Wildlife drives are the main activity here – some would say they're the reason to come to the Serengeti in the first place. Walking safaris are a relatively new activity here, but with luck they'll catch on.

Wildlife Drives

A wildlife drive in the Serengeti – whether self-drive, as part of an organised safari or as operated by your Serengeti lodge – is one of the most enjoyable things you can do in Africa. Exploring the Serengeti's four major areas (Seronera and the South, Grumeti and the Western Corridor, Central Serengeti and Northern Serengeti) requires careful planning; understanding what each area has to offer and at what time of year will determine how you experience this wonderful place.

Walking Safaris

A new development in the Serengeti is the introduction of walking safaris. Led by Wayo Africa, multiday camping trips are available in the Moru Kopjes, at Kogatende (by the Mara River) and in other areas of the park, and they can be as relaxing or as adventurous as clients prefer. Prices start at US$1650 per person per day for a two-day, two-night expedition; expeditions can also be combined with other safaris.
