Overview

Serengeti Migration Safari ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Planning the best safari in Serengeti is a matter of being in the right place at the right time, and choosing between permanent camps and semi-mobile operations, which can follow the local movement of wildlife (the great migration).

Home to the great wildebeest migration, the Serengeti National Park is known for their vast wilderness areas filled with exhilarating wildlife, dramatic landscapes, and world class safari camps and lodges. Apart from the crossing of the migratory wildlife, many areas of the Serengeti offer action-packed game drives with some of the best wildlife sightings and diversity of any national park. You will observe tons of resident wildlife, including large prides of lions, leopards, buffalo, elephants, and – if you’re lucky – you’ll get more up close and personal with rhinos here than anywhere else in Tanzania. Whether you catch a crossing or not, you will never be disappointed!

What is Serengeti National Park famous for?  

The Serengeti is famous for the great wildebeest migration which attracts over 2.5 million migratory wildlife including wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle annually. Witnessing the great migration is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should top the bucket list of every safari enthusiast. Thanks to our local knowledge of wildlife behaviors and movement in Tanzania’s parks and sanctuaries, we can save you many hours of dead-end online research, frustration and crushing disappointment.

Our private-guided Serengeti safari is created to guide you to some of the most unique, less-crowded areas of the park so you can enjoy the best game-viewing experience and fulfill your once-in-a-lifetime safari with comfort and peace of mind. 

Overview of our Serengeti Guided Safari Itinerary

Our private guided safari in Serengeti will let you experience the adventures of the Serengeti Migration, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire without breaking the bank whilst offering you all the comfort you need to make your dream Serengeti safari journey to Africa memorable! You will stay in comfortable mid-range properties for the whole duration of the trip, participate in some unique Swahili culinary experience with local mamas and explore an authentic Tanzanian culture with members of the legendary Maasai tribe. Each traveler will have a window seat for uninterrupted wildlife viewing and photographic opportunities.

You will have a dedicated professional English-speaking safari guide for the whole trip to help you identify the wildlife and give you some insight into their behaviors while ensuring that everyone is enjoying their time on safari. Our week-long guaranteed scheduled group departure tour will be the perfect fit for you if you’re looking to join a small group of like-minded safari-goers on your next trip to Africa!

How many days do I need to spend on safari in Serengeti? 

We recommend that you set aside a minimum of three nights (four days) to spend in the Serengeti so that you really can make the most of this remarkable part of the world. At more than 14,750 square kilometres in size, the Serengeti is one of the largest national parks in Africa. To fully explore all that the Serengeti has to offer, it is important that you allow enough time to game drive and explore this wildlife-filled “endless” wilderness.

Awesome We spent 3 marvelous days with Godwin in Tarangire, Manyara Lake and Ngorongoro crater. He speaks perfect english, is funny but formal. He explained to us a lot of things about the big amount of animals we could see. Also some curiosities about the flora. No doubt, we would repeat.

Amazing Safari experience! We started working with Abdullie to create our itinerary 2 years ago. Our original plan was to visit Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania, however due to covid we decided to visit only Tanzania this year. We visited Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, the Northern Serengeti and the Central Serengeti. Every aspect of our safari was so well planned, and the accommodations were lovely. We had two guides during the duration of our trip, Michael and Juma. Both guides were not only extremely knowledgeable, but so personable and were just as excited to see things as we were, and they were so patient (we had a lot of questions!). It was great to hear how much they knew about the wildlife and the areas, but we really enjoyed getting to know them as individuals. To say Michael’s knowledge of birds was amazing would be an understatement. My husband would quickly describe a bird he saw to Michael and he would be able to tell us the type of bird and explain it to us. On top of that, he would always show us in the book and explain further. Juma’s knowledge of the areas we were in were just astonishing. Sometimes I wondered where we were driving (not that I would have known anyway!), or what we were waiting for, but Juma was always a step ahead. On our last day in the Central Serengeti he drove us further out, and didn’t stop searching for male lions as those were the one big cat we hadn’t seen. Sure enough, Juma found us 3 male lions together!! The best part? We were the ONLY car there, so we were able to spend as much time watching them. Abdullie and his team were available at all times…even with the time difference, Abdullie answered my emails and texts so quickly, regardless of the time. We really appreciated the communication between the team: Abdullie checking in on us, Michael connecting with Juma when we were changing locations, and vice versa. They just worked so well as a team…it wasn’t as if one individual knew something that the others didn’t, they were all in the communication loop. We truly loved every aspect of our trip. There isn’t anything we would change. Abdullie was so patient with me throughout the whole planning phase (believe me, I know I’m not the easiest person to work with!), always quickly responding to my numerous emails and questions. Michael and Juma ensured we saw everything we wanted to, and spent as much or as little time viewing the animals as we wanted. In Tarangire there were elephants everywhere, and since Michael knew how much I loved elephants, he would point them out and stop EVERY SINGLE TIME we spotted them (which was quite often lol), and he would just stop and wait until I had gotten enough of watching them. We saw several river crossings in the Northern Serengeti because Juma was determined to have us watch as many as we could. Everything throughout our trip was seamless. Would we work with Abdullie and Wito Africa Safaris again? Well, we have the second part of our trip booked for next year already and it wouldn’t be with anyone else! The amount of time Abdullie and his team put into creating the perfect itinerary for you really shows. I realize this is an extensive review, however this is short compared to how much more I wanted to write about Abdullie and his team, and our trip in general. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to plan their safari, to just get in touch with Wito…I guarantee from the first response you receive from Abdullie you’ll feel like he’s a friend who just wants to plan the perfect trip for you. You won’t regret it!

