Details of Serengeti National Park

The home of the legendary Great Wildebeest Migration, the name Serengeti has become synonymous with the African safari experience. 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.

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'.

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 humble camp sites to the luxurious Four Seasons Serengeti, the sheer scope of the park means it can be explored in a single day or over the course of weeks.

Attractions

Africa's most famous safari destination is home to what many consider the greatest show on earth, the annual Wildebeest Migration that sees hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebras making their way from the calving region of Ndutu to the distant Masai Mara in southern Kenya. The opportunity to see this vast movement of animals and the high drama of a river crossing at either Grumeti River or Mara River is undoubtedly a highlight of any safari experience.


The Serengeti is home to the entirety of the Big Five, and is the best place in Tanzania to see predators such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, and more. The Simba Kopjes, famous for the large prides of lions who sun themselves on the rocks, are a popular stop in the Central Serengeti.


Early birds can hope to spot predators on the hunt with either a sunrise game drive or a sunrise hot air balloon safari.


Another highlight of the Serengeti is undoubtedly Lake Natron, famed for its volcanic terrain and the flamingos that call its waters home each year. From here, you can see the active volcano of Ol Doinyo Lengai and even launch your own climb to its summit.
