  • Great trip we did 2 days and stayed in the park. I think we got to see every animal it was amazing. Btw the beasts come with flys and insects be prepared they will fill the vehicle.  more »
  • But I will try! Herds of impala so vast they change the colour of the landscape. Acacia trees creating a canopy like a ceiling over the savannah with the sky above. Cheetah with cubs. Lions suckling c...  more »
  • We visited on 19 and 20 December the park with our guide Peter Savannah Explorers and were certainly not disappointed. The most exciting thing was the wildebeest migration ' and to a lesser extent of zebras and antelopes which we saw in the middle and South of the Park. Obviously the many lions and cheetahs that we saw were as exciting

  • I just visited the place... it's really amazing.. when I visited the park i saw the hyena,more than 18 lions, elephants and a lot of animals i was really happy. I encourage everybody to make a visit to Serengeti National Park found in Tanzania. Mara Region
  • Most enriching wildlife experience ever. I had a great luck of visiting this place and spend more than a day. Lunch at the Sarengeti Bush Camp is worth living an experience all together.
  • The great safari destination in the Africa. If you are planning an African safari then, this should be in your bucket list. We did a 5 days/4 nights safari to Serengeti in 2016 with a local company called Jiwe adventures and everything was absolutely amazing. We saw plenty of animals and of course the great wildebeest migration crossing the Mara river. It was a lifetime experience I hope to come back with my family.
  • Everything you thought about Serengeti is true. It is magical and will envelop you in her beauty. Make sure and find the right guide for how you want to run your safari. If you’re considering doing a self-guided safari as a part of your overland travel I highly recommend against it. They keep the radios on and are communicating to one another in Swahili about the locations of the animals. I see how it would be easy to drive around and get frustrated if you didn’t know what you were doing.
  • Great place. Saw many animals but missed the black rhino which we saw in Ngorongoro there next day. Big, vast reminds me of Montana but with lions and elephants instead of cattle
