7 Days Wildebeest Rut

Tanzania has never been disappointed when it comes to African wildlife safari holidays, the wildlife drama during the Wildebeest Migration is one of the greatest wildlife shows on the entire continent.

Western Serengeti and central Serengeti national park play host to wildebeest mating season during May and June where the wildebeest cows go heat causing strain among the wildebeest bulls, this can be a classic Tanzania safari, usually, there are fewer travelers during this time of the year making it a great time to visit Tanzania national parks.

  • Following the wildebeest herds
  • Game drives in the Serengeti
  • Game drives in the Ngorongoro crater
  • Game drives in Tarangire national park
