Visit the Serengeti National Park with Ajabu Adventures during a safari trip and discover the beautiful antelopes, elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos and the spectacular nature.
The Serengeti National Park is famous for the annual circular trek (migration), which moves in a way dependent of the rainfall pattern, and therefore fairly predictable, over the vast plains of the Serengeti. Many species, however, are satisfied with their own territory and do not follow the migration. Therefore Serengeti offers an exciting safari throughout the year.
The migration takes place over three regions.
- “Serengeti plains’, the endless, almost treeless grassland in the south. After the short rains start early November, the migration starts moving from north to south. Thousands of zebras and antelopes join the trek of around two million wildebeest for fresh pasture and water in the south. Late November to March the migration is concentrated in the south.
- The ‘Western corridor’, is a swampy savannah covered with black clay (black cotton) and the Grumeti River in the north. By April the herds move from the south to the west and about a month later they reach the “crossroad” in the middle of the Serengeti. A real survival of the fittest because of the large number of big crocodiles that have to be defied.
- In ‘Northern Serengeti’, which extends from the middle of Serengeti to the border of Kenya and the Mara River in the north, the landscape is dominated by open woodlands and hills. Around July and August the migration continues, often widely spreaded, further north. It is a spectacular crossing, since the herds need to defy the Mara River during their migration.
