Luxury Safaris in South Serengeti
The Serengeti is a vast area of around 12,000 square miles, spread over a number of reserves and areas. It’s most famous residents, the herds of Wildebeest and Zebra that form the great migration, mean that depending on the time of year, you might want to be in a specific part of this great territory.
The Southern Serengeti is best for playing host to the Great Migration during the green season, December to May, where the herds visit these verdant plains to calve (and also bring with them abundant predators).
Vast short-grass plains characterise this area, which, during the ‘secret season’ are made all the more epic by the herds of the great migration.
When to go
The Migration is located here during the green season (from December through May).
