Serengeti national park has been many visitors’ dream, namely for its vast plains, for its huge number of wildlife as well as for its important biodiversity.

During the rain season, you will be able to witness the famous Great Migration, when some 2 million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles migrate from Kenya.

The Serengeti national parc is the flagship of Tanzania; it is also its oldest national parc.

Covering 14 750 km2 (slighty more than a third of Switzerland), the Serengeti is located in the country’s North-East. It is composed of grassy lands, savanna and forests bordering rivers.

Its plains are home to the largest concentration of wild mammels on earth. It is also home to the “Big Five”, in large numbers.

The plains surrounding Lake Natron offer a very peaceful African landscape, only small Maasai villages decorate the landscape.

Mount Ol Doinyo Lengaï is an active volcano, which overlooks the plains. The Maasai recognise the Lengai as the home of their Goddess.

You will have the opportunity to hike on the calm tracks of the plain, that will lead you to river bank and finally to the bottom of an imposing waterfall.

A true African experience !
