Serengeti National Park

See the Big 5 and explore Tanzania's most famous park

Overview of Serengeti National Park

The sprawling plains of the Serengeti National Park protects the highest concentration of large mammals on Earth, including 2,500 lions. Covering 14,763 square kilometres across the north of Tanzania, the varied landscape offers spectacular contrasts, including open grassy plains, hills, rocky terrain, acacias, savannah woodlands, riverine forests, and a spattering of swamps and lakes. The park is connected to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in its south-western corner and Masai Mara Reserve across the border in Kenya. The major drawcard of the Serengeti is nature’s greatest spectacle, the great migration, where millions of wildebeest and zebra roam the plains in massive herds.

Best time to visit Serengeti National Park

This Serengeti offers a fantastic year-round safari experience. In December to March the herds can be found mainly in the Serengeti’s Southern Plains. In February/March 400,000 wildebeest calves are born and predators are at their highest number. In April the herds head south, following a clockwise route through Southern Serengeti grass plains to late May when they reach Serengeti Central. They continue on to the Western Corridor in July/ August and finally head north towards Masai Mara National Reserve in around August/September.

"Our guide, Sal, was amazing and the range of places we visited was well-selected. By the end of the tour, our group felt like a small family. Tucan Travel was an awesome way to see Peru on limited time."
