If a safari adventure tops your bucket list, the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is the perfect setting to see the Big Five for yourself. Picture lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo mere meters away on the African savannah.

Proclaimed as a national park in 1951, the authentic natural landscape still hosts some indigenous tribes, including the traditional Maasai people. Get up close and personal with the diverse wildlife with a trip to witness the Great Migration, the journey of roughly two million wildebeest across the Masai Mara. Most travellers prefer to visit during the dry season from late June to October for the best chance of catching this vast spectacle.

How to do it

Spend eight days on a budget camping safari in the Serengeti’s Northern plains for just £1,719pp when you book through Lion King Adventures. The price includes transfers to and from Arusha Airport, safari transport in 4×4 vehicles and all camping meals and equipment required. Travellers will visit the Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Crater along the way.
