The Serengeti has long been famed as one of the most iconic wildlife sanctuaries with the greatest and most spectacular concentration of game animals found anywhere in the world
The majestic beauty certainly lives up to its reputation, never failing to capture one’s heart as you are confronted by all the natural wonder that Africa has to offer. The Serengeti ecosystem spans 30,000 sq km and is host to the annual wildebeest migration, which remains in Tanzania for approximately 8-9 months of the year.
Home to not only the BIG 5 Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Buffalo, Leopard, you will find an abundance of wildlife across the Savanah plains. The vegetation attracts common mammals like the Topi, Gazelles, Wildabest, Impala, and Zebras just to name a few. Here you are likely to see the racing speeds of the elegant Cheetah, Spotted Hyenas scavenging for their next meal or Hippos lounging in the community pool.
On the western corridor is the Grumeti River, know for it’s dramatic landscape of crocodiles who have patiently waited months for their annual feast of the 2 Million Wildebeest and Zebras migrating into the Maasai Mara in search of fresh grass during June, July and August.
