Game viewing safaris in Serengeti National park – Wildebeest migration and wildlife holidays
Game viewing safaris in Serengeti – Serengeti National Park is one of the most popular and beautiful National Parks in Africa found in Tanzania one of the East African countries. Serengeti National Park is best known for the annual Wildebeest Migration that attracts thousands of tourists from different countries of the world who come to enjoy game viewing and a reason why it is considered the world’s great wildlife show.
It is a very huge National Park and therefore hosts a huge population of wild animals that includes over 2 million wildebeests, half a million zebras, thousands of Thomson gazelles, impalas, grants gazelles, topis, hartebeests as well as elands. Enjoy your game viewing with the highest population of carnivorous animals like the leopards, cheetahs, and lions with the population of the herbivores.
Serengeti National Park has got different corridors, the western corridor, the central Seronera Valley, the southern plains, and the northern part that extends into the Masai Mara National Reserve and the wildebeests use that part of the corridor during their migration into the Masai Mara National Reserve and the tourists often enter through the Naabi Hill gate in the Southeast part of the National Park as that side has short grass plains that stretch right into the north of the Ngorongoro Conservation area.
The Serengeti wildebeests migration is the most amazing attraction and its timing is predicted by the rain season because for them to survive they need to follow the rain that brings the availability of food and water to drink. In the dry season, animals are a bit scarce because of the lack of water and most of the animals you will see will be the gazelles since they are not water-dependent so they stick around throughout the year. When the rain arrives in January to April, you will see lots of zebras, wildebeest, and gazelles wildlife in the area because there will be a lot of food and plenty of water around and therefore that is the best time to view the game in this area.
