The wildebeast run


Serengeti National Park

This vast area of land supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa on a scale unparalleled anywhere else in the world.

The name of the area is derived from the Maasai “Siringeti” meaning endless plains. Equal in size to Northern Ireland, the park contains an estimated 3.5 million large animals, most of which take part in seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders.

The Serengeti stretches over 5.700 square miles of plains, riverine bush, and acacia woodland, with savannah grassland as the dominant environment.

In the Serengeti, you will explore the Kopjes – home to lion, leopard, and cheetah – as well as follow the trail of the migrating plains game. From mid-January to mid-February the wildebeest migration is usually at its height in the Serengeti, with the wildebeest giving birth to their foals during this time.

The plains are crowded with the herds, and early morning finds many new calves tottering by their mother’s sides. Perhaps you will witness this spectacle of birth on the plains, as well as the dramas of predator and prey as they unfold in this beautiful setting.

As a result of the biodiversity and ecological significance of the area, the park has been listed by UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Sites. The administrative body for all parks in Tanzania is Tanzania National Parks or TANAPA.


Naipenda Safaris can organize the following activities for you in the serengeti: Hot air balloon safaris, game drives, bush lunch/dinner.

Although there are several lodges located in the boundaries of the Serengeti National Park, we recommend the Naipenda Mobile Tented camp. With this service we are able to get you closer to the action you want to see while provinding 5 star accommodation.
