7 Day Itinerary
Witness the dramatic scenes of the Great Wildebeest Migration unfold in the Serengeti, an incredible wildlife spectacle which can be viewed from different perspectives, be it the luxury of a lodge or from the skies via a hot air balloon.
Watch as the vast wildebeest herd dramatically cross over the Mara River to find fresh grazing spots.
Drive from Kogatende airstrip to the nomadic Serengeti Safari Camp for a migration safari right in the heart of the action. The camp moves four to five times a year, picking the best spots to view the rapid and unforgettable wildebeest and zebra migrations. In the months of July to October, the camp is nestled in the Northern Serengeti, in its own corner of hidden wilderness. This is the most intense time to see the migration, and the camp has the best spot with views of the wildebeest crossing over the Mara River, dodging hungry crocodiles to find fresh grazing spots. Wake up in your private Meru tent and head out on twice daily game drives to view the migration unfold, spot plains game and prowling predators, and take the chance to see it all from the air in a hot air balloon for a truly spectacular view of the action.
Observe the Serengeti wildebeest migration from one of the most dramatic sites in the National Reserve.
Finish your Serengeti adventure at the luxury Lamai Lodge, the most dramatic site in the Serengeti and perched high on a hill. Here, each private room has panoramic views over the Northern Serengeti Plains and are camouflaged amongst massive boulders on the little Kopje. You are very close to the Mara River, which you can explore on a game drive and view the wildebeest thunder across the waters to reach the other side. Spot the Big Five out on your safari adventures, some as they hunt through the migration looking for their prey. Finish your day out on safari with a bush picnic, before watching the sun set over the vast Serengeti – with gin and tonic in hand – from the Lamai viewing deck or swimming pool.
