Serengeti’s vast and iconic ecosystem is in northern Tanzania, East Africa. It stretches approximately 30,000 square kilometers (12,000 square miles) and encompasses the Serengeti National Park, multiple game reserves, and protected areas. Here’s some information about the Serengeti:
Wildlife Migration: The park is renowned for hosting the annual Great Migration, considered one of the world’s most spectacular wildlife events. Millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles each year undertake a circular journey in search of fresh grazing.
Mawe Tented Camp and Gnu Migration Camps are a good combination for your safari experience.
Gnu Migration camp follows the herd of the great migration in the South from December to March and the North from June to November.
Mawe Camp is a permanent camp located on the central-Eastern Serengeti on the Soit-Le-Motony plains close to Namiri, which is well known as the resident home to famous cats like cheetahs, leopards, and lions. The camp faces the Ngarenanyuki River, the main attraction to animals during the heat peak hours of the day.
Serengeti is great for a visit throughout the year. Green season starts from Late March to late April and from Mid November to Middle of December, making this time great to see the newborn babies from variety of wild animals.
Dry season is great to witness the great migration, big cats in action and the brown savannah.
