We utilized Robert Mark Safaris for a recent adventure holiday to Serengeti & Ngorongoro. It had always been on our bucket list. Robert Mark Safaris were fantastic in ensuring that out trip went seamlessly at every step of the way, and we were especially pleased with the detail that they placed on our personal requests. They also provided some great recommendations that added some special memories to our trip. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to anybody who has ever wanted to go on a safari, thanks again guys, we will be back.

LUXURY SAFARIS IN THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
The Serengeti is likely one of the best-known wildlife sanctuaries on our planet. It is a UNESCO world heritage site, and is located in the northwestern part of Tanzania, stretching northward across the border and into Kenya. When thinking of your idyllic African safari dream, few words roll off your tongue quite as easily as the Serengeti does.
There is so much of essential Africa to experience here that you could easily visit only the Serengeti without going anywhere else, and keep going back over and over again without ever getting tired of it. Compared to some of the regions in southern Africa, the prominence of open short grasslands and larger herds of plains game is noticeable, although they don’t have quite the in-water action that you find during the high water season in the Okavango Delta.
If you’re looking for the classic African savannah scene made up of endless short grass savannah’s dotted with the occasional Acacia tree and large herds of plains game, we suggest you head to the southern and central parts of the Serengeti. Moving westward to the Grumeti River, one of the two famed rivers where - at the right time of year - you can see thousands of wildebeest taking the leap of a lifetime to cross crocodile infested waters so that they can continue their annual migration to the greener areas of the northern Serengeti. The northern areas gradually become slightly hillier and within Tanzania are not visited as much, however they become significantly busier as you cross over the border into the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
This annual migration of game is no doubt the star of the Serengeti show. As over a million wildebeest and zebras migrate northward away from the drier depleted grasses in the southern Serengeti during the winter, and back again for the summer. However, the migration is not the only thing to go for - one can experience a variety of things at different times of the year.
