Frequently Asked Questions

When will I see the wildebeest migration?

The wildebeest typically disperse into the Seronera plains of Tanzania during the short rains, which fall in late November or early December. Here they remain until the end of the long rains from January to early May. Towards the end of April the wildebeest start to congregate on the southern plains in the preparation for the 800km northward migration to Kenya. The major obstacle faced by the wildebeest on this migration is the crossing for the Grumeti River through the western corridor, which typically occurs between June and July. From July to October, you may catch the crossing of the Mara River into Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

What are the travel days like?

This is not a physically challenging tour, however the travelling can be difficult on long drives with poor road conditions. Long distances are covered between national parks and game drives are also spend driving around the park in search of wildlife. Yet the diversity and beautiful scenery of this African landscape combined with meeting the local tribes and learning about their cultures truly enhances the experience.

What if I'm travelling solo?

Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation so the single supplement is optional based on whether you require a private room. We pair single travels in twin accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of your tour.
