The wildebeest, seemingly assembled from the wreckage of all the other plains species, is one of Africa’s most charismatic creatures. Despite the appearance of an evolutionary calamity, it is also one of the most successful. When herds around two million strong gather together to migrate between the southern parts of the Serengeti National Park and the Masai Mara Game Reserve, you find one of the most dramatic wildlife events on the planet.

Walk with the Wildebeest Migration

This June Aardvark Safaris is offering guests the opportunity to walk with the annual wildebeest migration as it crosses Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. The eight-day walking safari starts in the central Serengeti and follows the path of the migrating herds into the northern Serengeti, walking between 15 – 20 kilometres per day. Hiking routes are away from tracks and vehicles, enabling guests to access areas off-limits to ‘normal’ visitors.
