After an early breakfast, you will depart for a full-day game drive in northern Serengeti, near the Tanzania and Kenya border. Your game drives will focus on seeing the wildebeest migration and especially on the river crossing. Later in the evening, you will enjoy the campfire dinner and overnight at your camp.
Many visitors only want to see the river crossings, but the true spectacle of the migration is more than 1,245,000 wildebeests, 200,000 Burchell’s zebras, 18,000 elands, and 500,000 Thomson’s gazelles filling the entire stretch of landscape. The shifting columns of the herds as they traverse the valleys and the hills can only be watched in awe. There is nothing else like this on earth.
Hundreds of thousands of wildebeest can congregate at crossing points, all crossing in a single continuous wave of beasts. This happens while tooth and claw are waiting around the sides to pick off the weak and the careless.
