Serengeti National Park

Book or inquire now

The Serengeti, no name is more evocative of the wildlife spectacle of Africa. It is a familiar place to visitors around the World through many nature documentaries. It is one of those rare safari destinations which often exceeds visitors’ expectations. By far the number one destination for safaris in Tanzania. The Serengeti has been declared a World Heritage Site due to the abundance of wildlife found there. The landscape is quite varied with seemingly endless plains dotted with rocky outcrops called kopjes.

 

The Serengeti Nation Park is known for the Great Migration as well as its excellent sightings of predators, including Lions, Cheetahs and Leopards. It is also home to Elephants, Buffalo, Giraffes, Baboons, Crocodiles and many species of primates. The Serengeti is one of the best places to enjoy a safari vacation, unlike any other. It is home to all the Big Five as well as some of the best safari camps in Africa.

 

Access: How to get to Serengeti National Park

The most convenient option is to fly from Arusha to one of the park’s seven airstrips. It is possible to book an overland safari, in a 4×4 safari vehicle, from Arusha to the Serengeti National Park. Most visitors will fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) between Arusha and Moshi. The airport is about 200 miles or a 6-hour drive from the airport to the southern region.

 

If guests book a fly-in safari, they will catch a small regional flight from Kilimanjaro International, Arusha Airport or Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to one of the airstrips within the Serengeti. Depending on where guests are flying from this can take between 1 – 5 hours. Upon landing, guests will be met by a vehicle from the lodge and the road transfer can take between 45 min to 2 hours to reach camp.

 

The Great Migration

The greatest attraction on an African safari in the Serengeti is witnessing often called the greatest wildlife spectacle in Earth. It is a common misconception that the Migration is always happening in the Serengeti. It is the annual movement of over two million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebra seek better grazing areas. The herds move south in the Serengeti before moving into the Masai Mara in Kenya before returning to the northern Serengeti. The herds must cross the Grumeti and Mara Rivers which are home to some of the largest crocodiles in Africa. They do this between July and October and these river crossings offer moments of high drama as life and death hang in the balance. A wonderful time of year to be in the Serengeti is in February. This is the calving season when hundreds of thousands of calves are born on the Ndutu Plains.
