If you want to witness the famous Great Migration, you will need some luck. It is difficult to determine exactly when the animals will be in which location; it remains a natural phenomenon and is different every year. Generally, the animals migrate from Serengeti to the north and to the Masai Mara in Kenya in June/July. Around July/August, they cross the Mara river. From October/November, they migrate back to the grasslands of Serengeti.

Tanzania is generally a safe country to travel around. However, we recommend leaving noticeable and expensive jewelry at home or in the hotel when going out in the evenings. Our guides are always available for you and will ensure that you never have to walk alone in the streets, if necessary.

 

During the safari, we advise against wearing dark colors (black, blue, dark brown, and dark red) as these colors attract insects. Wearing light colors such as khaki is preferred. In the morning and evening, it can be quite chilly. Our tip is to bring a sweater. When traveling to Zanzibar, it is expected to cover your shoulders and knees when leaving the accommodation. Of course, you can wear swimwear in the hotel or on the beach.
