6 Days Serengeti Migration Safari

6 Days Serengeti Migration Safari in June (Mid Luxury)

The 6 Days Serengeti Migration Safari is a wildlife viewing package to Seronera area and Grumeti River Area that combined Serengeti wildlife experience with game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. On this 6 days Serengeti Migration safari, enjoy a game drive while sighting some of the ferocious mammals like lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras and wildebeests. This 6 days Tanzania wildebeest Migration Safari tour is recommended in June annually. The 6 Days Serengeti  migration safari package is designed to include both the Seronera area (central Serengeti National Park) and Western corridor (western Serengeti National Park) where the majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found from May to June.

By the end of April, the Tanzania safari wildebeest migration starts to spread west across the plains towards the Seronera area (central Serengeti) and Western Corridor (western Serengeti). The majority of the migration can normally be seen in the Seronera area (or just south of the Seronera, in the southern plains) from April to May.

In June the majority of the Tanzania migration safari can then be found in the Western Corridor. The Western Corridor is a narrow stretch of land that stretches from the west of Seronera to the Western Serengeti border. The Western corridor is one of the areas where the migrating animals are forced to cross the GURUMETI river This normally happens when the animals leave the southern plains and begin heading north. Please note witnessing a crossing is a matter of luck.
