June to August is the best time for a safari in Tanzania. The spectacular Mara River crossing occurs June-July and drier weather means more wildlife around waterholes. That said, the Great Migration swirls around the Serengeti outside these months; you just have to follow its course. June-August is cooler too – ideal months for avoiding the harsh heat. January-February brings fewer vehicles and greener landscapes after the short rains. You‟ll see baby wildebeest… and more predators. Heavy rain showers in March and May can cause travel disruption and many lodges in the remote south close. Mount Kilimanjaro is icy year-round, while the coast is warm – head here to thaw out

Tanzania has the largest animal population density of any country in the world. There are more animals per square mile of land in Tanzania than anywhere else. Tanzania has a huge variety of animals. Its fields, wetlands, and forests are home to; 430 mammalian species, the coastal nation is home to 60,000 African savannah elephants and about 200 black rhinos. It is also home to cheetahs, leopards, lions, and the rather elusive golden cat. Herbivores which roam its plains include buffaloes, elands, gazelles, wildebeests, and zebras. There are around 1,112 bird species: some of the most popular bird species include albatrosses, black eagles, bustards, cranes, flamingoes, grebes, jacanas, ostriches, oystercatchers, plovers, sandpipers, and www.saunterlandtours.com secretary birds. Tanzania is also home to 60,000 insect species, 100 snake species as well as hundreds of fish, reptiles, and amphibians.

If you are booking a road safari in Tanzania, a 6 seater a closed-sided pop up roof 4×4 safari landcruiser is the best option.

Generally safaris follow a typical pattern each day. Activities are mainly game drives in a pop up roof safari vehicle. In some destinations, you may undertake guided walks. The morning begins with a great breakfast before the first drive / activity which starts at or just after sunrise. There are great opportunities to see wildlife at this time since it is still fairly cool and animals are most active. Typically depending on the safari destination, you may choose to do a full day game drive or split the game drives into morning and evening game drive.The morning activity usually ends by late morning with guests returning to the camp / lodge for breakfast / brunch. Guests generally relax at the camp / lodge for the middle of the day. This is because the animals are quite inactive during the heat of the day – seeking shelter in the shade. Guests have lunch and enjoy the camp or lodge facilities (lounge / hammocks / swimming pool etc) or some properties offer short walks or visits to a hide. The second main activity will be in the late afternoon and perhaps end at a scenic point to view the sunset (depending on safari destination). Guests later return to the camp / lodge for drinks and dinner.

Zanzibar is the name of a group of islands in the Indian Ocean. About 25–50 km off the coast of East Africa. Zanzibar is not a country. It’s a partly self-governing state in Tanzania; it’s not an independent country. The archipelago was once the separate state of Zanzibar, which united with Tanganyika to form the United Republic of Tanzania. Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous within the union, with its own government. You do not need a separate visa for Zanzibar if you already have one for Tanzania.

The Great Migration is the largest herd movement of animals on the planet. In fact, with up to 1,000 animals per km², the great columns of wildebeest can be seen from space. The numbers are astonishing: over 1.2 million wildebeest and 300,000 zebra along with topi and other gazelle move in a constant cycle through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem in search of nutritious grass and water. Guided by survival instinct, each wildebeest will cover 800 to 1,000km on its individual journey along age-old migration routes. Hungry predators including lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, wild dog and crocs make sure only the strongest survive in this natural spectacle also known as „the greatest show on Earth.

The circuit takes the animals from Tanzania’s southern Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (though not into the Crater itself), across the Serengeti, across into Kenya’s Masai Mara, and back again. The trek is fraught with peril: crocodiles take their fair share of the stragglers, newborn calves are stolen by predators, the slow are brought down by lion prides, daring animals break legs on steep river slopes, and the weak and exhausted drown.

Below is the circuit of the great migration:

  • Great Migration around January, February and March
    Every year, around January, the migration will have completed its journey south and will be entering the Ngorongoro Conservation Area along the eastern fringe of the Serengeti. Here, the plains are abundant in nourishing grass, giving the herds the ideal surroundings for rearing their calf calves.Despite the fact that this migratory circuit has no actual beginning or finish other than birth and death, it seems logical to refer to the wildebeests’ breeding season as the migration’s beginning. The herds move onto the short-grass plains around Olduvai Gorge and the lower northern slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater highlands in late January or early February. In a span of two to three weeks, around 400,000 calves are born here, or almost 8,000 calves per day.
  • Great Migration in April and May
    After giving birth in February and March, the wildebeest herds start to migrate northwest toward the greener grass of the middle Serengeti around April. Along the way, they are followed by large numbers of zebra and smaller herds of antelope. at May, columns of wildebeest stretch for several kilometers as the animals begin to gather at the Moru Kopjes. Male wildebeest engage in head-to-head combat as mating season approaches at the end of May. The trek continues leisurely throughout “the rut,” with the wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle grazing along the way. Gradually, the movement gathers momentum and the wildebeest start to mass in the Serengeti‟s Western Corridor. At this time of year, you can watch the wildebeest cross the Grumeti River. The herds form in huge numbers along the pools and channels of the river, which they have to cross in order to continue on their journey. This may not be as spectacular as the famous Mara crossings, but there are still enough wildebeest to provide the Grumeti crocs with a veritable feast.
  • Great Migration in June and July
    Large herds of wildebeest can be found in the Western Serengeti and along the southern banks of the Grumeti River once the dry season begins in June. The first of many difficult and nervous river crossings that any migrating animal must undertake is the crocodile-infested river. The tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra continue to migrate north along the park’s western perimeter as June turns into July, heading for an even riskier barrier: the Mara River to the north of the Serengeti. Undoubtedly, one of the most thrilling animal events on Earth is these river crossings. Although time varies depending on the season, they often start in July as high season begins. The herds will typically be found in the Northern Serengeti in the month of July. Later in July, those animals that have successfully made it across the Mara River will also be found in the Masai Mara. At this time, daily river crossings can be seen at the Mara and Talek rivers, both often central to incredible scenes.
  • Great Migration in August, September and October
    By August, the herds have overcome the difficult task of crossing the Mara River and are dispersed throughout the northern Masai Mara, with many still in the northern Serengeti. When the river is in full flow, the terror and uncertainty at the crossings, along with lurking predators and raging currents, can result in a significant loss of life. But even in years when the water flows relatively softly, crocs, lions, and other large predators that patrol the banks take their toll and are poised to attack any wildebeest that manage to cross take their toll. There is no single crossing; at certain locations, there are just a few people, while at other locations, a large number of animals are moving continuously for hours.
  • Great Migration in November and December
    After the East African short rains in late October and early November, the wildebeest move down from Kenya and into the eastern limits of the Serengeti past Namiri Plains, an area known for outstanding cheetah sightings. By December, they are spread throughout the eastern and southern reaches.In the early months of the new year, the grasses in the deep south of the Serengeti are lush with rain. This draws the herds of wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra and other plains animals. The cycle continues as the calving season starts once again.
