The endless plains of the Serengeti have been the subject of countless wildlife documentaries, and if your dreams of safari include lions loping across a savannah studded with acacia trees, this is the place to come. There are little pools filled with hippos, gazelles and impala on the grasses, and cheetahs perching on termite mounts (or sometimes on your safari vehicle) in order to sight their prey. On top of this, the Serengeti’s visited annually by the mighty herds of the wildebeest migration. With such an incredible amount of wildlife the focus of activities here is on game driving with an expert wildlife guide. The main activity here is game driving- you’ll head out each day in search of whatever nature has to offer, and from there, no-one can predict what happens next! For an extra special treat, start your morning off with a hot air balloon flight over the bush – and follow it with a champagne breakfast, naturally.
Our pick of places to stay in the Serengeti:
While on safari in the Serengeti you will usually stay in luxury tents, many of which migrate around the Serengeti, roughly tracking the movements of the wildebeest migration. Sleeping under canvas in the bush is a hugely exciting, romantic experience, and having visited a huge number of safari camps in the Serengeti, we’ll recommend the one that suits your requirements best.
