11 Day Tanzania Women Experience Safari

TOUR OVERVIEW:

TANZANIA GREAT MIGRATION – NORTHERN SERENGETI to CENTRAL SERENGETI

In this itinerary of 11 Days – the Tanzania Wildebeest Migration will occasionally occurs From July, August to September, at the Mara River in Northern Serengeti affords the most dramatic river crossings. At the extreme northern end of the Serengeti National Park, privileged observers can overlook the climax of the mass migration whilst they enjoy the newly conceded comforts of safari travel in Tanzania. Fierce and deep, cliff-sided and rain-swollen, the river takes an enormous toll of the exhausted and terrified wild cattle that surge through its torrential flow, some drowning helplessly, foundering in narrow defiles, floundering in mud, falling victim to crocodile, staggering, exhausted to dry land and often, in confusion, returning to the same scene of their ordeal allowing the cycle to repeat itself.

On a Serengeti North Mara River Safari with us, you can realize that this is home of wildlife, the ungainly animals demonstrate their strength and courage, each an expendable unit of a single wildebeest herd entity determined to survive. Within a landscape defined by starkly rising hills of the western escarpment beyond the golden plains, the struggle continues as the slightly depleted migration herd staggers onward, still trailed by hundreds of hopeful predators. In this untouched wilderness, there are year-round delights; memorable concentrations of big game, portly hippopotamus and grinning crocodile. It is the season of cheetahs, leopards and lionesses with their young cubs. Numerous small mammals hide in the rive rine woodlands. Climbing hyrax, mongoose and nocturnal bush babies inhabit the fig trees.Greet wildebeest Migration will lead you to remaining unforgettable memories/safari you have never experience.

Tipping:

Tipping is of course discretionary, but is an expected part of the way in which business is done in Tanzania. It counts as an expression of gratitude to those who – hopefully – have made your experience an unforgettable one and enables you to directly reward those people.

Our passengers come from all around the world, with different cultural attitudes to tipping, but a tip is of great significance here in Tanzania and will be hugely appreciated by the recipient. We know that the act of giving of a tip can be a bit awkward and we would suggest that the best way to remove this ‘awkwardness’ is for each couple to put their tip anonymously into an envelope and for the envelopes to be presented by the couple to the staff member.
