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.
