Serengeti National Park
Home to the world’s greatest single concentration of wildlife, the Serengeti National Park is the Africa of the imagination. Known as ‘the land that goes on forever’, its rolling savannahs are where elephants, buffalo, big cats and antelope co-exist with red-robed Maasai herders. It is of course most famous for its annual wildebeest migration when over a million animals move between the Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara. But it is in the Serengeti that some of the most exciting chapters of the migration play out: the birthing season (when up to 400 000 calves are born) or the migration river-crossings, when the wildebeest herds run the gauntlet of monstrous crocodiles as they return to the Masai Mara.

When to go to Serengeti National Park?
The best times to visit Serengeti National Park are from January to February or from June through September, although you should plan your trip around the movement of The Great Migration. For example, winter is the best time to see the herd in Southern Serengeti, while the Western Corridor and Northern Serengeti are the best places to spend the summer and autumn months. Most safari operators will have a good idea of where the animals are headed and when, and most will adjust their itineraries based on the herd’s movement. Temperatures remain relatively constant with daytime highs resting in the 80s. You’ll find cooler weather in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area due to its higher elevation. April and May see the most rainfall, and many lodges and camps close for this slower season. Read more ….
Getting to Serengeti
The recommended point of entry is Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) which lies between the towns of Moshi and Arusha. The airport is located about 200 miles from the park’s southern entrance. There are a couple of international flight options such as KLM (daily), Turkish Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines (a couple of times per week).
Kilimanjaro International Airport also has daily connections with Nairobi (NBO) in Kenya, which offers more international flight possibilities. Additional airlines such as British Airways, Emirates and others fly into Tanzania’s capital Dar es Salaam (DAR).
Please note that arriving at Dar es Salaam may require an extra overnight and a domestic flight on a small regional airline with luggage restrictions.
Most travellers start their Serengeti safari adventure at either Kilimanjaro International Airport or bustling Arusha. From here you may either travel to your preferred lodge by means of a short transfer flight or by safari vehicle. It is also possible to combine the two and enjoy the best of both worlds!
