Safari Holidays in Africa's National Parks

An African safari holiday is one of those definitive bucket-list items: travelling through Africa’s national parks in an open vehicle, encountering wildlife up-close and witnessing nature’s prowess as she orchestrates the daily cycle of so many species – this is Africa at its finest.

                                            

 

Wildebeest Migration

Of course, one of the biggest questions we get asked is about the mass migration that takes pace in the National Parks. An amazing spectacle, the wildebeest migration takes place in Kenya and Tanzania during the change of seasons. The exact timing changes annually, as it is an unpredictable and spontaneous natural event. Calving season takes place in the Serengeti from January-March, and the wildebeest migration usually heads towards the western Serengeti in June.

One of the best times to see the migration is usually between June and August, when the wildebeest congregate and prepare to cross the famous Grumeti River. In the Masai Mara, the arrival of the wildebeest can happen as early as June, but generally arrive between July-August. They will stay in the Masai Mara until around September/October, before gradually commencing their return home to the Serengeti.


Serengeti (Tanzania)

Stretching across 30,000 sq km of Tanzania, the Serengeti is teeming with over 500 animal species. Journeying over these endless grassy plains and coming fact-to-face with some of the world’s fiercest wildlife is one of the most exhilarating experiences in the world.
