Great Migration

Highlight: Join us on an optional walk from the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater to the Serengeti. This is a hike that Jo Ann has always wanted to do, and it can only be done at certain times of the year.

Hosted By Jo Ann & Gene Taylor


Tanzania's rich diversity will come to life on this intimate journey of a lifetime. From the magic of the vast plains of the Serengeti to the mystical Ngorongoro Crater and highlands to the world-famous Mara River, you will be in the heart of one of Africa's richest wildlife reserves. This is where the magic happens!

We'll start at the World Heritage site, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, with game drives within the crater and a fantastic walk on the rim where you can view BOTH the crater and the Serengeti at the same time.


We'll explore the Southern Serengeti, where our mobile camp is perfectly positioned to maximize your wildlife experience.


The Northern Serengeti is where the Mara River hippos wallow, and huge herds of wildebeest, antelope, and zebra make their way north. Along with them come the elephants and big cats prowl: Lion, leopard, and cheetah are on the hunt.

There is an overwhelming amount of wildlife, optional walks, and hikes that take you through some of the most beautiful places on the Serengeti.


Join Walking Connection co-founders Gene and JoAnn Taylor on this small-group safari. They'll open the door to this natural world and bring you uniquely global perspectives.

DAY ONE- Welcome to Arusha, Tanzania

The quaint lodge is situated at the base of Mt. Meru, with views of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance. Lake Duluti Lodge is a fine countryside retreat within a coffee estate that perfectly combines an authentic African rural setting with outstanding amenities and service. Though we are only here for a short duration, the welcoming hospitality and warm smiles are your introduction to warm African hospitality. 

DAY TWO- Head To The Highlands

Transfer by vehicle to the highlands with a full day of adventure along the way. Travel on through the rich Karatu farm country, reaching the forest that welcomes you to the highlands of Ngorongoro Conservation Area.  Catch your first glimpse of the crater as you make your way to the beautifully constructed and inspired camp. B,L,D

DAY THREE- Ngorongoro Crater - SAFARI

The Ngorongoro Crater is still a lambent lost world of wildlife, giving us flashes of how the first humans must have experienced it. As the sun rises over the perfect bowl of the Crater you will descend for a morning game drive onto the caldera’s floor which over 25,000 wild creatures call home. 

Return back to the rim in the early afternoon for lunch at the camp. Spend the afternoon with a visit to a nearby Maasai Village. An optional walk is also available. B,L,D


DAYS FOUR, FIVE & SIX- The Southern Serengeti - Safari

Each year, the camp casts off from the north and begins its own odyssey. Covering hundreds of miles and moving every couple of months along a route the herds have traveled for hundreds of years, Serengeti Safari Camp is where you come for your migration fix.


Our guides understand the Serengeti seasons and game movements well and how best to mirror them in this little nomadic camp. B,L,D Daily

DAYS SEVEN, EIGHT & NINE- The Northern Serengeti - Safari

Explore by safari vehicles to experience the intricacies of the area, both south of the hippo-filled Mara River and (river permitting) to the north, where it is your option to get out for a walking safari.


And, of course, with a location like this, one of the best ways to take in the Serengeti is literally from the expansive veranda of your room, tucked away among the red rocks of the kopje. B,L,D Daily

DAY TEN- Oh No It's Time To Go!

After lunch depart with a game drive to the Kogatende airstrip. Return flight to Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) for your evening flight back to the USA. B,L

What's Included?


We'll help you get ready. Walking Connection Adventure Specialists will help you plan and prepare for an amazing journey. We can make pre and post-stays anywhere in Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya or the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa. We provide a detailed “Know Before You Go” information including recommended website, reading lists, packing list, what to bring, weather, and more. Plus, we're always available to answer questions by email, voice, text or WhatsApp.

Private Accommodations

Four and Five Star accommodations await you. Though the star system of rating hotels is always subjective, and doesn't accurately relate or apply to remote safari accommodations, our private lodges and camp's warmth and welcoming hospitality make them the best of the best. Double occupancy (two beds) is standard, but Kings are available, and single travelers are always welcome. All come with world-class amenities and services.


Food & Beverage
When you think of African cuisine, think of traditional Western European and Asian cuisines with a local flair. Breakfast is hearty; lunch could be a safari picnic engulfed by meandering wildebeest or a relaxing by-the-pool affair. Sundowners on a ridgeline as the sun sets over the distant savannah with the lone acacia tree, and dinners are chef-prepared masterpieces. Always sumptuous, and the only way to go hungry here is to try. House drinks are included while on Safari. 


Hosted, Guided Adventures and Walks
Professionally, safety-accredited guides bring the Serengeti and its culture to life. Mostly Maasai, they are full-time residents with a passion for sharing their lives and the places where they live. With no more than six in a safari vehicle, there is space to move and relax as you experience a "safari massage" during our game drives. Our safari walks are about experiencing the smaller wildlife and culture of the savannah. They are always at your choice.   Gene and Jo Ann Taylor, Walking Connection owners, are your hosts throughout. 


Safari Casual - Traveling Light - Photography

Preparing for your adventure is the key to a successful holiday. Our packing list and tips will help you bring what you need and as importantly, leave behind what you don't. Many guests memorialize their safari experience with pictures along the way. Whether you're snapping pics with your phone, or an experienced photographer, Gene will share his experience with you to help you get the shots that will bring back memories for years to come.
