Many people do not know that in the Serengeti, there are more than 100 diverse varieties of dung beetle. Nearby are similarly 500+ bird types, comparable giant ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the exposed savannah, to the black eagles which make the park to be amongst the greatest and glowing acknowledged since of its ordinary of landless, diversities of flora and fauna and permitting wildlife game view all through the year.

The Serengeti considered with dissimilar landscapes: availability of large landless and flat land, animal migration all over the year, periodic river, accessibility of the completely assortment of flora and fauna, convenience of cave rock polje all that make the park so beautiful to all guests and they wish they will never say goodbye when they leave Serengeti to other National park even back to their homemade. In the national you can be able to see big 5,ask your driver guide the day before what is best. During the game drives we saw lions, cheetah, leopard, hyenas, thousands of zebras, antelopes, elephants and much more. and all types of modern lodge and campsite which cater the needs of all clients regardless of their budget.

I loved the four days I spent in the Serengeti, plus the fifth day I spent attending a wedding that overlooked the Serengeti plains. It was so interesting to hear the wildebeest as they were in rut. They were so noisy and thin, which I was told is normal for May. I would love to return during different times of the year to see how it changes.

The Serengeti is, without a shadow of a doubt, the crown jewel of Tanzania. Its vast, open plains are exactly what one pictures when they think of safaris. Central Serengeti almost always guarantees animal-spotting and who can resist seeing the wildebeest cross the Mara River in the north?
