From Big Five sightings to tracking the Great Migration, exploring the Serengeti is a bucket-list experience…
Spend a full day exploring the wonders of the Serengeti, from Big Five sightings to tracking the Great Migration. Head out in the morning with one of our guides, who have expert knowledge of the Serengeti’s wildlife and terrain. Our 4×4 Landcruisers have open roofs and large windows for supreme animal sightings and photography. We’ll take a packed lunch and pick a shady place in the bush with incredible views to enjoy our picnic.
As you ride across the Serengeti’s endless plains and woodlands, you’ll see various African animals including giraffes, hyenas and hippos. Rhinos are hard to spot, but you’ll likely see the other members of the Big Five, as well as cheetahs and grazing game. You never know what you’ll encounter; the most surprising experience I’ve ever had was witnessing a large male leopard kill a younger one for straying into his territory.
If you visit the Serengeti during the Great Migration, you’ll also see massive herds of wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle. We’ll park up to watch the animals run a gauntlet through the crocodile-infested waters of the Grumeti River. The animals are followed overland by predators searching for a meal, so you might even witness a big cat kill. Outside of the main migration, the Serengeti is still full of wildlife and hosts other natural events, including the wildebeest calving in the grasslands, so it’s a great place to explore all year round.
Your journey will start with one of our UK team – someone like Gemma, who's travelled extensively in Tanzania. They’ll shape your ideas into the trip of a lifetime. But they won't do it on their own. They'll draw on the expertise of our contacts on the ground, connecting you to the people who'll make your holiday one you'll always remember - the rangers who'll ensure you'll spot the best wildlife, the village chiefs who'll give you a genuine insight into local life and the camp managers who can recommend the very best spot to enjoy your sundowner.
