is a very substantial national park, the undisputed highlight of the wonderful Northern Tanzania
safari area and surely the greatest wildlife reserve in East Africa.
Most people think of the Serengeti as being a vast endless grassy plain, but in reality it comprise a wide range of different scenery and ecosystems. The area is best known for it massive wildebeest migration, which is a rolling year round spectacle. In addition this is the most productive area in Africa for lions and cheetahs in particular.
The Serengeti has a vast range of superb accommodation options and it well worth visiting at any time of year, usually as part of a longer overland safari through the region.
The main potential downside is the significant vehicle clustering that takes place in core areas, although this is very easily avoided. Opportunities for off-road driving, walking safari and night vehicle safari are limited. It is also quite an expensive place to visit and is better suited to a slightly more outdoorsy type of visitor.UpsidesDownsidesWhen to visitSeasonsAreasTrips
