Holidays to Serengeti

The Serengeti is hailed as a true marvel of the natural world, for excellent reasons. From the tranquil views that seem to stretch into eternity to the dynamic interactions between predator and prey, the Serengeti stands as a testament to the sheer wonder of our planet's biodiversity.

Little can prepare you for the diversity in nature of the Serengeti. Wildebeests and zebras cross paths with lions and cheetahs and everywhere you look is an incredible sight of nature at its finest. Witness Tarangire's massive elephant herds, discover the Ngorongoro Crater's big five, encounter tree-climbing lions in Manyara and time your visit with the awe-inspiring wildebeest migration, a colossal terrestrial wildlife spectacle. Beyond the wildlife, holidays to the Serengeti also take you to the locals, the native people who have called this land home for thousands of years. 

What you can expect to see during holidays to the Serengeti

The Serengeti is a playground for the word's wildest animals. Here are 5 things you can expect to see on a holiday to the Serengeti.

The Great Migration

Witness one of the most incredible wildlife spectacles on the planet as millions of wildebeest, zebras and other herbivores migrate in search of fresh grasslands, often pursued by predators. Holidays to the Serengeti, especially at the appropriate time of year, often follow this migration and create an awe-inspiring experience for travellers.

The Big 5


During holidays to the Serengeti, encountering the Big Five is a thrilling experience. The Big Five, comprising the lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros, represent some of Africa's most iconic and sought-after wildlife. In the Serengeti's vast plains and diverse habitats, you have the opportunity to witness these magnificent animals in their natural environment.

Predator-Prey Interactions

The vast grasslands and abundant wildlife provide a stage for dramatic encounters between hunters and their quarry. Lions, cheetahs, and leopards are often seen stalking and chasing down their prey, while herds of wildebeest and zebras constantly stay vigilant, relying on their collective strength and instincts to evade potential threats.

Spectacular Landscapes

Holidays to the Serengeti offer travellers the opportunity to witness some of the world's most spectacular landscapes. The vast savannas stretch endlessly, adorned with golden grasses swaying in the breeze, providing a canvas for iconic wildlife sightings. Acacia woodlands and riverine forests add a touch of greenery to the plains, while rocky outcrops, known as kopjes, offer commanding viewpoints for both wildlife and breathtaking sunsets.

Abundant Birdlife

Holidays to the Serengeti offer bird enthusiasts a true paradise, with an abundance of birdlife to marvel at. The region is home to over 500 bird species, including colourful and exotic varieties like lilac-breasted rollers, secretary birds, marabou storks and vibrant starlings.
