Guided game Drives

To see wildlife at its best, tourists can go on game drives through various tracks that are excellent wildlife viewing areas. You can get closer to the animals while on the game drive. Game drives on luxury Serengeti safaris are done at different times of the day. However, the best time to go on a Serengeti game drive is between 6:00 am and 11:00 am because most fierce predators like lions hunt in the morning, and there is a lot of animal activity where you can see cheetah, zebra, wildebeest, eland, and many more.

The cost of a hot air balloon ride in the Serengeti ranges between $499 and USD 599 for each adult.

The Wildebeest Migration

The calving season, as well as river crossings during which the animals dodge hungry giant crocodiles in the Serengeti, are highlights of the Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti. The migration sees approximately 2 million wildebeests, 300,000 Thomson’s Gazelles, and over 250,000 Zebras. With millions of animals marching in unison, you can expect a lot of drama, as this herd is frequently attacked by predators.

Guided Nature Walks

Another option to include on your luxury Serengeti safari is a Guided nature walk safari, in which you are led by an armed park ranger on a walk through the Serengeti’s easy terrain at a slow pace. This allows you to see plants, reptiles, animals, insects, and birds that you wouldn’t be able to see as well while seated in a car on a game drive; something that nearly 60% of tourists miss. A guided nature walk in the Serengeti takes place in groups of 6 to 8 people aged 12 and up.


Serengeti National Park is a popular destination for birdwatchers. The park is home to 542 bird species, 11 of which are endemic and some of the species found here include; The Kori bustard, Grey-breasted spurfowl, Rufous-tailed weaver, Grey-headed sparrow, Variable Sunbird, Secretary bird, Purple Grenadier, Black-headed Heron, Yellow-throated sandgrouse, White-bellied go-away bird, White-crowned shrike, Red-backed scrub, D’Arnaud’s barbet, Decken-Toko Tockus, Dark Chanting Goshawk and many more.

Luxury Serengeti Safari Accommodation

The Serengeti has a plethora of luxury lodges and tented camps scattered throughout the reserve and on its outskirts to cater to high-end travelers. Permanent lodges, which can be small or large, have a full range of amenities, from tennis courts and gyms to spas and swimming pools where you can cool off while watching wildlife drink from water holes. Tented camps, where you can experience sleeping under canvas without sacrificing any comforts (think king-sized beds, ensuite bathrooms, antique furniture, and butler service).

Then there are seasonal bush camps with a small footprint that are only open during the months when the migration is passing through, and exclusive; intimate mobile camps that move a few times a year with the movement of migrating herds. Mobile camps are an excellent choice for a Serengeti luxury safari because they bring you close to the action in remote, untouched areas and give you the feeling of being immersed in the bush – but this is far from rustic camping. Hot bucket showers, flush toilets, private butler service, and gourmet cuisine served in dining tents are standard features of luxury mobile camps, and some offer private and exclusive game drive vehicles and guides for each segment of guests.
