Rwanda/ Serengeti trip

I am planning a trip for 2013 to go to Rwanda and the Serengeti. When would be the best time to see both the mountain gorillas and the great migration?

We've just got back and were lucky to do both. So I'd have to say in May you are in with a good chance, bear in mind that nothing is set in concrete where wildlife is concerned.Also the advantage of less crowds.

Serengeti is good between may to early July

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda can be done during any month of the year.

Sometimes you get lucky! We were there in October and were fortunate enough to see a river crossing by the migrating wildebeest in the North of the Serengeti. One got taken by a croc right in front of us. Was an awe-inspiring experience.

Gorillas are pretty much good all year round - you may want to avoid the rainy season in Rwanda, which is March-May.

migration starts from Early July to late September some times it may go towards October depending on the weather. so you can decide within that time frame, though mountain gorilla trekking is good all year around .

What's a good company that combines trips to the gorillas in Rwanda and the Serengeti?
