The Serengeti National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site overflowing with wildlife, with over 2 million ungulates, 4000 lions, 1000 leopards, 550 cheetahs, and 500 bird species inhabiting a 15,000-square-kilometer region. Explore the boundless Serengeti plains lined with trees and kopjes from which majestic lions rule; marvel at the Great Migration; or track down an elusive leopard in a riverine woodland with us on a safari. Alternatively, take a hot air balloon tour to see everything from a bird’s eye view and soar over the plains at sunrise. There are lodging alternatives for every budget, and the sound of lions roaring at night is included.

The Serengeti National Park is a natural wonderland. At its most uncontrollable. However, aside from the Great Migration, there is a lot more for you to learn about and experience.

The Serengeti is the ideal location for a flawless safari, a goal that continually fulfills your wildest expectations. Why not go exploring in some of the more distant areas of this massive public park? On the other hand, why not meet your Maasai hosts? Obviously, when flying through the air on a sight-seeing balloon safari, you may also take to the skies and see the fields from above.

What to Expect in Serengeti

Great Wildebeest Migration

The incredible journey is the world’s longest overland movement. The relocation route is approximately 800 kilometers long (500 mi). The Ngorongoro Conservation Area lies to the south of this relocation route, and it is here that a huge number of 1,000,000 wildebeests are brought into the world between January and March. By March, when the dry season begins, around 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebras had begun to migrate north towards Kenya’s Maasai Mara. The wildebeest are joined by eland, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle. The migrating groups pass through the Western Corridor in April and May.

50 wildebeests suffocate for every wildebeest taken by the crocodiles. When the dry season comes to an end in late October, the migrating throngs begin to return south. Every year, around 250,000 wildebeests and 30,000 field zebras die from suffocation, predation, exhaustion, dehydration, or infection.

Wildlife

Beginning in 2005, Serengeti National Park and Maasai Mara National Reserve formed a Lion Conservation Unit. This biological system is home to almost 3,000 lions. In the dry season, the African panther’s population density is estimated to be 5.41 persons per 100 km2 (39 sq mi).

African shrubbery elephant populations recovered from a population low caused by poaching in the 1980s, and by 2014, they numbered more than 5,000 individuals. Poaching decimated the African bison population between 1976 and 1996, but it rebounded to 28,524 individuals by 2008. Poaching reduced the dark rhinoceros population to roughly ten individuals in the 1980s. Today, less than 50 people survive, primarily in areas less prone to being influenced by wildfires. Rhinos eat grasses, woody Indigofera, Acacia, and Crotalaria forbs and bushes for the most part.
