The ecosystem and topography of Serengeti National Park are extremely varied and feature a blend of woodlands, riverine forests, open savannah grasslands, acacia trees, and whistling thorns.
Serengeti National Park is surrounded by game reserves and designated wildlife areas from all different sides. This includes the Maasai Mara National Reserve in the northern region, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the south, Lolindo Game Controlled Area in the east, and the Maswa Game Reserve in the west.
The central region of the park is called Seronera and it has an airstrip where most charter flights land. The area also has a small river where herds of animals gather. Accommodation options are also varied in the region with lots of luxury and mid-range choices.
The Eastern section of the park is where most photographic safaris happen with the highlight being the Gol Kopjes. The northern Serengeti is where the Great Migration Serengeti happens in full flow.
The area of Southern Serengeti is very busy during the calving season, which runs from late January to March. While the remote region of the Western Corridor is primarily known for playing host to the Grumeti River crossings.

Well Gifted can organise everything, from Kili hike to safari and even a wedding on Zanzibar! The wedding day was organised very well. Flower arrangement was spot on, ceremony was beautiful and dinner was yummy (freshly grilled seafood). We had such an amazing day! Unforgettable memories…Jolanta Bober London, UK67
An amazing family trip, unique and special and mainly thanks to gift 'the hunter' who accompanied us during the whole journey, explained, taught and shared his life with us. If we go back to Tanzania, it's only with 'gift' as a guide.Reut H London, UK67
The entire experience was amazing and all because of the instructor we got, Gift. Has an enormous knowledge about the nature, wild animals and the entire environment. Knew to always patiently take us to the best spots, and above all he cared about our health and wealth more than anything.Michal Pinto London, UK67
