A tailor-made safari during mating season in the Serengeti wildebeest migration, designed to get you to the heart of the action, at a quiet time of year.

The wildebeest migration isn't all about river crossings...One of our favourite times is late May when the herds - in their hundreds of thousands - begin to move off the southern plains on their long journey north.  After a period of plenty, spent happily grazing on the mineral-rich grasses of the southern Serengeti the wildebeest "chaps" are feeling a little bit frisky and are ready for action.

Expect cavorting, showmanship, standoffs, the odd head to head tussle and long, long lines of wildebeest, looking purposeful, but heading in totally different directions.  Also, at this time of year, you can expect not to see too many other tourists…which we really like.

Rumour has it that Catherine Ronan used to be a spy. We find this slightly hard to believe as she loves nothing more than to divulge her travel secrets and infect other people with her enthusiasm.
