the best places to go in september
September proves time and time again to be one of our favourite months for East Africa. Avoiding the peak holiday months why not combine tracking the mountain gorillas of Rwanda with a Big Five safari in Tanzania or Kenya… September means the peak season crowds have dissipated, you avoid the rainy season, however the wildebeest migration is still in full flow. If you want to see river crossings and thousands of wildebeest and zebra running the gauntlet, then northern Tanzania is the place to go as the herds make their way from the northern Serengeti savannah to the southern plains of the Masai Mara.
Some of the best camps to base yourself so you can capture the action include Sayari, Lamai Serengeti or the mobile camps of Olakira and Ubuntu.
