Hi, late june to july is always a tricky time to predict were the migration will be. Its a draw between western and northern serengeti it can be in either of those 2 parts of serengeti. Unless if you incorporate both those parts in your itinirerary to maximize your chances.

We were there in late June this year. We stayed in Western Serengeti for 2 nights and had missed the migration by a week. We then had 2 nights in the central area and one of the days drove up to the northern area and did catch the migration there.

No one can guarantee where the migration will be with any certainty. You driver/guide will know when you get there and will take you to the migration. If you are in the Western area of the Serengeti to the Central area you will most probably see the migration, but no guarantees. The migration moves with rains and new grass, so it's kind of like predicting the weather, not all that accurate.

I'd recommend Mapito Tented Camp in the Ikoma region, Serengeti. I stayed there at the same time last year and the migration were all around.
