Selecting the Best Migration Safari Accommodation – Essential Tips

Accommodations are chosen according to what you really want to see and the budget you have for your safari. Prior planning is advised for lodges, as some seasons are loaded with many guests. To avoid any complications and dilemmas, book as soon as you can to get the best experience.

Location of the accommodations is crucial if you want to witness the trekking animals crossing rivers to reach lands with sufficient pasture and water. You should select a camping site or lodge strategically positioned within the national parks of Serengeti and Maasai Mara. Mobile camps are often preferred for their flexibility, offering both private and public sites along with delicious meals. Don’t forget to pack safari jackets, suitable shoes, a first aid kit, insect repellent, and other essentials.

Hiring a knowledgeable tour guide is essential. An experienced game ranger will direct you to the right camping sites, whether they are humble, moderate, or luxury, depending on your budget and the perfect locality where migrations occur. Plan your trip before your flight to ensure you have the opportunity to see wildebeests, zebras, gazelles, and the carnivores.

Safari safety protocols are important. Certain questions must be asked before deciding to go on any safari. Are there security personnel provided in the national parks, or are residential campsites well fenced from wild animals? Does the national park have an ambulance or first aid facilities? These questions are crucial and should be asked since hospitals may be a little far in case of an emergency. Don’t forget to inquire about the history of any previous attacks to ensure your safety.

Check what is included in the safari package. Always read through any package before making a final decision. Ensure that your budget covers food, transportation to your place of rest, and extra activities. Luxury camps are an excellent choice since they often cover most of the things you may need while in the field.

Consider the reputation of the safari company. A good name is better than riches, so always follow up to determine whether the tourism company you want to handle your safari provides the best services and is trustworthy. Beware of scams or unreliable companies.

Some of the accommodations include Nyasi Migration Camp, Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge, Lamai Serengeti in Tanzania, Singita Sasakwa Lodge in Tanzania, Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge, Kichakani Serengeti Camp, Asilia Olakira Migration Camp in Tanzania, and many others.

Look no further than Kenya and Tanzania for migration safaris because that’s where you can experience the full variety.
