The ultimate safari Apr 02, 2011
A safari through the Serengeti is incredible. I have done a few safaris and Serengeti was by far the best. We saw the great migration, and you get to see the animals up close; there were lions walking around our car tyres. Definitely worth every cent.

My trip in Serengeti Aug 25, 2009
It was a remarkable visit me and my friends did in Serengeti.

To describe the Serengetis endless plain, with the savann filled with wilderbeasts and zebras is quite impossible. But if you picture Serengeti as the movie "The Lion King" then you have a image that will respond all of your expactations. And of top of that you will be able to se lions, leopards and cheetahs which are the big cats in the nationalpark. We didn't see any hunting by these, but we saw them all. And the moment that was completely over the top was when two female lions and one male lion were fighting right by the car.

We were there with a safari company called Mind& Soul travel which i highly recommend as well as i recommend you to go on safari in Serengeti. The company took good care of us, and we could rely on them completly. One of the director is Swedish and our driver guide was incredible. He could spot animals from miles, and he always knew what the animals were up to as well that he had alot of informations about them.

I can tell you that there are over 200 safari companys to choose about and all of them are trying to convince you that they are the best. So choose wisely, and make sure you can trust the company. And in my opinion i would suggest you to pay a little more to have that feeling of beeing able to rely a company as we did.

For all of you who wants to go to Serengeti i can inform you that it's totaly worth every penny! Its very expensive which its a pitty cause in my opinion i think its something everyone should have the opportunity to experience.

The Great Wildebeest Migration, the voices of nature and the dust from the earth! May 02, 2003
This is an expensive safari no matter where you are coming from. Serengeti National Park is one of Africa's most popular safari destinations. It is known for the great annual wildebeest and Zebra migration.

The Serengeti National Park is without a doubt one of the most popular wildlife sanctuaries in the world. It is home to a variety of wildlife, has natural beauty like words would not describe. My mother always said that in the wild, we find nature like it was always meant to be not cheated of its natural beauty he-he! The largest population of the wildebeest, an approximate two million of them live in the Serengeti. When I saw the great annual wildebeest migration, I was left in awe, I, must say there is nothing like the movement of these animals. From the Serengeti into the Masai Mara), it is also known as the Serengeti migration.

Sometimes when I'm really quite, I can still hear the thunder, and smell the dust in the air raised from the great stampede across the Serengeti, it is incredibly beautiful. I would definitely recommend doing the hot air balloon tours, they are quite expensive but they offer you a view that is priceless. Of course the noise from the hot air under the balloon can be destruction from up there, however, all you can hear is the thunder as the wildebeest, Zebras and gazelles make their way across the plains. The feeling one gets is of awe!

Earlier I, wrote a blog about the Masai Mara (look at my Kenya blog): the Serengeti is a Masai word that means "a large place or extended place", for luck of a better word. It directly translates to mean a huge landmass. With a landmass of a little over 12, 950 kilometers, the Serengeti is the largest national game reserve in Eastern Africa. The most popular tourist destination within the Serengeti is called the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation: some of the most popular safaris incorporate Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Serengeti.

Most tourists enter the Serengeti through its Southern entrance called the Naabi Hill Gate, which leads to the Seronera Valley. The Seronera Valley is an active wildlife sanctuary at the very heart of the Serengeti. It is also the main region where the great migration normally stops every year in March and then restarts in later June. Between June and September the migration is active: You should see the migration, the drama that the wildlife causes when they cross the Seronera River is indescribable. The Seronera River is also home to crocodiles who bank close by during the migration period waiting to feast on the weakest link, laughing here! Besides the crocodiles, the lions and leopards make for such predators that the poor gazelles remain helpless. The famous tree climbing leopards also call Serengeti home. Safaris to the Serengeti will allow you to view the big five and a range of wild cats too. The Serengeti was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1981.
