When to Travel to Dunia
Peak season in the Serengeti is June to October when it’s driest, but there’s plenty to see all year round.
The Great Migration wildebeest herds are within driving distance of Dunia Camp for most of the year except August to October, when they have crossed the Mara River into the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The busiest months for tourism are July and August. If you’re looking for fewer crowds, we recommend travelling at a different time of year, if possible.
