Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world. With more than two million wildebeest, half a million Thomson’s gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra, the park remains a resting place for the “big 5 and surely one of the greatest concentrations of plains game in Africa. The Serengeti is most famous for its animal migration to the Masai Mara – over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras migrate south from the northern hills to the southern plains every September – November.
The seemingly unending savannah plains of the park are home to Africa’s most famous animals as well as a cast of lesser known but no less interesting animals.
Serengeti National Park is most famous for the Great Migration that sees more than 2 million animals migrating north into the Masai Mara before returning to the Ngorongoro region, the park is no less fascinating at any other time of the year. It is the best place in East Africa to spot lions and leopards in the wild, and is home to the entirety of the ‘Big Five’.
Serengeti National Park is home to more than 9000 hyena, almost 3000 lions, and more than a thousand leopards, the park is a great place to see predators going about their grisly but essential business.
Perhaps most startling about the park is just how ever present the animals are. Your entire drive will be accompanied by game-viewing, meaning there’s never a dull moment.
It is important to appreciate the sheer size of the Serengeti when planning to visit the park, as it is often divided into North, South, East, West, and Central. Each region offers a different game drive experience as well as different accommodation options, and the Great Migration passes through some regions more than others.
Serviced by everything from basic budget camp sites to the luxurious lodges and tended camps in Serengeti, the sheer scope of the park means it can be explored in a single day or over the course of weeks.
