Introducing Serengeti

Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s most iconic safari destination. Together with the nearby Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park, these areas form the nation’s spectacular northern region. The Serengeti is particularly well-known for its incredible sightings of the Great Migration, the annual wildebeest migration of more than 1.5 million mammals as they search for greener pastures. Like clockwork, the months of October through to July are the best time to come to Serengeti National Park, before the wildebeest, zebra and impala return to Kenya’s Masai Mara around August.
