WHAT IS THE BEST SEASON FOR A SAFARI?
Just about any time of year. However, the most popular seasons are mid December to mid March and July to mid September. This is because of the demand for Christmas and winter holidays and the summer school breaks. An increasing number of visitors are realising that June and October are ideal, benefiting from lower visitor numbers.

WHEN AND WHERE CAN I SEE THE GREAT MIGRATION?
The millions of wildebeest and zebras are always somewhere, but they are not always in large herds and on the move. Their location is largely dependent on the weather, which can vary considerably from year to year. In general the herds assemble south of the Serengeti during January and February, the season in which they give birth to their young. Starting around March they begin moving north and west in search of fresh grazing through the Serengeti Park.

CAN I HAVE A PRIVATE VEHICLE?
Yes. All safaris can be booked with the exclusive use of a vehicle for your party. A custom safari for two clients is significantly more expensive per person than seats on a similar small group safari. However, on a custom safari with an exclusive vehicle, the cost of the vehicle and driver/ guide are divided by the number of clients sharing the vehicle.

CAN I HAVE MY OWN ITINERARY?
If you are arranging an exclusive vehicle (custom) safari, then you are free to arrange whatever itinerary you choose, within logistical constraints.

SHOULD I TAKE A CAMPING SAFARI?
Kibo Trekking provides luxury mobile camping and Kibo's Tented semi-permanent camp. Both of these options are more expensive for groups less than four. Luxury mobile camping works out to be almost twice the price of regular lodge - based safaris. However, there is a popular option combining top lodges with permanent tented campsites in an exclusive vehicle safari which works out at a very competitive price.

CAN I TAKE A SAFARI AS A SINGLE TRAVELLER?
Because of the size of its organisation and volume of customers, Kibo trekking can easily include single travellers on most set date safari departures, subject to there being at least one other booking on the date chosen.

ARE SAFARIS SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
A safari is a wonderful trip for any child old enough to enjoy and appreciate the experience. On most safaris there are quite long trips on rough roads, and these cannot really be recommended for babies and very young children.
