Serengeti Safari

Serengeti National Park: Serengeti Safari Tours, Great Migration Packages, Safari Lodges, and When to Go

Serengeti National Park is one of Africa’s most iconic safari destinations. Located in the north of Tanzania, these far-reaching plains are home to huge concentrations of wildlife: grazers like elephants, wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, and much more, as well as exciting predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, and crocodiles.

The Serengeti is most famous for the Great Migration—the greatest natural spectacle to be found anywhere in the world. Each year, thousands upon thousands of wildebeest, zebras, and more thunder across Serengeti National Park chasing the seasonal rains. Witnessing a Serengeti migration tops many of our clients’ bucket lists! Luxurious mobile safari camps change location throughout the year to follow the Great Migration and find the best position for wildlife viewing.

However, the safari action doesn’t stop when the Great Migration leaves. The Serengeti is a year-round destination; in fact, you’re likely to see a larger variety of wildlife when the wildebeest have finished passing through.

Serengeti National Park is part of Tanzania’s popular “northern circuit,” which includes other highlights such as the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire National Park. The Serengeti also combines well with Kenya; less-visited safari parks such as Ruaha, Selous, Mahale, and Katavi; and beautiful beaches in the Seychelles and Zanzibar.

Best Time for a Serengeti Safari and Great Migration

Serengeti National Park is an extremely seasonal safari destination. The best time to go depends on what you most want to see. The cost for Serengeti safari lodges is at a premium during the peak months of June to October.

June to October: Peak season for the Serengeti migration

November to December: Good general wildlife viewing

January to February: Wildebeest calving season and thrilling predator action

March to May: Rainy season, wildlife more difficult to spot; prices are lower at this time
