Introduction to Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park, located in northern Tanzania, is one of the most famous and awe-inspiring wildlife reserves in the world. This UNESCO World Heritage Site spans over 14,750 square kilometers, providing a diverse and expansive ecosystem that supports an incredible array of flora and fauna. Its unique combination of grasslands, savannahs, riverine forests, and woodlands makes it an ideal habitat for the largest mammal migration on Earth, the Great Wildebeest Migration.
The Great Wildebeest Migration
The Great Wildebeest Migration is a natural phenomenon that sees more than 1.5 million wildebeest, accompanied by zebras, gazelles, and other antelope species, traverse the Serengeti in search of fresh grazing lands. This epic journey, which occurs annually, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many visitors to Tanzania. Our Great Wildebeest Migration safari packages offer the perfect opportunity to witness this spectacle up close and personal.
The migration cycle is determined by rainfall patterns, with the herds moving in a clockwise direction through the Serengeti ecosystem. Beginning in the southern plains, calving season takes place between January and March. As the dry season approaches, the herds move north towards the western corridor, crossing the perilous Grumeti River. Finally, they head to the northern Serengeti, where they cross the Mara River before returning south to repeat the cycle.
Wildlife Encounters in Serengeti National Park
In addition to the Great Wildebeest Migration, Serengeti National Park is home to the famous ‘Big Five’ – African elephants, Cape buffalo, lions, leopards, and rhinoceroses. Our Big Five safari packages are tailored to maximize your chances of spotting these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
The Serengeti is also home to an impressive variety of birdlife, including over 500 species of both migratory and resident birds. Birdwatching enthusiasts will delight in the chance to spot rare and colorful species such as the lilac-breasted roller, grey-breasted spurfowl, and the strikingly beautiful Fischer’s lovebird.
