The Timeless Plains of the Serengeti National Park


We live in a world where everything changes, everything in our lives, from the jobs we do, to the places we live, the clothes we wear to the language we use.  But there is one area on the planet where the needle of time has worn a circular groove and where it is still possible to walk and wonder at the past. Here obeying ancient biological imperatives, millions of hooves thunder along timeless routes in the greatest of all wildlife spectacles.  This is the Serengeti.  This is how it has always been.

When the dry season begins, over one and a half million wildebeest, 250,000 Thomsom’s gazelles and about 200,000 zebras thunder north to find fresh pastures in the Masia Mara, before then moving southwards for the whole cycle to commence again.  

 

The Wildebeest thunder through a variety of reserves and protected areas and through a variety of habitat.

The Serengeti is justifiably famous for its dense concentrations of wildlife, especially the big cats, as well as being the host of the pathway for the great Migration, the annual race to find enough water and green grass for survival.

 

The Serengeti National Park is formed of three distinct areas, the Seronera Valley and Seronera River, the Western Corridor and the Northern Lobo area that extends northwards to join the Masai Mara.  This immense expanse was discovered in 1913 by Stewart Edward White at a time when great stretches of Africa were unknown to the white man.  A tailor made safaris into the Serengeti allows you to recapture the moment experienced by White all those years ago. 

 

Research your luxury safari and choose from a variety of luxurious camps and lodges and benefit from the most experienced and professional guides.  Wake up and feel like you are the only person for miles, in the safe knowledge that you are also being looked after.
