Serengeti

Tanzania

Overview

Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for the most famous of all African parks: Serengeti.

Its wide, open grasslands see the migration of around two million wildebeest each year. Their movements are difficult to predict but, as a rule of thumb, the best time to to see them in the south is between November and March. You’re more likely to spot them heading north from April to July.

Visit outside migration time and you’re still in for a treat: the resident wildlife here is second to none.

How

We recommend flying into Kilimanjaro, then onwards by light aircraft from Arusha into the Serengeti. A great local network of flights connects the Serengeti with Zanzibar, Selous, Tanzania's western parks or even Rwanda.

When

The Serengeti is a year round destination, with a long dry season from June to October. The Great Wildebeest Migration varies from year to year - May, June and July the wildebeest are generally in the Serengeti heading north through the western corridor, over the Grumeti River and into the far north-west of the national park. The wildebeest herds generally calve in the southern Serengeti from late January to February.
