one of the World’s vast wildlife sanctuaries
THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
Serengeti comes from the Maasai word ‘Siringet’ which means ‘endless plains’ and the Serengeti is just that! This is one of the World’s vast wildlife sanctuaries. The best time to see heavy concentration of game is between January and February. Life on the Serengeti is a complex cycle, the defining factor of which is the rain. Though the precise timing varies each year, the columns of herbivores stretch up to forty kilometers long as they make their way up north toward Kenya’s Maasai Mara in the month of May, from where they eventually return some eight months later. A UNESCO’s world Heritage site and a biosphere reserve since 1981 , Serengeti is home to a large prey interactions and offers game viewing, walking safaris, hot air balloon filming and photographic safaris.
