Africa's most famous game reserve, the Serengeti, is part of Tanzania's northern safari circuit, which includes the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara. The Serengeti is renowned for its wildlife viewing, with predators such as lions, jackals, cheetahs and hyenas enjoying rich pickings of abundant plains game.
This is especially so during the fabled annual migration. This wondrous event sees more than two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles pass through the grasslands and acacia woodlands of the Serengeti - whose name means ‘endless plain' in the Maasai language.
As well as migrating animals, the Serengeti Plains support significant numbers of permanent residents, meaning that safaris can be enjoyed here year round. There's a wide choice of lodges and campsites, from which guided game drives can be taken. Balloon safaris offer another perspective of the ‘endless plain', drifting gently above the trees and following the course of the Grumeti River. Crocodiles live in the river and are a fearsome obstacle for the migrating herds to overcome when they cross the river each year.
