Full day Game Drives in the Serengeti Plains

Serengeti National Park is  the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world and boasts the greatest concentration of plains game in all of Africa. Established in 1952, it is home to the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. The resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive. 

Breakfast * Lunch * Dinner

The Park can be divided into 3 sections:
  • The southern/central part (Seronera Valley) with its classic savannah dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife.

  • The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River, and has more forests and dense bush.

  • The north meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve, is the least visited section. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous – over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. During the months of July-September the herds will cross the Mara River again and again in search of fresh grass. They will have to face the mighty crocodiles in the river, who are waiting quietly in the water for their opportunity.

Trip Notes


  • Safari groups consist of 2 – 6 persons per vehicle.
  • Trekking tours groups consist of 2 – 15 persons
  • We cannot guarantee viewing for the described animal observations on safari. These are wild animals in their natural habitat, and their behavior can never be guaranteed. For this reason, there is no refund if some animals are not seen. Our experienced safari guides will use all their expertise and knowledge to provide you with as much adventure and wildlife observation as possible.
  • The opening hours of the national parks are daily from 06:00 – 18:00. The maximum length of stay (until 18:00 hrs.) cannot always be exhausted, as many sections of the route in Tanzania should not be traveled in the dark. Your stay in the national parks therefore depends on your further route. Wishes and special requests can be discussed with your Safari guide.
