Serengeti National Park

Latest News from the Serengeti. The Wildebeest migration are now out of the Maasai Mara and in the Serengeti National Park at the southern end of the Serengeti Ecosystem where they are giving birth to some 500,000 calfs. This is an incredible time to visit should you wish.

Serengeti National Park (Serengeti) is located in Tanzania, best known for its abundance of animals and the great wildebeest migration.

The Serengeti stretches 14,763 (5,700 sq miles) stretching North to Kenya and bordering Lake Victoria to the West.

Serengeti has the highest concentration of large mammals on this planet and its famous known for its 2,500 Lions the largest concentration found anywhere. The park also has over 518 identified bird species where some of them are Eurasian migrants who are present in the European winter months from October to April.

Accommodation: There is a wide range of places to stay in the Serengeti Ecosystem. There is also a very good Serengeti Map if you would like to know more about the general size and area.

Distance

With the Serengeti only 335 km (208 miles) from Arusha it is still a very long drive due to the roads. If you are driving to the Serengeti National Park it is recommended to stop off on the way. We would like to point out that if you are interested in visiting the Ngorongoro Crater on the way, it is best to get to the rim the afternoon before and then spend the whole next day in the Crater.

Best time to visit

Following the Wildebeest migration from Serengeti National Park to Maasai Mara National Reserve, the best time is December to July and to see the predators the best time is June to October.

Recommended number of days

Due to the amount to be seen in the reserve it’s recommendable to have three or four day’s safari. If you are interested in photography, the longer you stay the better chances you have to get the ultimate photos.
