Serengeti - the infinite expanse
Setting for the Great Migration
Word Heritage Site and the most famous park in the world
Known to just about everybody, the Serengeti needs little introduction – a stunningly beautiful safari paradise and host to the annual Great Migration of zebra and wildebeest.

What is the Great Migration?
We recall Bernhard Grzimek’s television series and his descriptions of the wildlife paradise that is the Serengeti. The endless grassy plains are deeply impressive and the Serengeti is without doubt one of the most attractive safari destinations in the world.

If you’re in the right place at the right time, it is possible to experience the huge herds of wildebeest (up to two million), with some half-a-million zebra and a couple of hundred thousand Thompson’s gazelle, impala etc… in tow – accompanied by a couple of hungry lion, hyena and cheetah. The spectacle reaches its pinnacle in the north of the Serengeti, when the herds cross the Mara River.

Recommended accommodation
Mobile Camps
Mobile camps operate in the Serengeti and change their location two or three times a year following the Great Migration of the wildebeest and zebra. Mobile camps have a simpler, bush-like character. Although the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, there is often no running water in the rooms. Bathrooms are then equipped with a so-called bucket shower that needs to be filled with hot water by the camp team on demand.

Permanent Camps
Permanent camps do not change location and therefore have a better infrastructure than mobile camps.
