Tourist Attractions

Wildlife viewing
The thing to do in the Serengeti is spotting the Wildlife, here you can spot  lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, cheetahs, jackals, giraffes, hippos, zebras, baboons, crocodiles, snakes, turtles and many other mammals. Most of the animals are extremely dangerous for humans so it is only possible to go wildlife spotting in a car.

See the wildebeest migration
In the months December to  July you can witness the migration of the wildebeest. Over 1.4 million Wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle travel over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain ripened grass. But they are tracked by their most fierced predators.


Safari
If people are to go to the Serengeti, most likely they are there for a Safari. A Safari is a tour trough the park, so it is possible to spot the wildlife. Because of the dangers that a safari brings, you are often accompanied by a tour guide

Climate
The weather can get extremely hot and dry, especially in the January and February. During the day it never gets below 25 degrees, but at night it can cool down quick.

The Best time to visit

To follow the wildebeest migration, December-July.
To see predators, June-October
