The Serengeti is the mother of all safari parks. This jewel in Tanzania’s crown is the most famous game-viewing park in Africa. Stomping ground of the 2 million strong wildebeest Great Migration and home to the highest concentration of predators in Africa, the Serengeti National Park is one of those rare places that exceeds your imagination.
The Serengeti is the Africa that we all have in our minds – endless grass plains stretching as far as the horizon, punctuated only by the odd flat-topped acacia tree. The concentration of game here is truly phenomenal. This is Big Five game viewing territory, in an authentic environment with no fences and little interruption from man – the huge herds following ancient migration routes embedded in their genes.
However, the Serengeti is far more than just a Great Migration park. There is a very good argument that, even if you took the great herds out of the Serengeti, you would still have the finest safari park in Africa. The Serengeti’s immense natural beauty has its drawbacks, with certain times of year and certain areas being honey-pots for tourist attention. However, when one part is busy, another is quiet – there is always a part of the Serengeti you can make your own.
