On safari in Tanzania
When you think of Tanzania, you think of a safari. And where better to go on safari than in the Serengeti? Next to the Kruger National Park in South Africa, The Serengeti is one of the most famous parks in Africa … and Africa is big! As is the case with the Serengeti. With its area of more than 140,000 square meters, you can easily spend a few days here and explore.
The Great Migration
Wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles roam the Serengeti to get their daily portion of greenery. The migration is at its most spectacular when the animals migrate to the northern side of the park in July and August, across the border into Kenya: the Maasai Mara. To get there, the animals must first cross two wild rivers. It is a bizarre sight when hundreds of wildebeest suddenly collapse into the river to fight against nature. But the Serengeti is not only spectacular during this time of year. In December and January, most of the herds are located in the south of the Serengeti. All these beautiful creatures are born then and there; spring jitters in the Serengeti, while most of us will be seeing snow from our windows.
An abundance of wildlife
There is no dull moment in the Serengeti. Once you are among the animals, nice and safe in your land cruiser, with a guide who knows exactly where to find them and what they’re doing, it will be an unforgettable experience! When you look to the left, you will see a group of hyenas surrounding a female lion. She may fear for her freshly caught prey. On the other side, you see a zebra drinking innocently from a pool of water while a crocodile is lurking. Make sure to sleep in the Serengeti for one or two nights to have the full experience.
Spend the night
If you want the real safari experience, we recommend that you sleep in a tent. You can hear the hyenas laughing at night and the buffalo quietly shuffling through the camp in search of a snack. If a tent is not your cup of tea, then there are plenty of other options. Think of a beautiful lodge with soft beds and a panoramic view of the park.
