A Tanzanian Tour of the Serengeti Plains

by | Feb 25, 2014 | Travel

If you want to experience Africa like never before, then you should attend one of the many
Tanzania Safari Tours that the country has to offer. The Serengeti is one of the largest and most popular tourist destinations in the world, and it is one of the most exciting wildlife sanctuaries that you will ever see. Estimates show that up to 2 million wildebeests live there, along with 500,000 zebra, thousands of Thompson’s gazelle, and thousands of impalas. You will never turn a corner without seeing one of these marvels of nature. When you are in this safari zone, you will also see the predators that hunt them down. A Tanzania Safari tour is extremely exhilarating.

Discovering the Serengeti

The Serengeti national park consists of around 15,000 km² of flat grassland. This grassland is filled with rocky outcrops, wild plants, and spectacular scenery. The northern area of the park is filled with small rivers, as well as the connecting Mara River which can be seen from this area. Animals usually migrate across here during August and October, making it a prime sight to be seen. The western corridor has crocodile rich waters that pass over into the Grumeti reserve. Whatever your preferences may be, you can be sure to find something that will tap your interest on a Serengeti safari tour.

Taking a Guided Tour

A Serengeti Tour is usually guided. A guide is extremely beneficial, because they will show you everything that is to be seen. They will also keep you safe during the process. There is so much to learn about the animals and the way that they live. There is no better way to learn than to see it in action up close and personal. Your guided tour will also show you the fascinating scenery, including the rocky outcrops that shadow the plains and the many rivers that cross the area. The bumpy track that goes through part of the plains is also suitable for off road vehicles, if they are available. You always have to be prepared for the unexpected when taking a safari tour. This can include a crocodile sinking a wildebeest in the Mala River, or a zebra herd running away from a lioness.
