A Safari With The Tanzanian Great Migration

You have decided to take a safari and without doubt I would advise a Serengeti Safari in Northern Tanzania. A Safari throughout the limitless plains of the Serengeti to witness the last, excellent migration on earth is an extraordinary experience.

The fantastic migration safari in the Serenegeti comprises of numerous thousands of wildebeest in an endlessing cycle of motion, carefully followed by the predators trying to find a simple dish. The Wildebeest follow the rains and migration is therefore as unforeseeable as these rains. It is the last remaining excellent migration on our world, and as such, it is a should to take a safari to witness very first hand this fantastic event.

Many safari business aim to anticipate the location of the animals. The success of this depends on 3 main things. a. The rains being on time. b. The rains lasting long enough to influence the animal to move. c. The experience of the company arranging migration safaris in the Serengeti. The problem with these forecasts is that recently the rains have actually not been on time or they have actually even failed, leaving some safari-makers with clients in the wrong lodges in the wrong area of the Serengeti. Just recently many people on safari in Kenya [as the migration crosses the border and for a short time the migration is in Kenya] experienced the failure of the long rains and with this failure the majority of the animals remained in the Northern Serengeti, leaving many people on the safari not just in the wrong lodges however in the wrong nation!

The best ways to solve this problem involves a little work on your part, in investigating your subject and reserving your safari getaway with care. Below are a few easy steps as a basic guideline.

1. If you are desiring your safari from late July through to the end of September/October then it is required to book well in advance. This time of year is so hectic that the majority of the lodges will become complete.

If you have, the possibilities are the safari took location between these over crowded summertime months and the majority of probably the safari was in the Seronera Valley, in the central Serengeti. Do guarantee your safari consists of two areas of the Serengeti. One must be the south or the north of this big park, depending on the time of year and where the migration is heading.

3. If you have the luxury of reserving when travelers are couple of in Tanzania, then try to leave the actual booking of the safari up until a couple of weeks prior to your departure. If it is low season, March through to the end of June, then the safaris [that is the lodging and to a minimal level transport] are at bargain basement rates. Keep checking on the whereabouts of the migration then book your cottage through a quality operator appropriately. Safari operators ought to be able to get luxury accommodation much cheaper than your booking straight – this is how the safari controllers make their revenue.

The simplest way to an effective migration safari in the Serengeti is also the most pricey. Reserve a luxury safari in a semi irreversible luxury tented lodge.

Do not let the camping tent bit put you off. They are big camping tents with double beds and furnishings and even en-suite restrooms. Some boast of personal butlers for each camping tent.

How it is possible to keep an examine the whereabouts of the migration is easier said than done. There are numerous websites that declare to have regular updates however some I checked just recently are practically two years past their sell by date. I would recommend corresponding with two or three of the small shop trip operators in Tanzania– they have cars with motorists who are returning from the Serengeti every week and so know the motions of the animals. They will not mind keeping you well informed of what is occurring in order to [hopefully] get a safari booked.

Take time and strategy your safari thoroughly as the planning is a part of the experience. Take time to research a little and make sure your ground controller in Tanzania is eager to make your safari special. Ensure that with cautious preparation your safari experience will be an amazing and unforgettable one.
