Northern Tanzania Migration Safari

Inspirational safari holiday to Tanzania

Tanzania's northern circuit is Africa's most celebrated safari area with phenomenal game concentrations and an astounding diversity of landscape. Due to seasonal wildlife movements, your experience of the northern circuit relies on expert knowledge in the careful selection of area and camp for the right time of year, particularly if you wish to see the annual wildebeest migration. This unforgettable journey takes you to 3 of the circuit's most well-known parks, the Tarangire National Park, famous for its elephant herds and beautiful baobabs, the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, and of course the Serengeti, probably Africa's most densely rich wildlife area, and home to the wildebeest migration.

Staying in a selection of Lemala camps, you will be in the heart of the wilderness, allowing you a deep connection with the environment. At the same time, you can expect exceptional guides, first-class cuisine and superior comfort and service.
