Even though the heavy rains are on the horizon in March, game viewing in Tanzania’s Serengeti is still very good at this time of year. The migration is in full swing and the newborn wildebeest have boosted the Great Migration to its heaviest herds.
Tanzania’s Northern Circuit is a very good destination in March – indeed, the Serengeti is outrageously good throughout January, February and March, with the park being the finest place in Africa to view cheetah at this time of year. The sheer concentration of predators on the huge open plains is astonishing. We also use a couple of camps down in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (effectively an extension of the Serengeti), which offer in addition some of the finest cultural interactions and walking operations on the continent. Designing a trip around the Serengeti and Ngorongoro is a superb trip for March, and one that can be very good value, as many of the camps have dropped their rates to ‘low’ season.
