This Serengeti itinerary will immerse you in nature's greatest drama. The great migration cycle starts in January to March, and more than a million wildebeest will congregate and calve. The abundance of defenseless young attracts tens of thousands of predators and no other time or place in Africa can reveal as many hunting scenes. This 10-day great migration safari showcases the wild at its most raw and vehement and takes you off road among the thrills and emotion of a complete predatory cycle.
