August to September is the best time to witness wildebeest river crossings in northern Serengeti. After the ‘short rains’ fall in November and December, the migration moves from Kenya's Maasai Mara down through the eastern side of Tanzania's Serengeti. The months of August, September, and October are the best time to see the great wildebeest migration in Masai Mara. After the long rains in April- May, the migration starts moving from the depleted southern plains north to the long grass plains in the western corridor.

There are various hotels to stay in during the Tanzania Safari. However, Tanzania safari is best experienced from our tented camps. We offer a variety of budget to high-end luxury camping safaris.
