A Serengeti Safari is one of Africa’s pure untamed wildlife experiences. Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and amazing array of wildlife. Known by the Maasai people as “siringit—the place where the land moves on forever”. The Serengeti is known around the world for the great Wildebeest Migration, renowned as the greatest wildlife show on earth. The Serengeti has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa with wildebeest, antelope, buffalo and zebra regularly sighted on the open plains of the Serengeti and lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena are also ever present patrollers of the open savannah.
Wildlife is found in the Serengeti throughout the year with the Southern Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation area experiencing the peak of the migratory herds from January through to April, this is prime time for a Serengeti Safari in these areas. It should be noted that April and May are not the best months for a Tanzania Safari as these are the rainy months and the roads become an absolute nightmare to drive on. A lot of the Safari camps in the Serengeti close down over this period.
The central Serengeti, Seronera area is a fantastic place to see the predators, especially the huge Lion prides and the area explodes with activity around early June when the migration makes its way onto the fresh grasslands. A Serengeti Safari is excellent in the Seronera area at this time. The Western Corridor (Western Serengeti) is a more exclusive safari area and a prime location for the migration from mid June to July, before they head North East for the Mara River and the Masai Mara.
The Serengeti is such a massive game reserve that it is possible to escape the loads of tourists that frequent certain parts of the parks.

The great Wildebeest Migration is estimated to include over a million wildebeest and around 200,000 zebra, however, when witnessing this magical event there do seem to be far greater numbers. These great herds are engaged in a never ending journey through diverse landscapes, so strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, pride of lion or crocodile infested river can hold them back.
