Serengeti National Park

Description

This is Africa most famous game reserve. Covering an area of about 15.000 square kilometers, making it larger than lots of countries, it is famous for the large predator population and for being the arena for the greatest spectacles on Earth: The great Migration. 
The landscapes are mainly open grasses, patches of acacia woodland and riparian woodland around Grumeti river in the western corridor. In fact, the word Serengeti means Endless Plains in the Masai language, and you will understand why when you experience this magical place. 
As you can see in the above map of the great migration, between December and May, the best area of the Serengeti to catch the great Migration is the Seronera region in center Serengeti. Between June and August our attentions should focus in the Grumeti Area. After that, the herds start moving north towards Kenya and return to the Seronera region in December.


Wildlife

The most abundant wildlife in Africa. Millions and millions of antelopes, wildebeest, zebras, etc support a giant big predator population. 
You will be able to see large predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, golden and black backed jackals, bat eared foxes and spotted hyenas. Nocturnal predators include Civet, Serval or the Genet and African wild cat. But many other mammals can be found like the rhino, elephant, hippo, waterbuck, bushbuck, eland, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, warthog, baboon, impala, thomson's gazelle, etc.


When to go

Serengeti is the wildlife gaming reserve of excellence in Africa throughout the whole year. It is so large that, according to the time of the year, there are areas that are more interesting than others. For example, if you visit the Serengeti between November and May, then the Seronera plains provide the best views of large wildlife concentration. However, between May and July, the Grumeti area in the western corridor offers great views of the migration. From August to October, the lobo area is worth visiting as the migration herds would be passing by.
