Serengeti national park

Home of the Great Migration

Why book with us?

Overview

Perhaps the most famous park on the continent, the Serengeti is 13,200 square kilometres & home to the world-famous great wildebeest migration, a wildlife phenomenon second to none. Unknown to many, the migration of around 2.5 million wildebeest and zebra occurs year-round in Tanzania in a clock-wise circular motion covering an 800 kilometre route. With the world’s largest migrating herds enjoying the best grazing grounds, this also brings the largest concentrations of predators on the planet. The landscape of endless plains is typical of what we have come to expect on an African safari and this park does not disappoint. It gets busy due to its popularity but there are still places where one can visit without sharing with the crowds and, after almost 30 years on the ground in Tanzania, we know just those places.

The Wildlife

Whilst the main reason for many to visit Serengeti is for the migration, a safari away from the herds and hoards can be special too. The migration itself consists of around 2.5 million wildebeest & 300,000 zebra as well as thousands of smaller antelope like gazelle and impala all on the move together looking for the sweetest grasses. With this abundance of food roaming the plains, the predators are never far behind with approximately 4000 lion and huge numbers of cheetah, leopard and Hyena following the herds. You can also see topi, eland, hartebeest, buffalo, elephant, caracal, serval, bat-eared fox, hyrax, genet, hares, porcupine, aardvark, giraffe, jackal, mongoose, crocodile, monitor lizard, aardwolf, many kinds of primates including baboons, vervet and colobus monkeys, and over 500 species of bird. Phenomenal.

Best time to visit Serengeti

How to get to Serengeti

There are daily schedule flights from Arusha into the Serengeti. Alternatively, you can be met by a game drive car and driver guide at Mwanza airport or Kilimanjaro airport and your tour can start here. If you are flying in and out of Dar es Salaam, that works too as you can simply connect to a flight north to Mwanza and be met there to start your tour.

Most visitors to Serengeti start there tour either West at Mwanza airport or East at Kilimanjaro airport and then their tour to Serengeti starts there with other parks in between. Most people combine a visit to Serengeti with Ngorongoro too.
