    Absolutely unbelievable experience
    Getting to see the migration is a once in a lifetime experience. We had an experienced guide ombeni from easy travel who was able to take us to the right places around the Serengeti to see the different aspects of the migration at this time of the year. There is a migration tracker. We were able to see the herds crossing the grumeti river, zebras and wildebeest running around the savanna following the rain. Crocs, lioness, cheetah awaiting their next meal. It was incredible.

    Spectacular sight
    Watching the wildebeest gather by the thousands, and make the first step down the riverbank was absolutely astounding. They looked like a river if animals flowing down to the water. I would make every effort to witness this marvel of nature. You won’t regret it.

    Spectacular Sight
    We were staying at the Four Seasons Lodge and chose the day trip to Ndutu to see the great migration. Our guide Pruis did a wonderful job showing us this spectacular sight. We saw thousands of wildebeests, zebras, Cale buffalos and many other animals. To see these large animals thunderously running was exhilarating. We saw flamingos and other birds at the lake in the park. One of the highlights was seeing 3 different prides of lions totaling 14 lions. The roads are bumpy and our trip was about 10 hours in total. We were very glad we chose to do nothing the following day. The Four Seasons is a great place to relax and recharge. Beautiful pool and spa treatment.

I'm probably in the minority on this but I didn't find the migration to be one of the highlights of our trip. I did enjoy learning about the migration, why it happens, when it happens and how it affects and is affected by the land and the ecosystem (the whole "circle of life" thing). And we did see endless numbers of wildebeest and zebras and we were right in the middle of it all. But I wouldn't count it as one of the highlights of the trip. I saw many more things that I'd rate above it. I am glad I saw it and I wouldn't say not to see it while you're in East Africa, but I enjoyed seeing the people, the landscape and the variety of animals more than just seeing a whole lot of a couple of species.

Spectacular Moment seeing them. While we did not see actual river crossing, but it was worth the trip to see them in Ndutu this January.

Our group arrived from Tarangire via Seronera and then further north to see the Great Migration. We didnt know what to expect really as we only watched some documentaries before. The truth is it is even much more impressive to see it live as the smell, the Sound and the way how the earth starts shaking when all the wildebeest started running around our jeep are just indescribable!!!! I think it was one of the most impressive things i have ever witnessed in my life! Our guides Sabas and David knew exactly where to position ourselfs to get the very best views and then all of a sudden we were right in the middle of this natural wonder. We spent 2 days at the Serenget snd then 2 days at Masai Mara in Kenya where our guides James and Julius took over. In Kenya we stayed at Mara Sopa Lodge which we enjoyed much as it was super cozy and comfortable while offering a great service. All was perfectly organized by Tanzania Horizon Safaris and all went as described in our itinerary. We hsrdly needed our binoculars as we were so close to the animals. Serenget + Massai Mara are the perfect combination!

Visiting Serengeti National Park is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that offers many unforgettable moments.
Hot Air Balloon Safari: Taking a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti is a magical experience that allows you to see the park from a unique perspective. You can see the wildlife from above as you float silently over the savannah

Me and my husband have planned this trip to the Serengeti for quite some time as it was always our dream for our honeymoon vacation to go on safari and see the stars and the milky way and the animals of course and what can I say.. It was just breathtaking. Our safari was organized by Tanzania Horizon Safaris and they really made our honeymoon even sweeter than expected. We had a late night dinner under the stars and just watched the thousands of stars above us. We stayed 1 night at Kati Kati Camp and the next night at Lahia Tented Lodge and both were just wonderful. Our guide Damian made sure that the jeep was always super clean and he arranged everything for us by the time we already went to sleep so that everything was ready in the morning. He really told us everything about the circle of life and the great migration and I am truly happy that we will forever keep this time in our memories.

We were early in the year to see the annual migration, but what we did see was astounding. Under wide open skies, to see so many animals moving en masse was unbelievable. A sight not to be missed.

Nothing can quite prepare you for the Great Migration on the Serengeti. At times you are in the middle of such a vast concentration of animals that it is literally breathtaking - tens of thousands of wildebeest, zebra, antelope and gazelles as far as the eye can see in every direction, with predators waiting in the wings.

We went for two weeks on a trip organized by The Wild Source, who wee fantastic. Lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas aplenty, jackals, elephants, you name it... Amazing experience.
