Q: What is the migration? 
A: The great extraordinary animal kingdom migration is an annual migration of about 1 million wildebeest, 300000 zebras and 200000 gazelles migrating from Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro crater and contiguous Masai Mara National Reserve searching for fresh grasses as well as water. This is a honeymoon (easy to hunt) period for the crocodile in Grumeti River and other carnivores such as lion and leopard while the migration is taking place.

 You can buy any drinks along your way to the Tanzania safari. There will be mini-markets in town and also you can have some at your hotel or lodge that you will spend an overnight there.

Q: What’s the food like on the safari?
 With modernized World most of the lodges and tented camps serve breakfast and dinner, typically buffet-style. European, Asian and African cuisines are served in a high standard. Due to the fact that you will be spending your afternoon doing game drive often you will have to take your lunch box with you.

If by chance the itinerary shows that you will take your hot lunch at the hotel then there is no need of packed lunch. Basically lunch at the lodge follows with a rest before proceeding with late afternoon game drive.
