ON SAFARI IN TANZANIA
When you think of Tanzania, you think of safari. And where better to go on safari than the Serengeti? The Serengeti is next to the Kruger Park one of the most famous parks in Africa … and Africa is big! So is the Serengeti. With its area of over 140,000 square meters, you can easily spend a few days here exploring.
THE GREAT MIGRATION
In the Serengeti, wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate to get their share of the daily green. The migration is at its most spectacular when, in July and August, the animals head for the northern end of the park, across the border with Kenya: the Maasai Mara. To get here, the animals must first cross two spirited rivers. It is bizarre to see how many wildebeest suddenly plunge into the river to do battle with nature. But it is not only during this period that the Serengeti is spectacular. In December and January, most of the herds are in the south of the Serengeti. This is where all the little ones are born; spring fever in the Serengeti, while it can snow in our little country.
AN ABUNDANCE OF WILDLIFE
In the Serengeti there is always something to see. Once you find yourself among the animals, nice and safe in your landcruiser with a guide who knows exactly where the animals are and how they react, then it’s enjoyment! If you look left, you see a group of hyenas surrounding a female lion. She may fear for her prey. On the other side, you’ll see a zebra innocently drinking water from a pool while a crocodile lurks in wait. Be sure to sleep one or two nights in the Serengeti to take everything in.
If you want the real safari experience, we recommend sleeping in a tent. At night you can hear the hyenas laughing and the buffalos quietly shuffle through the camp in search of a green snack. If you find a tent too much (or too little)? Then there are plenty of other options. Think of a beautiful lodge with soft princess beds and a panoramic view over the park.
