Why Visit Serengeti National Park?  Animal Life and Sighting Opportunities  

Maasai people called this park ‘Siringet‘, meaning endless plains. The Serengeti National Park speaks for itself and with good reason not only the migration of over 1 million wildebeest through its plains and woodlands but also unique landscapes and other spectacular wildlife.

The Serengeti is home to the world’s largest populations of Wildebeest, Zebra, Cape Eland, Lion, Cheetah, Hyena and Gazelles. The scenic beauty of the sky with cool nights and warm days makes your visit to this remaining home for great migration of large mammals incredible!

One of the things the park is most famous for is its breathtaking animal migrations that take place throughout the year. These massive migrations include herds of various hoofed animals including wilder beasts, zebras and gazelles to name a few.

These animals can be seen on the move or can be witnessed grazing on the planes by those visiting. The experience of witnessing animals on the move in large herds can be added to by opting for the balloon safari option offered by the park. Visitors may charter a hot air balloon for a breathtaking aerial view of the park and wildlife within.

Apart from this, game drives both during the day and at night offer visitors the chance to witness the beautiful local animal population immersed in their natural activities. Animals that are commonly seen on such drives include lions, leopards and elephants as well as many others.
