Walk Among the Great Migration: Southern to Central Serengeti
Experience the 2-million strong migration herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle in a unique way on this walking adventure that takes you from the far southern Serengeti to the central Serengeti over several days. A true once-in-a-lifetime experience that gets you closer to the action as the herds graze and calve on the southern savannah plains.
Arrive at Kimondo (or earlier if you wish to do some game drives in the region), located in the Kusini area in the southern tip of the Serengeti. You can choose an afternoon of leisure in camp or head out on a game drive to explore the region. Your Wayo walking safari guide will meet you this evening to discuss the next days of walking before you enjoy a delicious dinner under the African stars with other guests.
Good To Know
About this Asilia Adventure
Enjoy a unique perspective of travelling on foot among one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles, the Great Migration of 2 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. During December and March, the mega-herds of grazers give birth to their young, graze on the nutrient-rich grasslands of the southern Serengeti and begin to move northward in search of fresh grazing.
Your walking expedition will take you right through the heart of the migration, surrounding you with the unforgettable soundtrack of wildebeest grunts, snorts and thundering of hooves as you travel from the southern tip of the Serengeti to the central heart of the national park. Perhaps you will bear witness to a new wildebeest calf or zebra foal being born or see the black tip of a lion’s tail swish in the grass as it lies in wait for an old or injured animal to cross its path. Whatever your experience, this is a thrilling way to explore the sights and sounds of the Great Migration up close.
