8 Day Southern Serengeti Lux Safari

$7950

Description

Get ready to witness one of the most amazing natural events on the planet, the Great Migration. Start your adventure in Arusha and then transfer to Tarangire National Park which is a good choice for travellers who wish to encounter more animals and less tourists while on safari. The Tarangire National Park is known as a wonderful birding destination and also features large numbers of game. From here your bucket-list safari begins. The Southern Serengeti is one of the few places in the Serengeti where you can do walking safaris. Exploring the bush on foot is one of the best ways of immersing yourself in the wilderness. Seeing large game on foot makes for an exceptional safari experience.

Grassy plains studded with granite kopjes extend endlessly across the scenically beautiful Southern Serengeti, which stretches from the bottom of the Central Serengeti to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Maswa Game Reserve. It’s one of the best areas to see the animals of the Great Migration: visit between December and May to see the huge herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle arriving to calve, and then at the beginning of the dry season making their way northwards again in search of green grass. February is a great month to visit the Southern Serengeti to see thousands of baby wildebeest taking their first steps on the savanna – and being targeted by hungry lion, cheetah and hyena, which are in abundance in the region.

Why not for an added experience, book a balloon safari and float over the Great Migration. You’ve never experienced true magic, until you’ve flown in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti National Park. The weather in the Serengeti is ideal for ballooning. Rides usually take place in the early morning (when the weather is more stable and calm).

After your one hour flight and you have safely landed, celebrate in style with a traditional glass of champagne and then enjoy a traditional Bush Breakfast.

ACTIVITIES

Spend eight wonderful days on this Southern Serengeti Safari and witness the Great Migration. One of the most sought-after experiences for wildlife and nature enthusiasts, the Great Migration is the ever-moving circular migration of over a million animals across the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. The constant movement of columns of wildebeest, joined by a host of companions, follow an age-old route in search of grazing and water. After calving in the southern part of Tanzania's Serengeti near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the animals journey through the Serengeti up and around in a clockwise direction towards the Masai Mara in Kenya, before returning once again near the end of the year. Along the way, high drama is always present, as thousands of animals are taken by predators and thousands more are born, replenishing the numbers and sustaining the circle of life.
