A lot of animals migrate to South Serengeti in December and January. Wildebeest or Gnu will be accompanied by Zebras, Grant Gazelle, etc but also, Lions, leopards, Cheetah, as the predator animals follow the chain to find the prey, meals. (This means, Masai Mara has scarce wildlife animals because wildebeest migration has moved to Serengeti). So the best time to go for Tanzania safari is December, January, and February, even up to March is Okay. This helps tourists to see many wildlife animals in a few days of a safari package to Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The Rainy season begins at the end of March, April, and May. In Southern Serengeti and Ndutu Ngorongoro, a lot of animals stay there up to April/May, when they start moving northward toward central and North Serengeti.
The benefits of going for wildlife safaris in Tanzania during December, January, and February are that tourists will see many more animals in just a few days of a safari tour. Booking a safari holiday of 4 days to Serengeti and Ngorongoro is enough to watch the big 5 Africa animals. This means you save money which would be spent on booking safari in other seasons because you will need more days to see many animals you like.
