3 Days Mwanza Serengeti National Park Tanzania Safari: This is a short 2 nights wildlife trip from Mwanza Tanzania to the famous Serengeti National Park by road.

Our 3 days road trip safari from Mwanza approaches the Serengeti National Park from the western corridor.

Serengeti National Park is huge – it is broadly divided into four distinct areas – the central Seronera Valley, the Western Corridor, the Northern Lobo and Kogatende areas, and finally the Southern Plains.

Mwanza is Tanzania’s second-largest city and is set on Lake Victoria’s shore. Serengeti National Park Ndabaki Gate is about 140 km northeast of Mwanza along the Mwanza – Musoma road and gives direct access to the Western Corridor.

The drive from Ndabaka to Seronera which is central Serengeti takes about 3 hours.

The western corridor of the Serengeti landscape is more wooded and it is common to see giraffe, elephants, zebra, impala, topi, ostrich, hipo, waterbuck and many smaller animals.

Then we drive to the central Serengeti which is a large plain and full to tall grass. Here we find the big cats such as lion, leopards and cheetah.  If the time is right, the wildebeest migration is incredible to see.

The Serengeti is the mother of all safari parks and the most celebrated wildlife reserve in the world.

Renowned for its incredible concentrations of predators and the Great Migration of 2 million wildebeest, the Serengeti guarantees an exceptional safari.

 Serengeti National Park Highlights | What to Do and See

Serengeti Visitor Center: The Serengeti Visitor Centre is worth a stop for its self-guided walking path that provides informative signs and exhibits about the history of the Serengeti, its ecosystem, and its wildlife.

The Serengeti’s Great Migration: Throughout the year huge herds of wildebeest and zebra move in a clockwise direction around the vast plains, searching for fresh grazing grounds.

Witnessing the migration in the Serengeti is really as good as it gets in terms of your Tanzania Safari.

Serengeti daytime game drives:  The main attraction here is the wildlife. Serengeti National Park houses a huge population of large mammals, including giraffes, baboons, elephants, hippos, and, of course, lions.

You’ll also come across more than 500 species of birds, most notably, ostriches. When you tire of gazing at grazers, head to Moru Kopjes to mingle with rhinos or to the Retina Hippo Pool to watch these massive mammals splash about.

Serengeti Balloon Safaris: There are no words that can do the experience of floating over the Serengeti justice.” Get a birds-eye view of the park as you rise alongside the sun.

The flight lasts about an hour, after which passengers gather round a table, surrounded by the park’s lush plains, for an “Out of Africa” English-style breakfast.
