebeest which, during this period, come to graze and give birth in the green plains of Ndutu. You may be lucky enough to see predators attracted to this concentration of herbivores (lions, hyenas). You will go in search of cheetahs present in this area during this migration period.


You will have your lunch in the heart of the savannah or, if you wish, will return to your camp for a moment of relaxation around the table.


Your game drive will continue in the afternoon before dinner and overnight at camp.

Day 5

After breakfast, you will take the road towards the most famous and largest park in Tanzania: the Serengeti. The Serengeti will leave you with an unforgettable memory with its endless expanses of acacia savannah, plains, hilly areas and rocky outcrops called KOPJES. This 14,763 km² park is home to more than 2 million large animals, including more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras and different varieties of gazelles. Large predators, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas are attracted to the region by this abundance of prey which migrates throughout the park. Many small animals such as mongooses, jackals, monkeys also inhabit the region with nearly 500 species of birds.
