Scenery

Serengeti's scenery is renowned for its grassland plains in the southeast. The northern part is more hilly and rocky. To the west, valleys, rivers and forest can be found. The scenery is stunning and feels like untamed wilderness.

The Serengeti landscape is quite varied with flat-topped acacias (a genre of shrubs and trees), rolling plains and open grasslands that are bordered by hills and rocky formations. Extreme weather conditions plague the area, with harsh winds combining with heat to create a harsh environment.

Location

Size: 14,763 sq km (5,700 sq miles).

Location: 335km (208 miles) from Arusha, stretching north to Kenya and bordering Lake Victoria to the west.

Weather

The average temperatures are quite uniform throughout the year, moderate and pleasant. It never gets very hot, but is consistently cool to cold at night and in the early mornings. It is advised to take warm clothing for early morning game drives.

Temperatures drop by about 6.5°C for every 1000m you climb so even within the park there are wide climatic variations. Activities around Serengeti
