What to See and Do
Is there a safari destination more evocative, more spell-binding than the Serengeti? This classic African savannah is home to the world's greatest concentration of wildlife, much of it intrinsically linked to that most dramatic of all natural phenomena: the migration of over a million wildebeest, zebra and antelope.
A household name it may be but don't think that that's a bad thing: a Serengeti safari has many advantages over other African wildlife destinations.
To begin with, its sheer size means you can easily get away from the crowds while enjoying some of Africa's best game viewing - and you don't even have to time your Serengeti safari with the migration: wildlife in the Serengeti is abundant all year round. If it is the migration that you're after however, then have a look at our migration feature to familiarise yourself with the seasonal rhythms of this extraordinary event.
Then there's the excellent accommodation in the Serengeti - expect opulent colonial-style lodges or luxury tented camps that will take your breath away such is their attention to location, service and furnishings.
And finally, a Serengeti safari combines well with other classic destinations both in Tanzania and further afield; why not explore nearby Ngorongoro Crater or add on a luxury tropical beach holiday after your safari? It's simple to do - have a look at our range of Serengeti tours or just tell us what you want to experience and leave the organisation to us.
Serengeti safari - the real thing.
Located in north-west Tanzania, the Serengeti is the 7th world wonder and most famous for its annual wildebeest migration and the resulting spectacle of predator versus prey. The best time of year to follow the wildebeest migration is between December and July and to see predators between June and October. Please keep in mind the route and timing of the migration is very unpredictable, so I recommend staying at least three nights to make sure you get the best game viewing experience.
