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.
Ngorongoro Crater – Gazing Into A Surreal World
So much of Tanzania doesn't appear real. The country blurs definitions of fiction, its natural spectacles unlike anything seen elsewhere in Africa. Ngorongoro is an exquisite example, a staggering volcanic caldera that's evolved into a haven for a huge diversity of big mammals. After landing at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will transfer onto a light aircraft for a short flight into the Ngorongoro Conversation Area. The caldera spills out beneath the wingtips, and the panoramas can be astonishing as you come into land. Your lodge is one of a small handful that is perched on the crater rim, offering compelling views from your private verandah. In part, it's how you would imagine a volcanic caldera: rugged, dramatic, expansive. But then a massive elephant bull wanders past the lodge, and you realize this is a caldera like no other. So rest and relax, you'll be following the elephants onto the caldera floor tomorrow.
