Home to the great migration
Serengeti, in fact, is the Maasai word that means “endless plain.” The vast expanse of the Serengeti, where the wildlife sightings are typically at their peak in the early mornings and late afternoons, when the temperature cools, is amazing. The Serengeti is teeming with wildlife: over 2 million ungulates, 4000 lions, 1000 leopard, 550 cheetahs and some 500 bird species inhabit an area close to 15,000 square kilometers in size. The multitude and diversity of wildlife species in this huge protected area are unrivaled anywhere on the planet.
Morning game drives are highly recommended especially in Serengeti. Animals are very active in the morning and so you will likely see and experience a lot between 6:30-8 am. In the morning, the bush is very quiet and the sun is rising…even without animals, it is just amazingly beautiful to be out there! Join us on a safari and explore the endless Serengeti plains dotted with trees and kopjes from which majestic lions control their kingdom; gaze upon the Great Migration in awe or find an elusive leopard in a riverine forest. Or perhaps see everything from a bird’s-eye view and soar over the plains at sunrise during a hot air balloon safari. Accommodation options come in every price range – the sound of lions roaring at night is complimentary.
