Tanzania has much to offer:
The Serengeti is the “other side” of the famous wildebeest and zebra migration in the unit that consists of the Maasai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania. Divided by a borderline that the animals are luckily not aware of, this wonderful piece of earth is home to the world’s greatest concentration of wildlife. The Serengeti National Park is a must-do if you want to experience the extraordinary spectacle of the migration. The great waving open grasslands supply food to thousands of wildebeest and zebra with others like buffalo, elephant, giraffe, gazelle and antelope species thrown into the mix. Cattle belonging to Maasai tribesmen dressed in their traditional red robes also compete wilth the wildlife for their grazing. The migration typically follows a circle route from Maasai Mara in the north to the south of the Serengeti and back to repeat the process over and over.
The Serengeti National Park, meaning “endless plains” in the Maasai language, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most celebrated wilderness areas and is an ongoing source of inspiration to writers, filmmakers and photographers. It is Tanzania’s oldest game reserve, renowned as the site of the annual Great Migration, when an estimated three million antelope – mostly wildebeest — migrate to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.
Game safaris are done either in closed or open vehicles or by walking under the supervision of experienced nature guides who are aware of the areas’ wildlife.
They will guide you to the areas where game can be watched and encountered carefully, as we do not want to disturb them but rather observe them in their natural habitat. This is mostly done early in the morning when the heat hasn’t yet risen and the animals are active, and then later in the afternoon until sunset when different species will get active.
Nowadays open safari vehicles are most common in game parks and reserves with a ranger sitting left forward of the engine compartment. This is done so that he has a good view of the animal tracks that may occur and check the animal behaviour signs so as to guide the driver in the right direction.
A special event is night viewing.
All of this is part of the great wildlife that is on offer in Africa, guided by professionals who have the expertise to offer an extraordinary experience of a lifetime.
