Northern Serengeti, Lobo & Loliondo
High in the north, the region is a famous safari spot for wildebeest migration safaris. The northern Serengeti is unspoiled and beautiful and quiet in comparison to the southern Serengeti plains. The area stretches from the Lobo Hills southwards to Seronera and is typified by green rolling hills, which is a pleasant diversion from the much flatter southern plains. Safaris to the north are rewarding and perhaps a must-consider for those craving to have exclusive nature adventure experiences while in Serengeti National Park.
Travelers who make it to this corner of the Serengeti will be rewarded with gorgeous landscapes of green rolling hills, granite outcrops and acacia woodlands dotting open savanna, incredible wildlife, and most importantly, massive herds of wildebeest and zebra making the dangerous crossing of the croc-infested Mara River during the Great Migration in June and July and again in September, October and November. This sector of the park is also home to the greatest concentration of elephants in the Serengeti, as well as good numbers of lions, leopards, cheetah, and hyena, and diverse resident animals such as giraffe, topi, eland, and hippo. The National park is famous for holding the largest lion population in Africa. Safaris in Tanzania should include Serengeti as a priority for those interested in wildlife adventures.
The northern part of the National Park can be easily accessed and is most busy during the drier seasons of the year. As the area is much denser in terms of vegetation, wildlife viewing is more difficult and does not match up to the plains south of Seronera. However, as the northern Serengeti is much quieter in terms of tourist traffic, it may be worth considering this slight drawback as it means that you may go on a game drive without seeing a single vehicle. The north is thus a better choice for those who wish to experience safaris in a real natural environment with less human interference. Just imagine crossing this landscape of open grasslands with sprinkles of dense woodlands in complete privacy. Safari with us today and unfold the famous Serengeti National Park.
