The whole park’s area is about 15,000 km2. Its impressive size makes it the largest park, and it is, also, the oldest and most popular one. There are up to 70 species of big mammals and 500 species of birds. The Serengeti Park offers a unique spectacle – the greatest animal migration in the world. Millions of wildebeest migrate to search for food, followed by predators. The migration is absolutely one of a kind, repeated every year in regular intervals.

Some practical information before you go
Before you decide to set off, it is important to make clear what you expect from your stay in the Park. A traditional safari, so-called game drive, is perfect if you stay for 2-3 days, in order to have an opportunity to watch various kinds of animals. It is possible to manage a flight over the vast plains, either in a plane or in a hot-air balloon. If you desire to see the Great migration, we recommend to stay for longer, definitely. Since the location of the animals is changing and due to the size of the Park, it takes some time to find them. But if you get this opportunity, definitely make use of it. And don’t forget to visit a Maasai village.
