Serengeti National Park in Tanzania

The Serengeti National Park is the most famous national park in the world and together with the game management areas that border the Reserve and the adjacent Ngorongoro Conservation area and Kenya’s Maasai Mara form one of the largest areas of protected wilderness in Africa.

Just the name Serengeti which translates as “endless plains” conjures up visions of huge herds of wildebeest roaming across the savannah and crossing treacherous rivers home to giant crocodiles waiting for an easy meal. Along the migration routes the full range of Africa’s voracious predators lie in wait. This is not just a fantasy, throughout the year the Serengeti is home to a whole range of game, both large and small and the generally open terrain makes finding such game reasonably easy.

Wildlife here includes the “big five” plus plentiful cheetah and a few wild dogs plus a whole host of other fascinating wildlife.

PLACES TO GO IN Serengeti National Park

Most guests visit the central Serengeti area around the Seronera valley where the year round game viewing is reliably good or the Southern Serengeti Plains where the migration is located for the calving season between January and March. Between July and October the remote north of the park sees the migration cross the Mara River into Kenya and is the place to be.



WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GO?

The Serengeti Reserve is fantastic year round, but this is a huge seasonal park. It is important to be in the right place to maximise your sightings. We strongly advise you discuss your itinerary with one of our expert consultants to plan for the best possible safari.

January and February are mid-summer, your days should be warm and sunny, allowing for good game viewing.  Wildebeest should be calving in southern Serengeti providing superb game viewing

June sees the end of the long rains and the bush now supports green, lush vegetation. The days should be relatively cool and clear.

The wildebeest migration heads North crossing the Mara river into Kenya usually between late July and early September.

General game viewing remains good in August as the weather is warming through September and becomes hot in October with clear blue skies.

green SEASON

April sees the start of the long rains which last through to the end of May. Low season rates apply now. The Wildebeest Migration passes through central Serengeti Heading North and into the Western corridor.

SHOULDER SEASON

November and December experience warm summer days with short spells of rain. The migration is usually now in the central Serengeti heading south.

Short rains begin in November characterised by early morning showers and sunny afternoons with good game viewing. The migration heads south from Maasai Mara

March can be cool and dry with good game viewing in the Southern Serengeti before the wildebeest migration leaves the short grass plains.
