Below you can see the Migration maps and following the season Sima Safari will take you the area where the Migration is there.

Our recommendation in the Serengeti is to use the luxury tented camps as your favor accommodation lodges rather then the structural lodges.
• More wild and living in the bush,
• Rooms are in high standard only design to be in a big tent structure than a regular room ( see picture below)
• Less costly
Nevertheless we are providing other lodges structure with cement
