8 Days and 7 Nights Private Wildebeest Crossing Safari

It’s an exclusive 8Days and 7Nights in Serengeti that holds a lifetime Safari in Mara River that harbors the largest across-migration of Animals in the wild. It’s a place where the nature shows how cruel it can be and it’s where life and death both comes at hand. With the dwindling of floods and mud while the Nile crocodile watch and act. “It’s what you don’t need to miss”.

The annual movement of wildebeest and other herbivores across the Northern Serengeti-Mara River ecosystem consists of more than 1.5 million wildebeest, 400,000 zebra, 18,000 eland and 200,000 Thompson’s gazelle. The Migration is rarely the same in terms of precise timing and direction.
