Explore the Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania, Africa, and the highest peak on the continent at 5,895 meters. It has three volcanic cones, with Kibo being the highest. It is world’s highest free standing mountain in the words. Kilimanjaro is a popular destination for hikers and climbers, with various routes available. It has a unique ecosystem that includes rainforest, alpine desert, and glaciers. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and holds cultural significance to the Chagga people.


Witness the Greatest show on Earth

The Serengeti Wildebeest Migration is a yearly event that occurs in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It involves millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles traveling across the park in search of fresh grazing and water. The migration follows a circular route, covering around 1,800 miles, and occurs in response to seasonal rainfall patterns. The migration is a significant natural phenomenon that attracts tourists from around the world to witness the spectacle of millions of animals moving in unison. It is also a crucial event for the local ecosystem, as the migration helps distribute nutrients and supports the diverse wildlife in the area.

When and where to go?


There is a chance of rain, the temperature is getting higher and the humidity is building. It’s still a good time to go as rates are lower and safari is excellent. At this time of year the migration herds are in the southeast of the Serengeti for calving season, so the Ndutu Plains are busy but it is amazing to see so many animals in one place.


Migration is still occurring in Ndutu. The weather is hot and humid with a chance of rain.


Migrating herds are starting to leave Ndutu, heading west toward Grumeti. This is truly low season, before the heavy rains but with humidity building. Great rates can be taken advantage of at this time of year.


This is a period of heavy rain, so we would advise against traveling at this time. 


This is also a period of heavy rain, so we would advise against traveling at this time. 


This is the green season, bringing lush grasses and bush that can make spotting game more difficult. However, this is still a wonderful time to travel — particularly for bird watchers as parks are full of migratory birds; especially in the south. Migration should be in the Grumeti area of the Serengeti heading north.


This is the start of the peak season. The Migration is in the north of the Serengeti moving toward Kenya, and elephant start to gather in Tarangire. The land is getting drier and spotting game is becoming easier. Temperatures are in the 80°Fs and the humidity is low.


This is Tanzania travel peak season. Migration is still in the north. As the land becomes more parched, the animals’ behavior becomes more predictable. The dense bush in Ruaha is drying out so game spotting here becomes much easier.


Peak season. The end of the migration is still in the north, with herds on both sides of the Kenya and Tanzania borders and high numbers of elephant in Tarangire. The northern circuit can be very busy, but it is less busy in the south, so for those who want to avoid crowds it’s best to visit the southern parks.


Peak season. The migration is now in Kenya, but the game viewing in central Serengeti is still very good. Southern parks are particularly rewarding at this time of year.


Short rains. This is a great time to take advantage of low season rates and is still a popular time to travel. The rains tend to be overnight, but there is a risk of rain during the day as well. Migrating herds are starting to travel south from Kenya, so crossings can be seen in the north of the Serengeti.


There is a chance of rain, but this is generally overnight. Temperatures and humidity start to build. Safari is good, with migrating herds in the north traveling south to Ndutu. The festive season can be very busy and needs to be planned well in advance to ensure availability.
