Serengeti National Park Overview


The Serengeti is perhaps the most famous national park in Africa, where an abundance of wildlife and a huge area make it one of the most popular parks to visit. The park covers over 15,000 square kilometres, encompassing a number of individual reserves and conservation areas. Serengeti National Park holidays are part of Tanzania’s northern safari circuit, and a trip here is easily combined with other national parks.

The vast and diverse landscape must be seen to be believed, whether that’s from a light aircraft flight over the plains or rumbling along rough dirt roads in a four-wheel drive vehicle. The grassy, verdant savannah meets the horizon in a shimmer of heat haze, its open vista dotted with hardy antelope such as eland, Thomson’s gazelle and topi. Within the dense acacia forest, thick tree cover provides shelter to predatory big cats, such as cheetah and lion. Serengeti National Park holidays can also visit the wide rivers of the park, where hippos and crocodiles co-exist in begrudging harmony.


When to visit Serengeti National Park 


Most of the Serengeti’s wildlife resides in permanent areas, which means holidays to Serengeti National Park offer excellent safari drives all year round. However, during the dry season the Great Migration takes place, as millions of zebra and wildebeest begin the annual journey into Kenya in search of lush pastures. The migration is known as the ‘greatest wildlife show on Earth’ for good reason; the migrating herds gather in lines that reach up to 40 kilometres long, plunging in and out of rivers and galloping across plains with the pursuit by predators and exhaustion adding to the already perilous journey. December to July is the best time to visit for a chance to see the migration in full flow, with the earlier half of the year the best time to view baby wildebeest in the southern Serengeti. The latter part of the year – September to November – is the dry season, when wildlife viewing is at its peak in Tarangire National Park. During this time the migration herds are in Kenya’s Masai Mara.
