About Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is at the heart of the greater Serengeti ecosystem, which is defined by the area covered during the annual wildebeest migration. The area borders the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, all 5280 km2 of which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1979.

On the plains of the Serengeti National Park, approx. two million wildebeest and zebra migrate annually across this vast area following the weather patterns in search of grazing and water. The herds tend to congregate and calve in the southern part of Serengeti from January to March, before beginning the northern trek into the northern Serengeti plains and the Masai Mara in Kenya before looping back again – this leg of the epic journey occurring between April and December.

A dramatic volcanic and verdant landscape, the Serengeti is a permanent home to a plethora of other wildlife which can be viewed year round. One of the few remaining places to view black rhino in its natural habitat, the Serengeti offers the chance to view all of the Big 5. Its abundance of animals has seen the Serengeti as the subject of and location for many wildlife documentaries over the years.

Serengeti Pioneer Camp has a wonderfully secluded location overlooking the Moru Kopjes in central Southern Serengeti. It has good access to the wildebeest migration for most of the year, particularly in the calving season. Areas of special interest are the Moru Kopjes with their prehistoric paintings and musical rocks, and Lake Magadi, home to flocks of flamingos.

Serengeti Migration Camp is in central Northern Serengeti. In a quiet, less visited part of the Serengeti, the area feels wonderfully private. Serengeti Migration Camp is in an ideal location to enjoy the Serengeti’s wildlife, while also having easy access to the Mara River during the northern migration season.
