AFRICA AT ITS MOST UNTAMED WITH UNPARALLELED WILDLIFE VIEWINGWith its unparalleled opportunities for wildlife viewing and seeing Africa at its most untamed, the Serengeti National Park offers a synchrony of beauty and nature like no other place. This world-famous park is renowned for the largest wildebeest & zebra migration on the planet, which is usually triggered by rains in locations many miles away from where they are. This migratory pattern, observed by close to three million animals, is undoubtedly the biggest animal spectacle the world over. The Grumeti River harbours the biggest crocodiles in Africa and the mere sight of them is chilling! In some ponds, they do co-exist with the huge uncompromising hippos, where a clear-cut boundary is set between the two distinct groups of animals and clearly, there is much respect of each other.
The key to enjoying and maximising a safari in the Serengeti is to stay in one or two camps that are positioned in areas that have the migration around at the time you are travelling. In summary, you want to be staying in the southern plains in January to March, the central plains and the “western corridor” between April to June, the more northern plains between July & September (although the migration can cross over into Kenya as early as late July), and then the eastern or central plains between October & December. There are certain camps that do have excellent resident game year round.
