SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK SAFARI AND TOURS

Tanzania

Serengeti National Park is Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site. It’s famed for its annual migration, when more than six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Serengeti National Park also offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. Serengeti National Park offers good wildlife viewing throughout the year. June and July are the best months of seeing the wildebeest migration in Serengeti National Park while wildebeest calving is January and February.

Between January and March the wildebeest give birth on the short grass plains of the Southeastern Serengeti. This time of year attracts a vast plethora of predators, from lion to hyena, leopard and cheetah. As the grazing runs low in this area the wildebeest move to the central Serengeti and then the Western Corridor before crossing the Grumeti and Mara Rivers on their journey south in Kenya. Braving the jaws of some of Africa’s largest crocodiles, the river crossings are always a dramatic and emotional sight.

WHY VISIT SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK?

Serengeti National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Park is 1.5 million hectares. No matter how 'crowded' the park is, you will have thousands of hectares to yourself to explore Africa.

Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly one of the world’s most celebrated wilderness areas and is an ongoing source of inspiration to writers, filmmakers and photographers. The park is Tanzania’s oldest game reserve, renowned as the site of the annual Great Migration, when an estimated three million antelope – mostly wildebeest — migrate to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. This epic, seasonal journey is a deeply moving experience and a wonderful photographic subject.

The Serengeti is a Big Five Park with a huge concentration of cats. Over 500-plus bird species have been recorded in Serengeti National Park, ranging from the outsized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland, to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills.

Our expert guides passionately impart an incomparable wealth of knowledge, personally researched and experienced, about habitats, ecology, birds, trees, plants, animals and insects, providing our guests with enough memorable wildlife experiences to last a lifetime.
