The serene and vast plains of the Serengeti

Written on: April 14, 2013   |   I visited in April 2013 Having been on several safaris I would say when it comes to choosing an idyllic safari location the Serengeti is the park of all parks. When I first arrived here I could not get over how vast this place is. It makes me happy that there are still some places left for animals to roam freely in an abundance of nature.

Whether you're into bird watching, you want to witness the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, or you want to be almost guaranteed to see the Big Five in their natural habitat, the Serengeti offers it all. Be sure to give yourself enough time, and research which area of the Serengeti to go to depending on the time of year you plan to visit - the animals move year round. I recommend a minimum of ten days if possible. I personally prefer to be close to the migration simply because that's where you're most likely to find the big predators, and the migration itself is a must see.

You will see a diversity of habitats within the Serengeti. This includes rivers such as the Grumeti - teeming with enormous crocodiles; kopjes - popular habitats for lion prides; swamps; grasslands and woodlands.

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

A guide will make a big difference to your safari experience, so go with a recommendation or reputable company. Take a good camera. Try tented accommodation if you want an unforgettable experience, which offers the whooping of the hyena by night and awakening to singing birds.
