The Serengeti ecosystem is a geographical region in Africa. It is located in north Tanzania and extends to south-western Kenya between latitudes 1 and 3 degrees south latitude and 34 and 36 degrees east longitude. It spans some 30,000 km2 (12,000 sq mi). The Kenyan part of the Serengeti is known as Masai Mara.

As Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, and also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

If you go on an organized Safari with a tour operator you will mostly sleep in mobile camps. Here facilities are more limited. The tents usually have simple beds with lining and duvets, camping toilets and showers depending on the Safari Operator.

Many lodges and tented camps operate their own generators or solar lighting systems providing intermittent electricity.

Safari Lodges
The term and the concept of the Safari Lodge are of Tanzanian origin. Here you will find buildings of exciting design, specially build to fit in with the wild landscape of the parks, yet with all the amenities of a luxury hotel, such as swimming pools and fine food. As you eat, drink, laze by the pool or sit on your private veranda, you will be able to observe game, often at only a few yards distance.

Luxury Tented Camps
There are a few Luxury Tented Camps in the Serengeti offering an absolutely unique Safari experience. The tents usually offer fully equipped en-suite bathrooms, private verandas and elegant furniture. At night you can listen to the wild sounds of the Serengeti cuddled up in a warm and comfortable bed!

Camping
A much cheaper alternative is to stay on one of the Serengeti’s nine campsites.

Maybe your local zoo has lions, leopards, zebras or elephants. Maybe they even have a wildebeest. But i bet they don’t have 1.3 million wildebeest—never mind 1.3 million wildebeest in migration, with predators in hot pursuit. It’s one of the most awesome sights in nature, and you can see it at Kenya’s Masai Mara.

Kenya’s flagship conservation area, the Masai Mara National Reserve borders Tanzania’s Serengeti and together they comprise the setting for the famous migration, a dramatic mass movement of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra that is irresistible to wildlife enthusiasts and nature photographers. The abundance of child-friendly accommodation makes for great Masai Mara family safaris while exclusive lodges in tucked-away locations are the natural choice for a Masai Mara honeymoon.

So you you want to see wild Africa, then the masai mara is the place to be.

Like my friend John always says Your local zoo doesn’t count. You aint seen wild animals unless you have been to the masai mara.
