Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest, largest and most popular national park carries the meaning of an endless plain as named by indigenous Maasai. The uniqueness of this plain among others is the natural international migration of nearly 3 millions wildebeests each year to and from Maasai Mara National Park in Kenya. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa where by the big five animals such as Buffalos, Elephants, Rhinos, Leopards and Lions are among the entertainment features in the park
With the Serengeti only 335 km (208 miles) from Arusha it is still a very long drive due to the roads. If you are driving to the Serengeti National Park it is recommended to stop off on the way. We would like to point out that if you are interested in visiting the Ngorongoro Crater on the way, it is best to get to the rim the afternoon before and then spend the whole next day in the Crater.
Best time to visit
Following the Wildebeest migration from Serengeti National Park to Maasai Mara National Reserve, the best time is December to July and to see the predators the best time is June to October.
Recommended number of days
Due to the amount to be seen in the reserve it’s recommendable to have three or four day’s safari. If you are interested in photography, the longer you stay the better chances you have to get the ultimate photos
