6 Days Tanzania Migration Safari (May –June) : This popular 6 Days Tanzania migration safari travel itinerary includes both the Seronera area (central Serengeti National Park) and Western corridor (Grumeti River region) where the herds can be seen from the Months of May to June.
Great Migration herds start to spread west across the plains of Seronera in Central Serengeti and Western Corridor (western Serengeti) in the Grumeti region by the end of April to May. The Western corridor is one of the areas where the migrating animals are forced to cross the Grumeti River. This normally happens when the animals leave the southern plains and begin heading north.
