They’ll build your perfect tailor-made trip from end to end, based on your travel preferences and tastes. The Serengeti National Park boasts of the most impressive natural spectacles in the world—the annual migration of the wildebeest. If you want to feel inspired and moved by the beauty of nature, the Serengeti is the perfect place for you.

The Serengeti has a range of accommodation options, ranging from luxury hotels set within the national park, to travelers lodges, to safari camp sites. Some accommodations even have swimming pools and spas. Most accommodations have some kind of restaurant, and will offer guided game drives to guests. Your Tourlane Travel Expert will use their local expertise and insider tips to help you find something that suits your needs and budget.
The Serengeti is a great place to see a range of exotic animals, including rhinos, leopards, lions, elephants, and buffalos. One of the best ways to guarantee that you find them is to go on a guided game drive. These are typically hosted by accommodation providers, and take place at dawn and in the early afternoon. Dawn is a particularly good time to spot lions and leopards, and your driver will know how to track them down based on their experience and tip offs from other tours via walkie talkies.
One of the reasons why the Serengeti is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a protected area is the spectacular annual wildebeest migration. Propelled by the moving rainfall and a need for water, more than a million and a half animals migrate north from the Serengeti towards Kenya, with a number of obstacles and predators in their way. It is the largest single movement of animals on the planet, and listed as of the world’s eight natural wonders.
The best time to visit the Serengeti is between June and October, as this is the dry season during which the great wildebeest migration is at its peak. You’ll be amazed at the wildlife viewing during this period.
As dawn in the Serengeti is a great time to spot animals, it’s smart to bring along warm clothing for this part of the day, like long sleeved tops, long pants, and even a fleece and a warm hat. Binoculars and a camera are also both essentials, to help you spot and capture animals in the distance. For the daytimes that are warmer, it’s wise to pack shorts, t-shirts, and a sun cap. If your accommodation has a pool, make sure to bring a swimsuit.
The price of a Serengeti safari depends on your choice of accommodation, guides, how long you choose to visit for, and what time you choose to visit. Speak to a Tourlane Travel Expert for more information and a free quotation.
Due to its size and huge offering, we recommend spending at least four days and nights in the Serengeti National Park. More time increases the likelihood of seeing all the animals on your bucket list.
