Seeing the Serengeti wildebeest migration by mobile canvas
In order to feel the true essence of safari it is important that you spend time under canvas. We would argue that the closer you are to nature the more genuine the safari. All too often lodges are built in contrast to the environment in which they are set. A mobile tented safari, however, could not be more appropriate as a traditional way of experiencing the joys of the bush.
Combine this sense of closeness with nearly 2 million wildebeest in your backyard and you have the ingredients for the ultimate interface between adventure and nature. The annual wildebeest migration is one of the greatest wildlife spectacles left on earth.
In pursuit of the wildebeest migration, we would normally suggest that you combine two geographic areas of the Serengeti – which combination of areas would depend on the time of year. A private guide and vehicle would allow you complete flexibility to plan each day according to your interests.
For a 10 night safari in northern Tanzania, to combine 7 nights in two seasonal tented camps in the Serengeti National Park, with an additional 3 nights in Tarangire National Park, costs would start from US$ 8,700/ UK£ 5,500 per person.
