The Serengeti is the world’s largest protected grassland and savannah ecosystem which is waiting for you to explore on a Serengeti Safari. By visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site you are assisting in contributing towards the sustainment of the country’s economy and the annual migration of the wildebeest. Endless grassy plains dotted with water holes ensures optimum wildlife sightings such as prides of lions, leopard sightings, hyenas, hartebeest, buffalo, elephants and giraffes.

Going on a daytime Serengeti safari is the most popular choice when it comes to seeing wildlife, but night time safaris hold deep secrets of the african plains. Here the predators come out to hunt and holding your breath to keep quiet while you wait for a kill is a unique experience. The bird life is also abundant and if birding may not be your favourite past time, we are sure you will appreciate the abundance of over 500 species on a Serengeti Safari.

Alan Moorehead had it right when he said: “Anyone who can go to the Serengeti, and does not, is mad.” This is a place where you let the world swallow you and you just sit back and watch herds of wildebeest sweep by you. Being amongst almost every animal you’ve ever read about in an out-of-Africa book, and with golden grasses waving all around you as you watch animals roam between flat-topped acacia trees and on distant blue hills, you would think that you have been captured in a clichéd postcard while on your Africa overland safari.

Serengeti means ‘the place where the land moves on forever’ and the land literally does move when over a million wildebeest and about 250 000 zebras migrate en masse from the Masai Mara to the south following the rains in this region, and then west for the heavier rainfall in April, May and June. Nothing can hold them back, including a barbed wire fence that was erected in the early 1960s when the government tried to stop the animals from moving into Ngorongoro. But these animals have been migrating for thousands of years, so a simple barbed wire fence was not going to stop them! This is not the only time this spectacular force of nature has been threatened. In 2011 it was proposed that a highway be built right through the Serengeti National Park, threatening to stop the migration, however, the Tanzanian government decided against it.

Why go to the Serengeti?

If you are wanting to find the best of the best game reserve to go on Safari, then the Serengeti is definitely very difficult to compete with.  The game reserve offers a year round game viewing experience with very comfortable temperatures.

The most famous aspect of the Serengeti is the yearly show of the Wildebeest Migration and calving season for their babies. The Migration generally starts in November when the herds migration from the neighbouring Masai Mara and head south into the Serengeti.  It lasts till August when the heard cross back into the Masai Mara.

Best time to go to the Serengeti?

October through to July is the best time to generally go to the Serengeti as this is normally when the wildebeest migration occurs (weather dependent).  The weather in the Serengeti is generally comfortable year round however you can experience short rains occur during Oct and November and then March and April.
