Serengeti National Park

This is a fabulous 2-day Tanzania road safari that takes you to one of the most famous safari destination on the Northern Safari Circuit – Serengeti National Park. The tour begins and ends in Mwanza, on the southern shores of Lake Victoria in Tanzania.

The Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s largest and most famous park. Established in 1951, it gets its name from the Maasai word Siringet meaning ‘Endless Plain’. The park is loved for its sweeping plains, abundant wildlife and the breathtaking annual Great Migration.

Beginning from Mwanza, we travel to the Serengeti, situated in north-west Tanzania. Serengeti’s Ndabaki Gate is about 140 km from Mwanza along the Mwanza – Musoma road and gives direct access to the Western Corridor.  

Serengeti National Park is huge – it is broadly divided into four distinct areas – the central Seronera Valley, the Western Corridor, the Northern Lobo and Kogatende areas, and finally the Southern Plains.

We Embark on 4×4 game drive starting from Ndabaka gate on the western corridor where the landscape is more wooded and it is common to see giraffe, elephants, zebra, impala, topi, ostrich, hippos, waterbuck, and many smaller animals.

Then we drive to Central Serengeti which is a large plain and full of tall grass and find big cats such as lions, leopards, and cheetah. If the time is right, the wildebeest migration is incredible to see.

We stop for a picnic lunch and later enjoy some more rewarding game viewing in the afternoon, before heading to our camp/ lodge in Serengeti for a night in the African wilderness. 

Accommodation options include Dunia camp, Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge, Meliá Serengeti Lodge, Mbalageti Serengeti, Four Seasons Safari Lodge, Serengeti Kati Kati Camp and Serengeti Tortilis Camp.

The following day we spend a half day enjoying superb game viewing in the Serengeti.  The park offers spectacular game viewing year-round, being home to healthy populations of Africa’s Big Five – rhino, lion, buffalo, elephant and leopard as well as huge numbers of various antelope species such as eland, topi, kudu, impala, oribi, waterbuck and gazelle.

Cheetah, hippo, giraffe, serval cat, crocodile, hyena and a rich array of other wildlife including numerous monkey, mongoose and rodent species also inhabit the Serengeti, along with over 500 bird species!

We enjoy our packed lunch boxes at one of the picnic sites and after a thrilling wildlife experience, we travel back to Mwanza where this short Serengeti overnight safari ends.

Serengeti National Park Highlights | What to Do and See

Serengeti Visitor Center: The Serengeti Visitor Centre is worth a stop for its self-guided walking path that provides informative signs and exhibits about the history of the Serengeti, its ecosystem, and its wildlife.

The Serengeti’s Great Migration: Throughout the year huge herds of wildebeest and zebra move in a clockwise direction around the vast plains, searching for fresh grazing grounds.

Witnessing the migration in the Serengeti is really as good as it gets in terms of your Tanzania Safari.

Serengeti daytime game drives:  The main attraction here is the wildlife. Serengeti National Park houses a huge population of large mammals, including giraffes, baboons, elephants, hippos, and, of course, lions.

You’ll also come across more than 500 species of birds, most notably, ostriches.

When you tire of gazing at grazers, head to Moru Kopjes to mingle with rhinos or to the Retina Hippo Pool to watch these massive mammals splash about.

Serengeti Balloon Safaris: There are no words that can do the experience of floating over the Serengeti justice.” Get a birds-eye view of the park as you rise alongside the sun.

The flight lasts about an hour, after which passengers gather round a table, surrounded by the park’s lush plains, for an “Out of Africa” English-style breakfast.
