Serengeti Travel Guide

by our Tanzania expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryThe Serengeti is one of the great nature reserves of Africa, scene of the annual miracle and one of ‘wonders of the world’ spectacle of the great wildlife migration. ‘Serengeti’ is actually a huge administrative region of Tanzania; within this is the Serengeti reserve that is itself many times greater in area and wild population than Kenya’s Masai Mara that adjoins it. One of the key districts within Serengeti is Ikoma, very much a focal point in the migration route and thus the home of a number of the best and/or best-known safari outfits. Fixed and mobile tented camps, lodges of varying luxury, group and individual safaris. (Again for clarity, be aware that many use ‘Ikoma’ in their title - be sure you’re talking to the one you want.) The migration is NOT on a bus service timetable … but roughly there are two peaks in Serengeti/Ikoma. In Oct/Nov the wildebeest and zebra, with their accompanying predators and other species entourage, travel north into the Mara; in May-Jun the whole process goes into reverse as they now head south to Serengeti following the incessant search for water and fresh grassland.
