Including all the areas frequented by the migration on their annual route, you will have the best opportunity to witness one of the most spectacular wildlife sightings in the world. From Arusha we visit Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, before experiencing the cultural heritage of the various tribal groups who live nearby. We spend a day exploring the Ngorongoro Crater then continue west to the world famous Serengeti National Park where we have a chance to view vast herds of grazing animals and the magnificent predators that follow them. Crossing the border into Kenya, we enjoy fantastic game viewing in the renowned Masai Mara National Reserve and Amboseli National Park. The undoubted highlight of the journey is our time in the rainforest of Uganda where we follow remote trails in the mist shrouded forests of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga National Park in search of the famous mountain gorillas.
