Serengeti National Park

Without a doubt the Serengeti is hands down the greatest Game Park in Africa…… With a space covering 14,763 square KM, this place is truly spectacular in every sense, a place that you will hold in your heart forever. We suggest you include this in your safari itinerary for sure.


The most popular National Park in Tanzania, A well as a World Heritage site and home to one of the Natural Wonders of the World… the Annual Wildlife Migration. Taking place every June-July, over 6 million hooves pound the open plains as more than 200,000 Zebra and 300,000 Thompson Gazelle join the Wildebeest's epic journey to find greener pastures and fresh water. One of the most breathtaking events taking place within the animal kingdom.


Declared a protected area in 1921 and gazetted as a National Park in 1951, the Serengeti is the oldest National Park in Tanzania and without a doubt one of the most famous wildlife sanctuaries in the world.

The Serengeti is characterised by short and long grass plains as well as acacia savanna in the central areas. In addition, you can see lakes, hills and the rock outcrops called Kopjes. Accurately named ‘endless plains’ by the Maasai People, you immediately experience this the second you enter the southern plains of the Serengeti via the outstanding Ngorongoro Conservation Area.


The Serengeti provides sanctuary to the highest concentration of plains game in the world and resident here are Lions, Buffaloes, Impalas, Hippos, Waterbuck, Elephants, Cheetahs and the Leopard, as well as many more. Survey estimates indicate a population of over 4 million animals within the Serengeti, including 3,000 Lions, 500,000 Zebras, and 8,000 Elephants.


The incredible wildlife spectacle of the Serengeti teamed with the glow of the golden sunset blanketing over the bronzed and sunburnt Savanna at the end of the earth is something of wilderness dreams.
