With more than 4 million mammals, among them wildebeests, Thomson-gazelles, zebras, impalas, topes, buffaloes, Grants- Gazelles, giraffes, and warthogs, Serengeti is an excellent park for Game viewing. Every year in May or June, zebras and wildebeest Carpet the northern Serengeti, undertaking a circuit of 100km as They thunder westwards searching for new pastures, waterholes and Young grass o the park corridor. Predators prowl the plains, and Serengeti is the only place where one can witness this annual Movement, also called “The race for life”.
The vast grass fields make Serengeti a paradise for predators. There are most hyenas, but the national park is especially known for its Lions, and you should be very out of luck not to capture quite a few Lions on camera while you are in the park, even the black manned male lions.
The first thing you spot after the drive in at Naabi Hill is a vast, flat Area of short grass, not a tree in sight for miles . As you approach Seronera in the center of the park, the grass is longer and there are Plenty of acacia trees to be seen on the savanna.
The Distance from Arusha is 320 km, and the drive takes around 7 Hours. You can also fly directly to the small air stripe at Seronera.
The best time to see this park is between December and May, when The wildebeest migration is in the south, and if you are luck, you Will catch the annual movement of wildebeest and zebras towards Masai Mara in Kenya.
