Serengeti Green Season away from the crowds

Price From: $8,055pps

The whole region of Northern Tanzania is usually green and full of life at this time of year. Wildlife is generally fantastic throughout the year in the Crater. The Big Five are all here to be seen if you are lucky. Rains in the southern Serengeti have drawn the wildebeest south in search of fresh grazing on the nutrient rich short grass plains. This is where the wildebeest would love to call home, and where a million wildebeest start their life every year. Up in Lamai there’s incredible resident game year-round, and far fewer people as the crowds head south chasing the migration.

Price From: $8,055pps

In the Crater, the 'Short rains' usually occur anytime throughout November and December. Showers generally happen in the afternoon and are relatively short lived. Temperatures are warm during the day and can drop considerably at night. The first afternoon thunder showers start to build over the Serengeti plains and relieve the wild residents from the dry spell. It is a magnificent sight to watch a lightening show play out above the grasslands and watch the bush transform almost overnight. It is time for the wildebeest to start heading south in preparation for the arrival of the next generation. Migrant birds begin to arrive ahead of their breeding season and babies start to make an appearance. In Lamai, the bush is verdant and green and there is plenty to see, without too many other people around. Hot sunny days with the a higher chance of the odd scattered rain shower, generally in the afternoon. Please note this itinerary would cost $10,800pps over the festive period.

Serengeti Safari Camp

The gloriousness of the green season is hard to match in this part of the world. Rains in the southern Serengeti have drawn the wildebeest south in search of fresh grazing on the nutrient rich short grass plains. This is where the wildebeest would love to call home, and where a million wildebeest start their life every year.

Beautiful, stylishly simple and supremely comfortable. Our light of foot mobile Serengeti Safari Camp.

Lamai Serengeti

Head to Lamai during December and May - slow down and get away from the crowds and we'll show you another side of the Serengeti. Unlike the southern plains of the Serengeti that dry out, forcing all but the hardiest of species to leave, this area remains lush and green. There's a collective sigh of relief from the resident game when the one and a half million migrating wildebeest - and the madness that attends them - leave town for a few months. And the resident game at Lamai Serengeti is spectacular. Why not venture out on foot to explore the winding river lines or rocky outcrops. This is a magical time to explore this part of the Serengeti. Read more about Lamai Serengeti.
