The Serengeti has long been famed as one of the most beautiful wildlife rich areas of Africa in which to go on safari, and it certainly lives up to its reputation, never failing to capture one’s heart as you are confronted by all the romanticism and drama that Africa has to offer. Located in the North West region of Tanzania, with an invisible border with Kenya’s Masai Mara. The Serengeti ecosystem spans 30,000 sq km and is host to the annual wildebeest migration, which remains in Tanzania for approximately 8-9 months of the year.
To see some of the two million wildebeest try to cross the treacherous Mara River in pursuit of Kenya’s fresh grass is an unforgettable experience – and to game drive across the open plains without another person or vehicle in sight, is enough to make the heart flutter. The Serengeti is typically an end point for the Northern Circuit Safari, and is remote, starkly beautiful and deserted in the areas we recommend.
The Luxury Safari Company’s favourite camps in the Serengeti are Serian Serengeti and Lamai Nomad – these all combine beautifully as a Northern Tanzania Circuit safari and beach holiday, with beach options on Zanzibar, Mozambique, and the Tanzania Coast.Show Less
