Serengeti National Park

This is one of the world's most famous parks and guarantees an unforgettable safari. The Serengeti is renowned for its incredible concentrations of predators and for the largest animal migration on earth which sees over two million wildebeest and half a million zebras animals following the rains to greener pastures.Its endless grassy plains are the richest grazing grounds on the continent and home to the largest herds and highest concentrations of predators in the world.

At a glance:

- Climate, flora and fauna that has remained unchanged in over one million years.  

- The Great Serengeti Migration: Some two million wildebeest and half a million zebras, along with hundreds of thousands of Thompson’s gazelles, impala, Grant’s gazelle, topi, hartebeest and eland traveling through a number of parks, reserves and protected areas in search of fresh grass. So strong is their instinct to migrate that nothing can hold them back. This epic, seasonal journey is a deeply moving experience and a wonderful subject for photography enthusiasts

June to October (dry season)

+ The wildebeest migration is most likely to be seen during June and July in the western corridor and August to September in the north of the park

+ Greater chance of spotting wildlife in the shorter grass and around waterholes and rivers

+ Mainly sunny with next to no rain

+ Fewer mosquitoes result in lower risk of malaria

- The Seronera area is very popular during this period and can be crowded

- It can get very cold overnight, ensure you pack warm clothing

November to May (wet season)

+ Late January to February is the calving season in the Serengeti - an excellent time to see predators in action

+ Luscious green landscapes

+ April and May is low season, the region is much quieter during this period

+ Whilst wildlife is easier to spot during the dry season, the Serengeti offers good wildlife all year round

+ Excellent for bird-watchers with the presence of migratory birds in the region

+ The rains from November through to February are mostly short afternoon storms and are unlikely to disrupt your trip

- Peak wet season is March to May with heavy downpours frequent
