About a Serengeti safari.
Spanning an area of 30,000 square kilometres in northern Tanzania, the Serengeti is quintessential Africa. Expect acacia plains that roll to the horizon, china-blue skies, seas of waving grass, and exceptional densities of wildlife.
The annual Great Migration with millions of wildebeest thunders across the savanna, followed by hungry predators picking off the weak and young. It’s not hard to see why the Serengeti is one of the most popular parks on the continent. But not to worry, we know exactly where to go to beat the infamous crowds.
The Serengeti is the stuff bucket-list dreams are made of. Where else can you see all the mighty members of the Big Five, witness the Great Migration, hot air balloon across the plains and try a walking safari?
Off the beaten track.
Even if your heart is set on seeing the Great Migration, combine a few days wildebeest-watching with a visit to another area to see the real magic of the Serengeti. The big cats in the eastern Serengeti or hot air ballooning in the Grumeti Private Reserve in the west might just be enough to tempt you...
Why Serengeti will blow your mind away?
The river crossings of the Great Migration continue to be extremely popular, attracting enormous numbers of people. We’ll help you find the most exclusive camps and the best guides, but be prepared to share your space with a few other safari-goers.
By May, the rains have usually cleared in the Serengeti and the Great Migration is heading North through the central Seronera and Western Corridor regions. There is a buzz in the air as the rutting season (breeding season) kicks-off. Witness testosterone-fuelled fights between the bulls, rams and stallions competing for the attentions of their opposite sex. Wildlife enjoys its peak condition in a beautiful green environment. However, cloud cover has been known to affect photographic conditions.
