Serengeti and Grumeti Safaris

Easily one of Africa's most famous national parks, the Serengeti holds the highest concentration of mammals on earth. The stunning park, with its endless savannah grasslands, acacia woodlands and rocky kopjes can be visited independently on a fly-in safari or as a feature in a northern circuit safari. To take in all the Serengeti has to offer spending around 3 to 4 nights here is recommended. We always like to place a visit to the park at the end of an itinerary, this way your holiday ends on a high.

Perhaps best known for the annual Great Migration; over a million wildebeest are joined by thousands of zebra in one of nature's most fascinating spectacles. Part of a continuous cycle, the wildebeest follow the annual rains in search of fresh pasture, shifting between the Serengeti and Maasai Mara eco-systems.

Bordering the Serengeti is a number of adjacent reserves, Singita Grumeti being most noteworthy. Practicing low impact tourism, conservation aware and exclusive in its activities and properties Grumeti is an important part of the Great Migration. Forming part of the wildebeest's migratory path this is prime game viewing territory.

With a Serengeti and Grumeti safari discover a diverse eco-system that is home to a plethora of species, from elephant to vibrant birdlife. Lion are plentiful and cheetah can be seen pacing the plains while leopard lounge in the branches of sausage trees. Game drives are the standard means of exploring this captivating 15,000kmĀ² wilderness, although for a thrill hot-air balloon safaris are well worth the extra expense. Accommodation ranges from classic tented camps to luxury lodges. There's also exclusive mobile camps designed to place guests as close to the Great Migration as possible.
