A little bit about Serengeti National Park

Chances are that you have dreamt of Africa, and when you did, you probably dreamt about the Serengeti. Countless wildlife movies have been recorded in the Serengeti, and with good reason: this is the home of the Great Migration and may very well be one of the last true natural wonders on planet earth.

Serengeti National Park is a World Heritage Site teeming with wildlife: over 2 million ungulates, 4000 lions, 1000 leopard, 550 cheetahs and some 500 bird species inhabit an area close to 15,000 square kilometers in size. Join us on a safari and explore the endless Serengeti plains dotted with trees and kopjes from which majestic lions control their kingdom; gaze upon the Great Migration in awe or find an elusive leopard in a riverine forest. Or perhaps see everything from a bird’s-eye view and soar over the plains at sunrise during a hot air balloon safari. Accommodation options come in every price range - the sound of lions roaring at night is complimentary.

  • Wonderful experience, we were right along the Kenya boarder which was an additional bonus. I loved learning about the Maasai culture and also getting to be immersed in the animal kingdom.

  • Serengeti is incredible. We went here during the rain season but were very lucky with the weather. We saw so many animals and beautiful landscapes.

  • We started seeing huge herds of zebra and wildebeest as soon as we entered the park, and finally spotted a leopard, completing the Big 5 after more than a week visiting other parks in Kenya and Tanzania.

  • The Serengeti is an incredible experience. There is no better place in the world for spotting lions. You don't even have to do anything to see them!

  • The diversity of the landscape and the sheer number of migratory animals make this region a must-see. Beware, however, of the great number of visitors during high season.

  • Had two amazing days in the Serengeti, we saw a myriad of animals including two Leopards and 7 Cheetahs. We did not set out to see the big 5 but saw 4 of them in Serengeti.
