THE GREAT MIGRATION
During certain months of the year (typically June – October) the migratory herds of wildebeest and zebra make for one of the natural world’s most spectacular sights. River crossings, especially, are not to be missed. After dithering back and forth on the banks one brave wildebeest jumps in, with hundreds following behind. The migration is a phenomenon that must be seen to be believed. You’ll be mesmerized by the sights and sounds of the natural world at its most impressive. TAASA is ideally situated for the Northern Serengetti migration towards the Mara River.
TAASA offers excellent game viewing throughout the year
with our resident wildlife that do not migrate with the wildebeest and zebras.
Throughout the year, there are ample lion, cheetah and hyena. While on night drives you may also get to see
genet cats and serval cats. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot our resident leopard in the bush.
The world-famous Serengeti plains are a popular feeding grounds for herd animals, including buffalo, elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, eland, Thomsons gazelle, and the endangered rhino.
Tanzania is an ideal bird watching area with over 1,113 species of birds, including 800 resident and 300 migratory species. The lowland forest, acacia bush, and various rock formations make good nesting areas for the birds of the region.
Sometimes it's the smallest things in the bush that can draw unexpected attention. From colorful agama lizards, to Golden Orb spiders and hard working dung beetles, our guides will surprise you with stories about these small but mighty creatures.
