www.Photo-Safaris.com - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!
Alternative camps and lodges used can be substituted with others, which may be inside the National Parks, or with those located in private concession areas outside of National Parks. Naturally, by doing so the costs are subject to change, but one benefit is that by doing so, one can also do activities which are normally not available within the National Parks, e.g. night game drives and game walks. A very popular safari for honeymooners and families with children alike!

The Serengeti National Park is one of the most popular and spectacular game areas in East Africa, covering an area of 14,765 square kilometers teaming with game.
A particular feature of the Serengeti is the annual migration of the wildebeest and zebra herds. Each year, after the traditional "short" rains in November the migration starts when the herds amass in their thousands on the plains below the Ngorongoro highlands. During February they move north and west following the rains and the new grasslands, and they start to move into the Masai Mara in July.
In October they move back to Tanzania. This annual phenomenon involves more than 1.5 million animals, including the lion and other predators who follow the herds for easy pickings. The whole process affects the lives of thousands of other species who rely on the passage of the migration for their survival, even the insects, not to mention the trees and plants which rely on the droppings for their fertilization.
