Serengeti National Park

An iconic location of the Great Migration, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Tanzania’s oldest national park

The Serengeti has long been lauded as a truly life-changing safari experience, a place of legend where the sheer mass of animals will call a vibration that you can feel in the ground you stand on. This national park is home to a tremendous 2 million ungulates — including zebra and wildebeest — along with the predators that hunt them – including 4000 lions, 1000 leopards and 550 cheetahs, not to mention the crocodiles that wait in the rivers and around 500 bird species. From the sun-soaked plains to vast riverine canyons and rocky outcrops, this diverse landscape is also the seat of an ancient history of our own human race, as well as the famed Maasai people.

Best time to go to

The dry season is by far the most popular time to venture to the Serengeti to witness the Great Migration from late June to October. During the drier months, the bush is also less dense and animals flock to remaining water sources. However, the wet season – November to May – also holds its share of wonders with lush landscapes, vibrant birdlife and baby animals, not to mention far fewer crowds. These rainer months also come with increased predator activity, which results in thrilling wildlife encounters.

What our travellers are saying

Because of the easy way we communicated with our Viatu expert, it felt like planning our holidays with a friend. It made it really flexible and perfectly suitable for our needs. The accommodations that he suggested were just wonderful and a perfect mix of everything we needed.

I'm very thankful for my first Viatu experience. The 3-week trip across Namibia combined incredible landscapes and nature, mindblowing eco-friendly lodges and utter peace of mind. The organisation and support of the Viatu team were spot-on - this is the way to impress. Thanks a lot!

We loved using the Viatu Trip Builder to design our holidays in South Africa. It was super easy and transparent. Our holidays were great and the few times we needed support, our consultant Benoit was very quick and helpful.
