Take a tailored tour of the Serengeti
Vast landscapes and prolific game: that’s why for many the Serengeti is the most magnificent park in all of Africa. Your Serengeti holiday offers you the opportunity to see a spectacular amount of wild animals, and your expert guides will be by your side as you make your tour of the Serengeti to make sure you do just that. The park’s lion, giraffe, warthog and reedbuck are joined every year by a staggering 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra. You can head over to the Grumeti River to spot some of the biggest Nile crocodile in the world, and sights like this will give you plenty to talk about as you dine on the freshly prepared food the team back at your deluxe base camp have prepared for you.
The Serengeti takes its name from the Maasai word meaning ‘endless plain’, yet no matter how large the plains are they quickly become packed with what can only be described as swarms of animals as the dry season kicks in. This makes the best times to take your Serengeti tour as the rains stop in January and February or between June and October. Take your Serengeti holiday at the start of the year and you’ll be able to see the amazing sight of wildebeest and zebra young exploring their new world on shaky legs.
And, naturally, somewhere in the near distance large prides of lion will hungrily roam.
