The vast and sensational Serengeti, which covers 14,763 sq. km of endlessly rolling savannah plains, is Tanzania’s most famous park. It is home to tens of thousands of hoofed animals of which the million-plus wildebeest are the predominant herbivore and also the main prey of a huge cast of large carnivores, principally lion and hyena. While the annual migration is the Serengeti’s most famous attraction, the Park is also renowned for its large lion population, and additionally for its wealth of cheetah, zebra, giraffe, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle, eland, impala, klipspringer, hippo and warthog.
The Great Migration i.e. the Wildebeest migration from the Serenget (Tanzania) to Masai Mara (Kenya) in July to October; and then back again from Masai Mara to Serengeti starting October of each year. During this all year round phenomena, over one and a half million wildebeest accompanied by half again as many zebras and gazelles, migrate from the short-grass plains of the Serengeti to fresh pasture in the grasslands of the Mara; thus creating one of nature’s grandest spectacles. Moving in groups of up to 20,000 at a time they thunder across the plateau hesitating only briefly to cross the Mara River, where many fall prey to the waiting crocodiles. Towards the end of October they begin crossing back into the Serengeti.
In this Migration special safari tour, we do our Game drives in the midst of this spectacle in the Serengeti.
