Overview

Serengeti National Park, known as the never-ending plain which is home to the highest concentration of untamed life and the liveliest spot of Tanzania is attracting millions of wildlife lovers to Tanzania. The unique hot air balloon safari, view of golden sun-set in the rolling savannahs, the large herds of mammals and the world-famous wildebeest migration make the place one of the iconic national parks of the country.

The geology of the national park changes in every step, from savannah to backwoods, from swamps to kopjes, and from slopes to waterways, the national park offers quite a diverse landscape to its visitors. No matter what you are excited for, meeting with the “Big Five” or spotting the unique rarest black rhinos the park offers you everything you have ever imagined about true African safari animals. Besides the enormous cats, numerous different predators can be spotted including spotted hyena (particularly in the first part of the day), jackal and bat-eared fox. It is obviously most acclaimed for its yearly wildebeest relocation when over a million creatures move between the Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara. In any case, it is in the Serengeti that the absolute most energizing parts of the migration play out: the birthing season (when up to 400 000 calves are conceived) or the migration river-crossings when the wildebeest herds run the gauntlet of colossal crocodiles as they come back to the Masai Mara. Be that as it may, you don’t need to make a travel to this exceptional Tanzania Destinations during the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration season to appreciate excellent game viewing. Untamed life is productive consistently and the park has universal notoriety for predators – big cats, hyenas, birds of prey and wild dogs.
