Rwanda/Serengeti trip

I am planning a trip for 2013 to go to Rwanda and the Serengeti. When would be the best time to see both the mountain gorillas and the great migration?

Don't know about the best times for gorillas in Rwanda (perhaps you might want to post that on the Rwanda forum); but one fo the best times for the migration is in February when they will be in the Ndutu area having their calves, and this attracts not only the migraion but also all the predators.

Karl is right-February at Ndutu is the best time and place for calves. If you want to see the "migration" as in "hundreds of wildebeest racing across the Grumeti as crocs attack" you need to spend a good month in Tanzania and have resources set up so you can fly out when its happening-or at the very least join a high end "migration safari". The gorillas are best in July-Sept (google it) while Feb is the long rains-so you cannot hit both in a single trip-plus really you are stretching yourself-are you really planning to visit TZ just for the serengeti? You are better off oicking a country and sticking with it unless you have months of vacation time saved and lots of money. Also you need a permit to see the gorillas and you need to get that permit a good 6 months in advance. Either country has enough for an easy 2-3 week vacation
