Serengeti and Ngorongoro Safari Summary
Serengeti and Ngorongoro safari is the Tanzania’s first and most famous park, the Serengeti, is renowned for its wealth of leopard and lion. The vast reaches of the park help black rhino to fight extinction and provide a protected breeding ground for the vulnerable cheetah alongside the Serengeti’s thousands of other diverse species.
The annual Migration
Every year, triggered by the rains, more than a million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle gather to undertake their long trek to new grazing lands. The rutting season is a three week long bout of territorial conquests and mating, followed by survival of the fittest as the fourty kilometre long columns plunge through crocodile infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again.
Magical Golden Horizon
After the rains, the Serengeti’s magical golden horizon is transformed into an endless green carpet, flecked with wildflowers. The famous plains are interspersed with wooded hills, towering termite mounds, monumental rocky kopjes and rivers lined with elegant acacia trees.
Best time to visit Serengeti
To search for the sometimes elusive wildebeest migration, visit the Serengeti from December to July. To see predators, June to October are the best months. For the best chance of finding the migration allow a minimum of three days, longer if possible.
