The world's most famous wildlife park that hosts the most spectacular migration of the Wildebeest. Only a 4+ day safari makes it logistically possible to reach these grasslands.
With more days at hand you can stay more than a day in one of the national parks. Most people chose 2 days in Serengeti to increase their chances of witnessing the Wildebeest migration.
Is a 5-6 Day Safari for Me?
There's no better way to see the wildebeest migration in action and see the amazing parks that have made Tanzania so famous. 5-6 days allows you to spend a very reasonable amount of time in the Serengeti (2-4 nights). You'll of course also explore Ngorongoro and Manyara or Tarangire National Parks. You can either do the tour by land (circle itinerary) or fly back from the Serengeti to remove the backtracking. The cost of this trip can be lowered by chosing the adventurous budget camping. If you prefer lodges or tented camps, there is plenty of choice of 3 to 5 star accommodations to suit everyone.
