Great Migration Wildlife visit tanzania

The great migration is known for the nearly 2 million wildebeests, zebras, and other animals who hitch a ride on this epic trip. As they follow the circular trek in search of fresh food and water, many animals become prey to the crocodiles who await them at the river crossings. Aside from the great migration, Tanzania is one of Africa’s most biodiverse countries. “It is home to many of Africa’s iconic wildlife species, with lions, elephants and giraffes roaming the Serengeti and black rhinos, zebras and buffalo gathering to drink in Ngorongoro Crater.” Visiting 3 national parks, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara ensures that guests will see a wide variety of Tanzania’s animal kingdom.

Meet the Maasai Tribe

A Gondwana trip wouldn’t be complete without visiting the locals. On the Serengeti, this means meeting the Maasai. A semi-nomadic tribe with centuries of history and tradition, they move between northern Tanzania and southern Kenya to find fresh grazing land for their cattle. Learn about their customs, their traditional jumping dance, and their unmistakeable garments while spending time with their community. Gondwana has been visiting the Maasai in Tanzania for several years, and we have strong connections with our hosts. We believe that cultural exchange benefits both the traveler and the host, which is why we donate a portion of trip proceeds to the Maasai Water Security Initiative.
