Going on a Game Viewing Safari

The majority of wildlife viewing safaris undertaken by visitors to Tanzania aim to see as much varied wildlife as possible. Before planning a safari then, it's helpful to have an idea of wildlife movements.

It is a well-established phenomenon in Tanzania that broadly speaking, where one may expect to find game is closely connected to where we find the Wildebeest Migration throughout the year.

This is because predators gravitate towards dense wildebeest populations to faciltate predation, and herbivores will move towards where the grazing is best, and of course this criterion this is the primary driver for the wildebeest themselves.

This diagram demonstrates, very approximaely, where we would expect to find the Wildebeest Migration throughout the year, so when requesting specific national parks and conservation aeas to be included within your safari itinerary, please bear these movements in mind.

Alternatively, just let your coordinator what kind of expectations you have for your safari - maximum game sightings; avoidance of crowds of other visitors; incorporating a cultural or adventurous element that gets you out of the vehicle - and let your coordinator propose a customised itinerary to you that they believe will provide you with the greatest satisfaction.
