the best places to go on safari in july
It’s time to see some serious action. If you want dramatic river crossings with the Great Migration in full flow then head to the western Serengeti in Tanzania. Sightings can never be guaranteed as the migration itself is an ever-evolving beast, following the rains and fluctuating each year based around the ever changing weather patterns. The Western corridor of the Serengeti however will maximise your chances as the herds start their move northwards towards the fresh grasses of the northern savannah and then on into the southern plains of the Masai Mara in Kenya, crossing the indomitable Grumeti River along the way.
Some of the best camps to be based at around this time include Grumeti River Camp or even some of the super luxurious Singita Camps based in the Grumeti Reserves.
