Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is one of the most renowned wildlife park and is known for its massive annual migration of wildebeest and zebra. The herds migrate throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh grazing grounds and depend upon the rainfall patterns each year.

The Serengeti National Park is located north west of Tanzania and is approximately 14,763 sq. km in size. It derives its name from the Maasai word “Siringet” which means ‘a vast land that runs forever, where endless plains meet the sky’.

The endless grassy plains are the richest grazing grounds on the continent, and therefore home to the largest herds and the highest concentrations of predators on the planet. The Serengeti guarantees an exceptional safari experience.

The park is absolutely huge

The park is absolutely huge and is therefore broadly divided into four distinct areas. The Central Seronera Valley and Southern plains are the classic savannah, dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife. While the Western Corridor is marked by the Grumeti River and has more forest with dense bush. The Northern area of Lobo and Kogatende meet up with Kenya’s Maasai Mara reserve and are the least visited section of the park.

The wildlife viewing in Serengeti National park is good throughout the year, but certain areas are better at specific times. The dry season from late June to October offers the best wildlife viewing. The best chance of seeing the wildebeest migration is during June and July, however the timing of the migration varies every year. The time to see the wildebeest calving is from late January to February.
