There’s a good reason the Serengeti’s the best known safari destination in the world. Even if you exclude the Wildebeest Migration with its 1.5 million odd animals, the proliferation of animal life in this park defies belief, so if you’re looking for an epic wildlife safari there are few better places to start.
In the company of a good guide a safari in the Serengeti can feel like stepping into a wildlife documentary. You’ll find a selection of safaris we’ve organized for clients in the past here or give us a call if you'd like some tailored suggestions for your safari.
The migration is the headline act in the Serengeti and it’s well worth making this a focal point of your safari, however many people miss the other great aspect of the park, which is its extraordinary size and variety.
As the majority of visitors are drawn to wherever the migration happens to be, with a bit of cunning and some good local knowledge, it is possible to have large areas of this exceptional park almost to your self.
What’s more you’ll still encounter breathtaking wildlife with a very good chance of seeing most of the major mammal species from lion (virtually guaranteed) to leopard, elephant, buffalo and all of the major plains game, not to mention well in excess of 400 species of bird.
When it comes to accommodation the choice is bewildering from boutique camps and lodges to some more esoteric and wild choices like our light mobile camp, which we use to great effect to explore the wilder edges of this park.
For a small number of companies of which we’re one, walking safaris are possible in remote wilderness zones of the Serengeti – here you can walk and sleep in light mobile camps under the stars, without seeing another soul for days.
We specialize in creating safaris that are journeys in themselves, creating a balanced itinerary to suit you and your interests. Get in touch and we’ll be happy to share some ideas with you.
You’ll also find an example of a safari that takes in some stunning wild areas at a time when there are few visitors here.
