Outstanding animal and bird viewing !!!
Overall rating

The Serengeti was outstanding in animal numbers ... wildebeast lined the horizon , Momma Cheetah sunning with her two offsprings until the " boy" decides to wander and Momma yelps him back from over the creek and a mile away , vultures waiting their turn on a " kill" because maribou storks ( the ugliest ever ! ) and hyenas feast first, and the beauty of a grey crested crane nearby a group of lions ( two mating) , and a huge bull elephant leading new borns thru the ticket ... after he pulled up small trees for their eating. We watched all species of Mother animals nurse their young and care for them , uninhibited by us or visible predators . Our guides Brian , Jarad, and Francis of Ecological Wildlife Adventures made sure our viewing was excellent. They knew where the animals where and how they would react. At all times our viewing was safe, and most interesting. Food was excellent .We loved breakfasts on the trail, warm weather, safe accommodations and the wild, natural scenery with few other tourists or nature viewers. Lodges were " first class" and excellent contrast to the wilds. But the serengeti is a " must " visit for an African Safari .

Seronera - in central Serengeti
Overall rating

Seronera in central Serengeti is truly a magical place you want to be while on safari.
There are abundant number of animals to see including the big five, as well as many different species of birds.
The landscaping is also beautiful....

The beauty of nature
Overall rating

It was our first safari, so we were overwhelmed, but in our jeep several participants had quite some experience. They stated they never saw such wildlife in other parks in other countries (number of animals as well as diversity). We wonder now what this park looks like during the rain season...
Curiosity : due to a flat tyre we were late at the gate to leave the park. In spite of clear evidence (pictures and the spare wheel in place) the guards rewarded him with a 300 US $ fine (taken care of by Sunny Safaris). My conclusion is that the gate keepers of Serengeti are wild animals as well...

Tanzania proved me that real wildlife is still possible to be experienced in this threatened world!
Overall rating

Luck, good karma, faith... I don't know what it was and I truly don't care.
To be able to see close up the big five and the little five during the same safari is no easy and in some cases not very likely.
I want to think that it was my true conviction that with good intensions, positive energy and vibe to nature everything is possible. And the proof is the 10 pics I have of this threatened, magnificent and extraordinary beautiful inhabitants of our planet in this corner of Africa: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and white rhino also known as the Big Five, and elephant shrew, buffalo weaver, leopard tortoise, lionant and the rhino beetle known as the Little Five.

Best park in Tanzania
Overall rating

This park is, hands down, our favorite place in Tanzania. No matter what time of year you visit, you will always see lions, cheetahs, oodles of wildebeest, giraffe and many other animals. Depending on the length of your stay, you should also be able to see a leopard or two.
Highly recommend it!

Serengeti is amazing
Overall rating

Serengeti was all I had expected and then some. The animals, including the Great Migration, and the birds were beautiful, accommodations were unique and comfortable, and even at the more heavily-populated visitor centers at the entrances there was no trash or papers/plastic around.

A lifetime experince
Overall rating

Wildlife viewing in Serengeti National Park is good throughout the year, but certain areas are better at specific times. The dry season (from late June to September) offers the best wildlife viewing in general- with the wildebeest migration as its absolute highlight. The timing of the migration varies every year (the best chance of seeing it is during June and July) while the wildebeest calving is from late January to February.
The Serengeti's Southern plains are where the name of the park comes from. Huge endless grass plains stretch from Southern Seronera into the Ngorongoro Conservation area. The area is not as good for game out of the migration season as the central Seronera region, or the Western Corridor, but from December through to April the migration covers the entire area. February is a superb time of year to be here for the calving season when 8,000 wildebeest are born every day for a two week period! The only two permanent lodges here are Ndutu Lodge and Kusini Camp, however, all the mobile camps move down to the area for the whole period. Alex Walker’s Serian is perfect choice for this area, being close enough to the migration and far away from the other mobile camps. For a more migration intense location, Olakira, Nomads Serengeti Safari Camp and Serengeti Under Canvas work very well
