August 2020 The Great Migration
Please click on the link above, to download the full itinerary for August 2020
At this stage, my scheduling may allow for an earlier Safari in July, even into Kenya. PLEASE contact me if you are interested.
The Tour will include time spent in Arusha at the School of St Jude, where we will visit a genuine Masai Boma (not a tourist commercial Boma), and the family of a St Jude's student in their home, plus various other activities.
The safari's will include 8 days in Serengeti, where we will stay in the best location to maximise our chance of witnessing the Wildebeest crossing the Mara River. We have some time in the Central area of the Serengeti, I feel this is the real Serengeti. Then we will head up to the top of the Serengeti National Park to find the main herds which should have gathered to cross the Mara River.
Plus a 2nd Safari to visit Olduvai Gorge, also known as Cradle of Mankind, a full day exploring the incredible Ngorongoro Crater, and 2 days at Lake Natron, an isolated Soda Lake containing up to 2 million Flamingo. This time of year, the Flamingo will be at the beginning of their nesting.
As usual, there is the option to end your trip with a bit of luxury and history on the beautiful island of Zanzibar. I am planning on 5 days here, there is so much to see with the amazing doors (rivalling those of Morocco) the stunning white beaches and the history of the slave trade.
A full itinerary is available for download above.
We will be going at the absolute peak of the season, and there are 2 Safari's.
