Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is widely considered the premier destination for a safari in Tanzania, and for good reason. Here’s why:

The Great Migration: This awe-inspiring annual event sees over 2 million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles thunder across the plains, following the rains in search of fresh grazing. Witnessing this spectacle is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the Serengeti is the best place to do it.

Unparalleled wildlife: Beyond the migration, the Serengeti is home to an incredible array of animals, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhinoceros), cheetahs, giraffes, hippos, and over 500 bird species. You’re practically guaranteed to see something amazing on every game drive.

Diverse landscapes: The Serengeti is not just endless plains. It also boasts acacia woodlands, kopjes (rocky outcrops), and the Grumeti River, offering a variety of scenery and habitats to explore.

Excellent infrastructure: The park is well-equipped for tourism, with a good network of roads, airstrips, and lodges and camps to suit all budgets. This makes it easy to plan your safari and have a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Conservation efforts: The Serengeti is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a major focus of conservation efforts. By visiting, you’re supporting the protection of this vital ecosystem.

Tanzania has other great safari destinations, such as the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park.

If you’re looking for the ultimate safari experience, the Serengeti is simply unbeatable.

Here are some additional things to consider when planning your Serengeti safari:

  • The best time to visit: The dry season (June to October) is generally the best time for wildlife viewing, as the animals are concentrated around water sources. However, the Great Migration can be seen at different times of year in different parts of the park.
  • Where to stay: There are a variety of lodges and camps to choose from, from luxurious tented camps to budget-friendly campsites. Consider your budget and preferences when making your decision.
  • What to do: Game drives are the most popular activity, but you can also go hot air ballooning, visit a Maasai village, or take a walking safari.
