Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. And Serengeti’s predator concentration is high year-round. Depending on the season, accommodation will be at Grumeti Hills or Mara River Post
