Vast. Expensive. Amazing.

Written on: May 28, 2013   |   I visited in March 2009 We had a great experience in the Serengeti, though I'm still a bit miffed by their exorbitant prices compared with the rest of...you know...THE WORLD.
This is a bit of a difficult place to do a self-drive (I don't think they like it due to lost tour/guide money - understandable), but it CAN be done.
We drove through Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, and it was silly. Some things are too surreal to use a standard adjective, so I'm going with silly. I watched a cheetah "mark" a tree from ten feet away. Yikes. A pride of lions lounged just a few meters from the road and couldn't care less about our faces pressed flat against the Subaru's window.
The space is what separates the Serengeti from the pack.
There's a sparse, lonely feeling that defines a part of Africa here. It's wonderful in a way that catches you off guard. Enjoy.

I was shocked to see just how many animals in Serengeti National Park. I knew there would be a lot but that was an understatement. Every animal here in Serengeti & Ngorongoro is trying to eat, drink, and survive to see another days. Some do better than others like. The lions, cheetahs, and leopards are definitely doing their part. The hyenas pick up the scraps with... read more

Thrilling experience of 2 nights at the wonderful and comfortable Kati Kati tented camp, where we've had dinner and surrounded by hyenas and lions, with herds of elephants that roamed around at night to our tents to drink water cisterns, which will more for those who appreciate the adrenaline experience?
The standard of the lodge category very comfortable and very... read more

My previous visit to The Serengeti was back in the last century … man had I forgotten how amazing a place it is.

Though only eight nights split between two camps, south and east respectively, within the park – it was enough to rekindle the sense of wonder that I recall from nearly twenty years ago. The deal I took advantage of allowed me to visit two camps for ... read more

This is the best park for Tanzania safari! Leopards, cheetahs, rhinos, elephants, lions, giraffes, hyenas, buffalo, etc. It doesn't get any better!

My first time to Africa (Kenya/Tanzania) was an amazing experience. Because of the careful thorough planning of Maasai Wanderings to every detail, everything went smoothly from start to finish. Each camp was luxurious, (Kaskaz, Naona Maru, Plantation Lodge and Nimali). The food scrumptious! The service and ALL the staff at each camp were pleasant, helpful and an ab... read more

It is such a nice place to visit all year round. The only place to witness the annual wildebeest migration in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet. Sometimes it is being referred to as the ‘Greatest Show on Earth', the Great Wildebeest Migration is a movement of approximately 2 million wildebeest throughout t... read more

I've been in safari for almost five times but I see the Serengeti as marvelous and magic destination in the world for wildlife and game drives. When you're in Serengeti, you will see all animals. Between July to August last year we had been in Northern Serengeti where the migration was, and we saw wildebeest, zebra, topi, Hartebeest, eland, antelope, hyena, varieti... read more

Probably one of our favorite destinations in Africa. In one word, perfection! The entire Serengeti experience blew us away and always does, from start to finish. Everything from the landing strip when we arrived to amazing wildlife we were able to see.

If you are able, make sure you visit the Serengeti during The Great Migration. This is a natural world wonder t... read more

We really had a wonderful safari to Serengeti. We enjoyed all the incredible animals, getting to see the big five plus numerous others. Everything, including the wonderful Serena hotels & Sopa Lodges and knowledgeable drivers with excellent driving skills, met our expectations. read more

Bring a good set of binoculars or a spotting scope even. That 8X crap is no good here.
