The annual migration of antelopes and zebras is a drama of life and death, lurking predators, happy rescues, the rumble of hooves of 1.2 million wildebeests and 200,000 zebras. Ungulates make their circular cycle, moving in the wake of rains and fresh pastures from Serengeti to Masai Mara and vice versa, this cycle never stops. The wildebeest migration is the most numerous mammalian migrations on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of animals walk through the Serengeti and Masai Mara valleys, crossing rivers and covering hundreds of kilometers on their way to fresh pastures. In order to see the grandiose spectacle of nature, many people choose tours to Kenya and Tanzania from August to November, when the show reaches its climax. Therefore, the emphasis in the programs is placed on a longer stay in the Serengeti Park. For those who want to relax on the ocean coast after a safari, the beaches of Mombasa and Zanzibar are offered.

The Serengeti is the quintessence of African wildlife: millions of animals inhabit these hilly shrouds. Unsurprisingly, the Serengeti is an iconic safari destination.
The landscapes of the park are majestic and diverse, endless plains, rivers, hills, rocky plateaus.
Serengeti National Park is located in northwestern Tanzania between Ngorongoro and Lake Victoria, and covers an area slightly larger than the whole of Montenegro.
In the north, it borders Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve.
This conservation area is one of the last areas on Earth where you can get a front row seat to watch a great wildlife show - the largest migration of ungulates on the planet.
Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which takes its name from the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera, formed two to three million years ago.
About 25,000 large animals live in a natural amphitheater of nature, formed by a 300 km2 crater. It is believed that the density of predators per square meter is the highest here. It was recently recognized as one of Africa's Seven New Natural Wonders.
Tarangire is a park for those who want to step a little further off the beaten track to find themselves in a truly wilderness. Boasting large herds of elephants and buffaloes, as well as a remarkable concentration of big cats, Tarangire National Park is one of the best national parks in Tanzania. The African Wild Dog, Kudu, Oryx and Gerenuk, rarely found in other parks in the Northern District, can also be found here, along with arguably the best bird diversity in Africa. More than 550 species are attracted by its vibrant swamps. During the dry season from August to October, Tarangire is home to the largest number of mammals of any known national park in Tanzania.
Rich in game and one of Tanzania's smaller wilderness enclaves, Lake Manyara National Park is a gorgeous area. There are several natural areas in the park. The waters of the lake cover two-thirds of the park, while the rest of the Manyara ecosystem is made up of high mountain slopes, flowering marshes, dense forests, wide grassy areas and hot springs.
It is considered a special luck to see the famous tree-climbing Lions Manyara. Another highlight of the park is forest elephants, which can only be seen here. Stop by the lake to admire a variety of bird species, including the pink flamingo. Here you can always see large flocks of baboons and giraffes. From ungulates, wildebeest frolic on the shore of the lake, and massive buffaloes with impressive horns revel in oozing muddy shoals. The elusive leopard and cape otter catch the eye of some lucky ones.
