Embark on an extraordinary adventure through the heart of Africa and immerse yourself in the wonders of the Serengeti.

Renowned for its vast landscapes, rich wildlife, and captivating experiences, this iconic East Africa destination guarantees an unforgettable African safari when you choose your Serengeti travel package. Join us as we uncover the mysteries of the Serengeti! 

What is the most beautiful part of the Serengeti? 

The beauty of the Serengeti National Park lies in its untamed vastness, but if we had to pick a crown jewel, it would be the Serengeti Mara. This region, bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, boasts a picturesque landscape that seamlessly blends with the endless plains of the Serengeti. The iconic acacia-dotted savannah, the sprawling grasslands, and the winding rivers create a breathtaking panorama that is sure to leave you in awe. 

What is Serengeti best known for? 

The Serengeti is renowned for its spectacular annual Great migration – a natural phenomenon that is nothing short of a wildlife extravaganza. Witness 1.5 million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and other herbivores embark on a journey across the plains in search of greener pastures. It’s a sight that defines the very essence of the African safari experience, making the Serengeti a must-visit for wildlife enthusiasts. 

How many days are enough for a Serengeti safari? 

While the Serengeti has an endless array of wonders to offer, a minimum of four to five days is recommended to fully immerse yourself in the magic. This allows you to explore different regions, witness the various stages of the Great Migration, and indulge in the unique experiences the Serengeti has to offer, such as hot air ballooning over the vast plains. 

Attractions in Serengeti National Park 

The Serengeti National Park is a treasure trove of attractions, each more captivating than the last. From the iconic Big Five – lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino – to the elusive cheetah and the playful antics of the mischievous meerkats, the park is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Engage in hot air ballooning over the Serengeti for a bird’s eye view of the animal kingdom below, an experience that will etch itself into your memory forever. 

Best month to visit the Serengeti 

Timing is crucial when planning your Serengeti adventure, and the best time to visit is during the Great Migration. The months of June to October offer prime viewing opportunities as the herds cross the Grumeti River and the Mara River, facing off against hungry crocodiles. Witnessing this raw display of nature’s power is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that shouldn’t be missed. However, the Serengeti is a superb all-year round wildlife destination, whether you’re watching the herds birth and migrate in the southern regions between December and March, or enjoying thrilling big cat sightings in the Grumeti Reserves at any time of the year. 

How do you get to the Serengeti? 

Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), situated between the towns of Moshi and Arusha, serves as the recommended point of entry. It lies approximately 200 miles (320 kilometers) from the park’s southern entrance. Airlines like KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Kenya Airways, and Ethiopian Airlines offer international flights to JRO. From here you will have a short transfer to your safari lodgings by means of a quick transfer flight or drive. 

Masai Mara or Serengeti – Which Safari is Better? 

The eternal debate – a Masai Mara safari package or a Serengeti safari package? Both are exceptional, but the Serengeti steals the spotlight with its sheer size and diverse landscapes. The Serengeti offers a more extensive safari experience, providing a variety of ecosystems to explore. Whether it’s the endless plains, rocky outcrops, or riverine habitats, the Serengeti presents a rich tapestry of African wildlife that is unparalleled.  

We highly recommend extending your Serengeti safari to include a few days in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which borders the region; time in the Ngorongoro Crater or further afield in Tarangire National Park is highly rewarding. After your safari, why not head over to Zanzibar for some relaxed beach time? 

If you’re still undecided about a trip to the Serengeti, here are a few interesting facts every explorer should know:  

  • Ancient Ecosystem: The Serengeti is one of the oldest ecosystems on Earth, dating back over a million years. 
  • Geological Marvels: The region features unique geological formations, including the Gol Mountains and the active Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano. 
  • Rock Art Treasures: Numerous ancient rock art sites scatter the Serengeti, offering insights into past cultures. 
  • Evolutionary Significance: The Serengeti, particularly areas like Olduvai Gorge, has played a crucial role in understanding human evolution. 
  • Avian Diversity: With over 500 bird species, the Serengeti is a paradise for birdwatchers, boasting migratory birds from around the world alongside resident species.
