In Tanzania we have 3 major seasons for wildlife safari, the great river crossing wildebeest migration in northern Serengeti (July to September), Migration safari during calving season in southern Serengeti (December to March) and low season grand lodge safari which you will benefit from discounted lodges/ hotels rates hence stay in luxury lodges and pay less (April & May).
