Spectacular Serengeti Safari

Thanks to the famous wildebeest migration, there’s enough drama in Tanzania’s flagship reserve to enjoy a Serengeti safari as a stand-alone holiday. But with the Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara in close proximity, the Serengeti fits very easily into a classic ‘northern circuit’. You’ll be assured of a wide diversity of safari experiences and can take advantage of tried-and-tested travel logistics.

Travel further afield in Tanzania and your Serengeti safari combines with some of the most exciting wildlife experiences in East Africa: chimp tracking in the Mahale Mountains, exploring the vast Selous Reserve, or snorkelling off a coral reef in Zanzibar.

When planning your Serengeti safari, remember that the wildebeest migration is a seasonal affair and moves through the Serengeti as well as Kenya’s Masai Mara. Talk to us about booking a Serengeti safari to coincide with the migration or browse our Serengeti and Masai Mara combination safaris. Alternatively, simply contact us and we’ll create a Serengeti safari based on your needs and budget.

What To Do

Activities to Look Forward to

1. Watch the Migration

Migration highlights in the Serengeti include the calving months & the crocodile-dodging river crossings but with a million animals on the march, there is tooth-&-claw drama throughout the season.

2. Fly High

It’s a pre-dawn start but worth it; few sights rival that of sunrise over the Serengeti, especially when the savannah is covered in wildebeest. A champagne breakfast is served after touchdown.

3. Meet the Maasai

The red-robed Maasai people & their cattle share the savannah with its wildlife. A Serengeti safari gives you the opportunity to visit a local village where you may see the famous Maasai ‘jumping dance’.

4. Head for the River

Between June & August, the wildebeest cross the crocodile-filled Grumeti & Mara Rivers as they return to the Masai Mara. It’s the migration’s most dramatic chapter so book early for front row seats.

5. Track Predators

The Serengeti’s density of game means lions & cheetahs are commonly seen plus leopards, spotted hyenas & occasionally African wild dogs. The Serengeti’s rivers hide some of the biggest crocodiles in Africa.

6. Go Private

The Serengeti is popular during migration season; we recommend staying at a privately-run concession. You’ll have access to the park as well as exclusive game drives, night drives & walks on the concession.

7. Bring the Family

With its generous climate & lodges that welcome children from toddlers to teenagers, the Serengeti makes a great family safari with tailored safari programmes, child minders & private accommodation.

8. Take a Table for Two

Intimate, exclusive & with idyllic settings, many Serengeti lodges are among the top choices in East Africa for honeymooners & celebrating couples – ask us about the best ones.
