Famous for it's annual wildbeest migration , the Serengeti in northwestern Tanzania is the nation's largest national park spanning over 14000 sq kms. It continues into Kenya in the the north as the Masai Mara National Park and to the southeast in Tanzania as the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area.
Apart from it's main attraction of wildbeest, the star cast of the Serengeti also includes the lion, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, leopard, ostrich, gazelle and water buffalo.There is also a amazing variety of bird life including the secretary bird, ostrich and the african vulture.
December to May is the best season to visit the park, since the north-south wildbeest migration during this time concentrates all the wildlife in the Serengeti. Calving season in February is a popular tourist attraction. Thousands of wildbeest are born every day during this season and although few will survive to make that years migration to the Masai Mara, it is supposed to be a splendid sight to behold.
We visited in November and were lucky to see everything the plains had to offer including the elusive leopard in a tree. November is the short rainy season, but except for the lone downpour on our way to the Serengeti, we had gorgeous blue skies and dry weather the entire time.
Seronera is a good base for your Serengeti excursion. Most safari trips usually concentrate thier game drives in the Seronera region which is served by an airport and a few lodging and camping options. We stayed at the Seronera Wildlife Lodge.
