Crocodiles lay patiently beneath the surface of the Mara River as the first of the vast herds begin their journey to the lush grass of the Serengeti’s Western corridor.
Survey the plains of the Serengeti by hot air balloon or safari vehicle with andBeyond, as they turn into a hot spot in June, with 260,000 zebra, 1.7 million wildebeest and 470,000 gazelles navigating woodland and river lines in unison.
Like clockwork, your very own butler and the warmth of the sun will greet you each day in the comfort and luxury of andBeyond’s private accommodation, and so too will the awe-inspiring sight of wildebeests a mere stone’s throw away. The spacious tents of the semi-permanent andBeyond Serengeti Under Canvas are perfect for families or those following the movements of the annual migration, with the wonder of the Serengeti bringing out the David Attenborough in us all.
The most secluded corners of the African bush are home to the Big Five – the lion, African elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros, but lie open to be explored by guests at the award winning andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. Perched on the edge of the crater and surrounded by an endless savannah, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to 25,000 animals 365 days a year, including cheetah, white and black rhino and nyala antelope. From May to August the newly refurbished andBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp, which overlooks a pool frequented by hippos, offers dramatic scenes of herds of wildebeest with young in tow crossing the crocodile-riddled Grumeti River, the ultimate Great Migration event.
Experience the Great Migration in June with andBeyond’s all-inclusive 8-night ‘Treasures of Tanzania’ itinerary, from $10 213 USD per person including all accommodation, game drives, safari activities, meals and drinks, laundry, air and road transfers and national park fees.