Incredible experience in Africa 🙂 When my friend and I booked our flights to Africa, we were sure we were going to plan the whole trip ourselves. Turns out that was a very overwhelming thing to even begin! So happy to have connected with Wito Africa Safaris, because not only did we get to do everything we set out to, we got so much more! A trip tailored to our wants and must dos, without any of the stress that comes with planning and not knowing what or who to book with and transfers to and from airports that we had never been to. It was the most amazing experience and not having to worry about the details made it that much more incredible. The most magical part of our trip was by far the Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti. Words can’t describe how amazing it is! We also went to Zanzibar for the beach, Cape Town for the mountains (and wine!), Botswana for more animals and Zimbabwe for Victoria falls. If you’re considering booking a trip to Africa, don’t think, just do it! And planning with Wito Africa Safaris will make it a thousand times more relaxed and enjoyable:)

Amazing experience! Abdullie from Wito Safaris organized the perfect trip for us and while doing so, stayed in close contact with us to listen to our wishes and explain the possibilities. We explicitly chose an Tanzanian organization and we were very happy with the outcome. All the lodges were excellent quality with very nice staff. Our guide was the best. We stayed together for 6 days, so you better get along! And we certainly did. He had great knowledge of the wildlife and their ecosystem, which really enhanced our enjoyment. We had a chance to see all the animals, from the big 5 to the small beautiful birds. And everything went smoothly, we had no worries whatsoever. Perfectly organized trip and truly a trip of a lifetime.

Our experience with Wito Africa Safaris could not have been more pleasant from the initial communication through the completion of the safari in Ngorongoro. Our driver was courteous, fun and most informative of the surrounding area, the history of the park, and of every species we saw inside the park and even on the fringe. The vehicle was comfortable and accommodated our group well; the lunch was delicious and even special dietary needs were met. All prearranged details were executed precisely. I would highly recommend Wito Africa Safaris.

Itinerary

DAY 1: ARUSHA, TANZANIA (ONE NIGHT)

Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) you will be warmly welcomed by a Wito Africa private vehicle and driver, who will transfer you to your accommodation in Arusha for a pre-safari briefing and overnight stay (dinner upon arrival). Your butler will then show you to your room where you will spend one night.

DAY 2: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK (ONE NIGHT)

After a delicious breakfast, your Wito Africa private field guide and vehicle will transfer you to Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive and exploration. Tarangire is known for its massive elephant herds, true sense of wilderness and backdrop of baobabs. During your game drives, you will marvel at your first sightings of what is probably one of Africa’s largest populations of elephants, along with Cape buffalos, impalas, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest who— in addition to some big cats and an abundance of mammal species—call the park their home. Lunch will be a classic safari picnic within the park, while enjoying a glimpse of the great wilds of Northern Tanzania. In the afternoon, check in to your camp, get settled and enjoy a private sundowner before having your delicious dinner on the patio (feel free to squeeze in a guided nature walk if you decide to head back to your intimate camp by 3:45pm).

DAY 3 & 4: NGORO NGORO CRATER (TWO NIGHTS)

After a leisurely breakfast, your Wito Africa private guide will greet you at the lodge and take you for another exhilarating morning game drive in this unique, wildlife-filled area of Tarangire. After lunch, you will be transferred in the direction of the Great Rift Valley to the crater highlands, for a taste of culture. Your guide will take you to a local Maasai village, or perhaps to the FAME Africa Hospital, where you will meet the people who started this local hospital in order to help the people of Tanzania (you could choose to visit a school, orphanage, village, hospital … whatever most interests you!). In the late afternoon, transfer to the lodge that borders Ngorongoro Crater for relaxation and an overnight stay.

The next day, after an early breakfast, you will descend with your private safari guide to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, where you will find spectacular scenery (arriving nice and early gives you the best chance of witnessing the predators returning from their overnight hunts) and game viewing in what has been described by UNESCO as the eighth wonder of the world. Ngorongoro is a collapsed volcano – an incredible natural amphitheater, 25 km across, and teeming with more than 30,000 protected animals, including all members of The Big Five. Depart from the lodge with a picnic so that you can maximize your time in the Crater. In the late afternoon, return to your lodge for sundowners and relaxation before your scrumptious dinner.

DAY 5, 6 & 7: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK (THREE NIGHTS)

After a leisurely breakfast, your Wito Africa private guide will transfer you to the heart of the Serengeti National Park through Olduvai Gorge/Shifting Sands. Appreciate the vastness of this true wilderness with a gentle game drive as you make your way to your luxury tented camp for overnight. Immerse yourself in your unique surroundings, followed by sundowners and a campfire under the starry African skies, and all capped off by a delicious dinner. You will enjoy the next three nights in this amazing, secluded area of the park, viewing African wildlife by day and enjoying the calls of the animals from the comforts of your intimate luxury camp at night.

OPTIONAL – Why not take an unforgettable flight over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon!

DAY 8: KILIMANJARO & BEYOND (DAY ROOM CAN BE ARRANGED)

You will say goodbye to the Serengeti with hearts and minds full of incredible memories, and board your scheduled flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport.Upon a late evening arrival at JRO, gather your luggage and transit to your international flight departure.
