  • Zanzibar to Gorillas reviewer 1
    Written on September 25, 2017
    5.0 - Excellent

    The trip exceeded my expectations. Our guide Peter was amazing -he's an awesome cook, and made us 3 course meals. He was very knowledgeable and always had a smile on his face, even though he was working non stop. Our driver Steve was also awesome, especially in the Serengeti where he found us lions, Cheetahs, elephants.... I've been on other tours with different companies and Peter and Steve are 100% the best crew I've had. The campsites were good and the tents were comfortable. This tour is definitely value for money, the gorilla trek was the perfect way to end the trip and I'd definitely recommend it!

    When is the best time to view the migration?

    The prime time to visit the Serengeti in Tanzania is usually regarded as being from late November through to March when the big herds of wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle and zebra head on to the southern plains of the Serengeti.

    To get the best viewing on the other hand in Kenya's Masai Mara July through to September are usually regarded as the best months.
