  • One of the finest and unique national park. The place is frequently visited by many tourist throughout the year. A sublime experience for all. The wildlife diversity is just unbelievable. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Site seeing and camping is excellent. The game drives are worth amidst the park. It tour packages are bit expensive but is worth. The vast ecosystem is wonderful.
  • Lions, gazelles, elephants, wildebeest, hippos.. all the Big 5 except the rhino which is quite elusive due to the poaching... So lovely... Breath taking! A must do at least once in your lifetime
  • The Serengeti hosts the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, which helps secure it as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, and as one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world. The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment. The region contains the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and several game reserves. Approximately 70 large mammal and 500 bird species are found there.
  • Matembezi tented camp is just amazing. With no running water and electricity you still have all the creature comforts you desire. The food and dining room tent and sleeping tents - en suite , are 5 star.
  • This is the most majestic, picturesque land in all of continental Africa, untamed for thousands of years. A land where herds graze, and predators prowl from beneath the grass. This is the one and only Serengeti. A wild, and vast land of beauty.

Where to stay in Serengeti National Park

When visiting Serengeti National Park, it's worth forgoing the luxuries of a modern hotel for a chance to stay in rustic, traditional bush accommodations. Most of these come in the form of permanent camps, where large canvas tents are converted into basic but comfortable rooms. Other options include wooden or brick lodges--you're unlikely to find any truly modern buildings in this well-preserved region. The most popular area to stay is near the Seronera Airstrip, although the prevalence of safari-style transport means you can stay anywhere within the park without any extra inconvenience.
