Vast plains, huge concentrations of wildlife. The great migration of course. If you want to see as much as possible, go here. All the big cats, all the undulates. Great landscapes, koppies and oasis like rivers. Downsides are the amount of tourists. You see many vehicles standing around a group of lions or that cheetah.

Beaten track, but beaten for a reason.

Unfortunately we missed the migration at the park, but it was still busy with tourists. The landscape is open and expansive, meaning you're not constantly surrounded by other vehicles - unless you come across a pride of lions, in which case expect a steady build up of tourists.

There's a great number of animals to be seen at the park, and you'd have to be pretty unlucky not to come away with several decent sightings. Being driven around certainly makes for a relaxing tour, and there are plenty of extras to consider including camping or staying at a hotel within the park and balloon tours.

Our guide was interesting, we really liked him though I would imagine more professional ones are available. He was good at spotting wildlife but wasn't overly knowledgeable about each species. He compensated for this by being a fun and hardworking guide. The food provided was ok - not exactly fine dining, but we weren't expecting that anyway.

The weather during our time there was good - hot but not too hot, and sometimes cloudy. It didn't rain.

The highlight was probably the lions, as we saw them close up and with the male, who came and lay down right next to our vehicle. Just as we were about to leave a female arrived and called to her cubs, who arrived through the long grass. They were very cute. I also loved the hippo pool, where there was loads of activity.

All in all we had a fantastic time at the park, and would thoroughly recommend it to others who have an interest in wildlife.

While Serengeti National Park is spectacular and beautiful in its own way, the fact that Klein's Camp is located outside of the National Park where they have even more possibilities (and less regulations) to view wildlife you almost can't compare them. We have seen a lot of beautiful scenery and a lof of different animals, but at the Serengeti National Park you really have to be lucky to see some animals, because you're not allowed to go of the path. Still I think you should also visit this vast & wonderful park where you can have great drives.

The Serengeti is one of the most famous areas in Africa, and has the crowds to prove it. Though the front areas of the park were a little crowded for my taste, once we got further north and away, we saw unrivaled amounts of game. We were blessed with some late afternoon rainstorms, which brought even more animals out, and made everything seem so much more lush. Being in the Serengeti is like living in a photograph or painting, as we have all seen the famous landscapes at some point or another. There is more game there than most of us could ever see. Definitely worth a visit, but you might want to consider going at a time other than the high season.

I saw many many more animals than I ever thought I would.

I went in November, which borders on the rainy season. It was overcast much of the time, which was good. It kept us cool, and it did get hot when the sun came out. There are so many animals. In the middle of the night, I would hear constant noises from animals, near and far, all directions. The only protection was our tent, which is a little scary, but exciting at the same time. There was a giraffe grazing among the trees about a 50 years from our tent on afternoon. We almost witnessed a kill by a cheetah, but the she stopped upon hearing its young cry from its mother. We did see a carcass of a gazelle in the trees with two leopards. The next morning, they were nowhere in sight. The number of animals I saw was surreal. It was an amazing experience that I recommend to everyone.

It was a wonderful experience of a lifetime, to get immersed in nature and the wilderness.

We had visited Serengeti National Park with family in the month of March 2015. We were quite apprehensive that heavy rains will spoil our safari in the month of March which is rainy season in Serengeti. But that never happened and we were treated with wonderful sightings of large number of zebras, wildebeests, gazelles, giraffes, wild buffaloes, elephants, warthogs, birds and of course the big cats - Lions. Leopards and rhinos were elusive though. We are not allowed to drive off road, therefore the chances of seeing all wildlife are slim, but it is heartening to note that this way the pristine Savannah is preserved. We stayed at Serengeti Serena lodge which is situated in the middle of grasslands, with aesthetically designed cottages, wonderful staff and great food. We really enjoyed our stay there. We had booked the tour through Sunset Africa safari. Our driver and guide Mr. Ben was quite knowledgeable and friendly. The vehicle was a 4x4 Land Cruiser with openable roof and was in good condition. I am interested in wildlife photography and managed to click many photos which have been loaded on Flickr. Please do have a look. It was definitely a memorable Safari and would definitely recommend for you which I am sure you will enjoy. Cheers!

Rich wildlife, superb scenery. Serengeti national park is the ultimate safari destination and home to the world famous wild beasts migration.

The endless views, all that wildlife. Unbelieveble if you see this for the first time in your life. So close in distance to the animals, often they ignore you like the cheetah's, and lion's and elephants. Difficult to describe this.
