Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is a world-renowned, vast protected area located in northern Tanzania and is considered one of Africa's most iconic safari destinations. The park covers an area of approximately 14,750 square kilometers and is known for its incredible wildlife populations, stunning landscapes, and the annual wildebeest migration, where millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other animals move across the plains in search of fresh grazing.

The best time to visit Serengeti National Park is during the dry season, which typically runs from late June to October. This period offers the best wildlife viewing opportunities, including witnessing the dramatic wildebeest migration as the herds cross the plains and tackle legendary river crossings. However, it's important to note that the park is open and accessible year-round, and wildlife viewing is still rewarding during other times of the year.

In terms of game drive areas within Serengeti National Park, there are several key regions to explore and observe the diverse wildlife. These include:

  • Seronera Valley: Located in the central Serengeti, this area is often bustling with wildlife throughout the year, making it an excellent spot for game drives. It is known for its abundance of predators, including lions, leopards, and cheetahs, as well as herbivores like elephants and giraffes.
  • Northern Serengeti: This region is particularly famous for the wildebeest migration between July and October, as the herds move from the Masai Mara in Kenya into the Serengeti. Witnessing river crossings in this area can be a thrilling experience.
  • Western Corridor: During the dry season, the western corridor attracts vast herds of wildebeest and zebras as they search for water and fresh grazing. It is also known for its large Nile crocodile population, which takes advantage of the river crossings.

These areas offer different wildlife experiences and opportunities, and the choice of where to do your game drive depends on the time of year, wildlife movements, and personal preferences. Working with an experienced tour operator or guide will help tailor your game drives to maximize your chances of encountering the wildlife you desire to see.
