Serengeti: voted the best national park in the world by Trip Advisor.

Serengeti National Park is not just any place.

The lack of “real” roads in the Serengeti allows wildlife to roam here undisturbed. Here, no paved paths on which giraffes can slip, but dirt roads accessible only to rugged 4×4 vehicles.

A visit to the Serengeti therefore requires careful planning to get the most out of your experience.

This is the domain of the great migration. The annual migration of millions of wildebeest, grant gazelles, thomson gazelles, eland, impala and zebra, of which as many as 85% are in the Serengeti, constitutes the largest migration of land animals in the world. It is known as
“the greatest show on earth”
. This migration is different each year, mainly in response to variations in the weather. The exact timing of wildebeest migration in the Serengeti depends entirely on the precipitation patterns that occur each year.

In the bustling heart of the national park, just north of the vast shortgrass plains, lies Seronera. This place embodies the true essence of the Serengeti and offers the opportunity to spot as many as 25 different wild cats a day.

The wildlife here is nothing short of spectacular, with impressively high densities of relaxed leopards, cheetahs and lions.


The northern Serengeti extends about 100 km north from Seronera to the Kenyan border. This area is characterized by gently rolling countryside with more trees and bushes, and is further interrupted by small rivers, hills and occasional headlands. As you travel further north, the number of vehicles decreases. Even during the peak migration season, between August and October, you can still enjoy spectacular crossings of the Mara River without the crowds.

The south of Serengeti National Park is covered by vast shortgrass plains that stretch into the north of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Further west until almost to Lake Victoria, where it narrows to the Western Corridor.

Planning a safari in this area can be complex.

JADORE SAFARIS is here to guide you in choosing the right camps at the right time of year. That way you will have the best possible experience. Especially since wildebeest migration varies greatly each year. Our safaris include a private guide with years of experience and well-equipped safari vehicles.

Katja de Feu

Katja, co-founder of JADORE SAFARIS, has developed a passion for tourism with more than 5 years of experience organizing safaris in East Africa. Together with local partners, the company has grown into a unique initiative focused on exclusive private safaris away from mass tourism.

An African safari is always an adventure. But to embark on your adventure means that even during the planning phase, you need to get in touch with someone who provides independent and honest advice.

It is rare for someone to return home disappointed about their safari, but they may not be aware of what they did not see and how much better it could have been.

Katja wants to make sure her clients are aware of all options for their African adventure … regardless of how they define that adventure. JADORE SAFARIS clients become her good friends, many of whom return to Tanzania or Kenya to travel with us again.

In addition to the personal welcome, it is also Katja who, behind the scenes as financial director, ensures that everything once you are here can also run smoothly.
