The Serengeti

The Serengeti: One of the world's wildlife wonders!

No visit to Tanzania would be complete without an excursion to the famed Serengeti National Park. It is from here that massive concentrations of wildebeest, zebras and other animals commence the annual Great Migration in search of pastures new, providing one of the greatest natural spectacles to be found anywhere in the world.

The Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park. Its name means 'endless plain' in the Masai language. Paying a visit you can watch golden-maned lions stalking the migrating herds, spot leopards at rest in trees at dusk and take a hot-air balloon tour at dawn as the sun’s golden rays illuminate the land.

These normally arid plains take on a whole new aspect after the annual rains, at which time they are transformed into a vast rolling carpet of green which stretches away towards every horizon.

Animal life in the Serengeti is always on the move, which is why some of the camps are mobile, moving to follow the concentrations of game as their numbers ebb and flow over the seasons.

The Serengeti ecosystem is, in fact, a continuation of Kenya's Masai Mara - the migrating animals are not concerned what we humans call each country! The park also borders the Norongoro Conservation Area to the southeast and the so-called 'western corridor', along which the animals migrate comes withing 8 kilometres of Lake Victoria.

Pay a visit to the jewel in Tanzania’s crown – you won’t regret it!
