The Serengeti National Park is a jewel in the crown of African national parks. Located in north western Tanzania, bordering Kenya, this World Heritage site is also one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World. The Park is a vast expanse of almost 15 000 square km’s, boasting riverine forest, grassland and savannah plains.
The Masai lion, African Leopard, African Bush Elephant, East Black Rhino and African Buffalo make up the Big Five which are ever-present in the Serengeti. Other animal and bird species are quite prolific and too many to highlight. An overland wildlife safari is the main reason for visitors to explore this amazing region and predators are best viewed between June and October.
Best experienced during July through to October, the annual wildebeest migration is a sight to behold – particularly from the air.
