Serengeti National Park
Where to go
Set in the central area of northern Tanzania, the magnificent Serengeti National Park is home to what is widely considered to be the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth - the annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra seeking new pastures. These massive herds move in a clockwise direction around the Serengeti, their concentrations and movements dictated by the availability of water and grazing areas. As a result, where you choose to go in the park will likely depend on where the majority of animals happen to be focused during your stay.
The park is renowned for its vast plains of savannah in the south and central region, which offer excellent safari opportunities throughout the year, especially during the calving season, which attracts large numbers of big cats. Travellers eager to witness the herds making their perilous journey across the crocodile-infested Grumeti River should head to the park’s Western Corridor, which is also an excellent destination for bird watching, with over 400 species recorded in the area. The northern reaches of the park, characterised by lush rolling hills and densely vegetated granite outcrops, also offer impressive river crossings particularly from around August to October, when the herds cross the Mara River on their way north to the neighbouring Masai Mara National Reserve.
Must See: The marshy Western Corridor’s Grumeti River, where hungry crocodiles prey on distressed zebra and wildebeest as they attempt to cross the river on their annual mass migration.
Singita Grumeti is located adjacent to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, bordering the national park, and encompasses 400,000 acres of unrivalled wilderness. Wide river valleys meandering through the plains, grasslands, woodland and forest. The area forms part of the famous migratory route, which is travelled by hundreds of thousands of animals every year. Grumeti features unparalleled exclusivity combined with the ability to enjoy a wide selection of activities not allowed inside the Serengeti as it not governed by national park regulations.
The famous Great Migration, an annual trek of 2 million animals through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, bisects our reserve annually. Called The Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth it has, since time immemorial, been the dramatic backbone of this enormous wilderness.
