Your Serengeti Central Safari in the Seronera Valley offers a year-round game-viewing holiday with impressive populations of bovids, terrestrial predators, reptiles, amphibians and birds, which remain even after the spectacular hordes of blue wildebeests and zebras have gone.
Central Serengeti’s Seronera Valley is a year-round game-viewing Holiday with impressive populations of bovids and predators which remain even after the spectacular hordes of blue wildebeests and zebras have gone. There are several species of hyrax, diminutive cousin of the elephants, hares, elephant shrew and other rodents, many of them red-listed as threatened species, hundreds of bright reptiles and amphibians, and birds in an astonishing variety from gigantic puffed up bustards to the jewel-like sun birds. The endless variety of landscape explains the diversity of wildlife to be seen during a Serengeti Central Safari with Mkama Tours to Tanzania. Volcanic in origin, the terrain has weathered over time to form distinctive areas. The low hill ranges contains black clay pans, which support acacia trees and the giraffe that browse on them. Central grasslands teem with varied herbivores including elands, impalas, buffalos, topis, hippos, and also their predators, hyenas, lions, leopards, cheetahs and other small cats
Thick woodland is home to several varieties of primates from vervet monkeys, olive baboons to bushbabies. The wild dog, officially declared extinct in 1991, is reported to have been seen in this area. On the plains, elephants are plentiful where matriarch herds are increasing in certain areas. Moru Kopjes loom from the sweeping savannah like ships on a golden-green sea. In addition to their matchless flora, weird candelabra trees and dazzling ephemeral flowers, the fauna include rare black rhino. Round off your exploratory trip in the wilds of Serengeti by climbing and playing the gong rock, and to admire Maasai cave paintings of elephants, shields and abstract patterns. The kopjes also provide a superlative vantage point from which to observe the massed bovids plunging past to their northern and western migratory course in April, May, preoccupied with the urgency of the rut as males select their harems and defend their territories. You can also see them in dissected herds on way south to calve around December and January.
