Serengeti Safaris

The Serengeti is Africa's most famous park. Renowned for its incredible concentrations of predators and the Great Serengeti Migration of two million wildebeest, the Serengeti guarantees an exceptional safari. The endless grassy plains (Serengeti in Maasai) are the richest grazing grounds on the continent, and therefore home to the largest herds and the highest concentrations of predators on the planet.
To focus solely on the Serengeti's Migration would be to do the Serengeti a grave injustice. Even taking the Great Migration out of the equation, it can be argued that the Serengeti is still the finest park in Africa.   Show me more >

Serengeti Holidays: the wildlife

There is such a variety of species in the Serengeti as to be too great to number here, which is why it is such an integral part of a Tanzania safari. The Serengeti's main attraction is the Great Migration, consisting of up to 2 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 thompson, impala and grant's gazelles.   Show me more >

Serengeti safaris: activities on offer

The main activity in the Serengeti is daytime game driving. No night safaris are permitted inside the National Park, but there are a number of lodges in the reserves adjacent to the Serengeti where night driving is available.   Show me more >

Serengeti safaris: the regions explained

The Serengeti National Park is absolutely huge. If you are intent on viewing the Great Migration then it is probably more critical to stay in the right region for your travel dates than to deliberate too long about the style of camp or hotel you are looking for. This park is so big that if you get the location wrong, you will not see the herds.

The Serengeti is therefore broadly divided into four distinct areas - the central Seronera Valley, the Western Corridor, the Northern Lobo and Kogatende areas, and finally the Southern Plains.

The Central Serengeti and the Seronera River Valley (good all year round)

The centre of the Serengeti is the Seronera region. Seronera is a network of river valleys that ensure year-round water supplies and keep the region incredibly rich in wildlife throughout the year.   Show me more >

Serengeti: the Western Corridor and Grumeti (May through to mid July)

The Western Corridor follows the path of the Grumeti River up towards Lake Victoria. This region provides superb wildlife action in May and June, when the migrating herds cross the crocodile-infested waters of the Grumeti.   Show me more >

Serengeti: the North, Kogatende, Lobo and Lamai (July to November)

The northern reaches of the Serengeti remain fantastically quiet and largely unvisited, due to their relative inaccessibility (a good 10 hour drive from Seronera) and lack of large hotels.   Show me more >

Serengeti: the southern Short Grass Plains of the Serengeti (December through to April)

The Serengeti's southern plains are where the name of the park comes from. Vast grass plains stretch from southern Seronera into the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Outside the migration season, this area is not as good for game as the central Seronera region or the Western Corridor, but from December through to April the migration covers the entire area.   Show me more >
