SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK :

The Serengeti National Park is one of world’s greatest game parks. Meaning “endless plains” in the Maasai language, the Serengeti continues to be an ongoing source of inspiration to writers, filmmakers and photographers alike.

It is Tanzania’s oldest game reserve and is world-famous for the role it plays in the annual Great Migration, when an estimated two million herbivores - mostly wildebeest - migrate from the Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Hundreds of thousands of animals die along the way and the drama of this epic seasonal journey is a gripping, deeply moving experience and a wonderful photographic subject. 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Unforgettable hot air balloon safaris over the vast Serengeti plains
  • Olduvai Gorge, where groundbreaking archaeological discoveries were made
  • The magnificent Ngorongoro Crater lies within the Serengeti region
  • Two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves
  • One of the world’s oldest ecosystems
  • Fantastic birdwatching
  • Known for its vast grassy plains, dotted with beautiful acacia trees

Distances and location:
There are three main ways of reaching the Serengeti by car; through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and entering the Serengeti from the south, from Lake Victoria into the Grumeti area or from entering the Lobo area to the east. Due to its size it is difficult to give accurate estimates of distances, but as a rough estimation the drive from Arusha to the Serengeti Seronera area is about 10 hours. Another way to enter the Serengeti is by plane and there are many scheduled flights to various airstrips in the park.


Excursion options:
A. Take a balloon flight over the Serengeti plains.
B. Multiple day walks outside the national park, but within the Serengeti Conservation Area.
C. Sundowners at special locations.
