Safari Paradise

Serengeti National Park is renowned for its incredible biodiversity and serves as a sanctuary for Africa’s “Big Five” – lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, and rhinoceroses. However, this park is not limited to the Big Five; it’s a haven for a diverse range of wildlife, including cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, hippos, crocodiles, hyenas, and a multitude of bird species.

The Great Migration: A Natural Marvel

One of the most spectacular events in the natural world, the Great Migration, unfolds in Serengeti. This annual migration involves millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores moving across the park in search of fresh grazing lands. The migration follows a circular route that encompasses the southern plains of Serengeti, the western corridor, the northern Serengeti, and the dramatic Mara River crossings.

To witness this awe-inspiring event, it’s essential to plan your visit during the right time of year:
