Serengeti Migration Tanzania is a nature tour that strategically place travelers in the center of one of the greatest annual animal migrations on earth — the Wildebeest Migration.

Each year, the plains of the Serengeti plays host to over two million animals who goes on a round trip that take them over two thousand miles. Early evidence revealed that wildebeests began grazing these plains over one million years ago. At the beginning of each year, the wildebeests congregate on the fringes of the Serengeti, the majority of the females giving birth in the same month. In this period, their numbers multiplies. Within two days of being born, the calves can run as fast as their mother.

It is unclear what trigger the migration. But once a few wildebeest sniffed the air and starts walking, the migration begins. The exodus is perilous. Even without attacks from predators, over 200,000 of the feeblest wildebeests and zebras die from exhaustion, diseases, and starvation. The migrating animals, however do stop to rest at waterholes and rivers, and regroup. In Kenya Masai Mara, the migrating herd arrives. Here, the wildebeests will linger until the smell of November rain tells them it’s time to head back to the Serengeti. Serengeti Migration Tanzania tour allows for the observations of the animals along the routes.

Serengeti Migration Tanzania tour includes exploring the Ngorongoro Crater/Ndutu, Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, and Lake Manyara National Park. Many nature parks in the region are dedicated to wildlife conservation for the preservation of the species and the native land. And at L’ EcoResorts, we the organizers of the Serengeti Migration Tanzania tour are allies. The parks and preserves comprise topography from swamplands and lakes to grassland plains to craters and mountains. Wildlife roams freely within these areas and includes the elephant, the lion, the zebra, the leopard, the hyenas, and flamingos.

No other place on earth hosts such a high concentration of elephants as does the plains of Tanzania. These mammals tend to gather in herds, dotting the vast landscape. Gathering alongside the lake are great flocks of pink flamingos. And lions mount trees, in droves, and lay out on branches.

Serengeti Migration Tanzania nature tour coupled with eco camps and migration camps provide much opportunities for travelers to watch the great migration, as well as see the resident animals in their natural habitat in nature parks and reserves.
