The Serengeti National Park - Truly Africa's most famous Game Reserve!
Herewith a video by Singita Grumeti Reserve, about their
lodges etc, but an absolute fantastic depiction of the
Serengeti at the same time!
The Serengeti is Africa's most famous park. Renowned for the two million strong wildebeest 'Great Migration' and incredible concentrations of predators, the Serengeti is a park that guarantees an exceptional safari. The vast endless grass plains (Serenget in Maasai) are the richest grazing grounds on the continent; home to the largest herds on the planet, and the highest concentrations of predators in Africa. Just focusing on the Great Migration however would not be doing the park justice for it is widely believed that if you took the Great Migration out of the park, the Serengeti is still the finest park in Africa.
Originally created to preserve the path of the Great Migration, the Serengeti and its surrounding reserves cover nearly 30,000 square kilometers. Throughout the year the huge wildebeest and zebra herds move in a clockwise direction around the plains, searching for fresh grazing grounds. To maximize your chance of viewing the herds, choosing the right accommodation, for the time of year you are travelling, is crucial. Have a read of the Wildebeest and Zebra Migration page to gain a clear understanding of the movement of the herds.
The centre of the Serengeti is called Seronera. Seronera is a network of river valleys that ensure year-round water supplies and keep the region incredibly rich in wildlife throughout the year. The area has phenomenal concentrations of game and sees the migration herds move North in May to June and back again South in November to December. The only downside to this area is the number of large hotels and subsequent traffic on safari. We often use camps on the periphery of the area, giving guests the option of going into the busier area if they choose. &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas is our favorite camp here, along with the mobile camps when the migration moves through...
We only actively support those safari camps and lodges that (to our knowledge) contribute directly to community upliftment and which apply good principles of sustainable eco-tourism.
(Rural populations, across socio - economic lines, MUST be incorporated into the flow of benefits (both financial and otherwise) accruing from the tourism and wildlife industry).
