This is a sample itinerary to inspire a personalized trip designed with your travel specialist

Countries Visited


Places Visited

Northern Serengeti, Grumeti Reserve, Eastern Serengeti

Suggested Duration

10 Days

The focal point of most Serengeti safaris is the great wildebeest migration. But you don't need to visit during the migration to explore the wonders of these evocative grasslands. Travel between August and December, and the Serengeti experience is equally sublime, a chance to connect with nature, avoid the crowds, and still encounter hundreds of thousands of wild animals. With four distinctive experiences, this 10-day safari showcases how the Serengeti teems with life all year around.
