Luxury Tanzania Safari - Zebras

Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world and it has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. Established in 1952, it is home to the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. The resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive. The Park can be divided into 3 sections:

  1. The southern/central part (Seronera Valley) with its classic savannah dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife.
  2. The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River, and has more forests and dense bush.
  3. The north meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve, is the least visited section. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous – over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. During the months of July-September, the herds will cross the Mara River again and again in search of fresh grass. They will have to face the mighty crocodiles in the river, who are waiting quietly in the water for their opportunity.

 Ngorongoro – Serengeti National Park. After breakfast, you will depart to Serengeti National Park on an en-route game drive spotting animals and searching for the migration. Lunch will be at a picnic site. After lunch proceed with a game drive as you proceed to the lodge.
