Singita Serengeti Grumeti Reserve Safaris

Introduction

Proclaimed by many as the ultimate safari destination, the Serengeti is a UNESCO world heritage site made up of 1.5 million hectares (nearly 5800 miles) of savanna. Its grassy plains are the richest grazing grounds in Africa and are home to the biggest herds and highest concentration of predators, including up to 4000 lions! The region is best known for the Great Migration, an incredible spectacle of up to 2 million wildebeest, as well as hundreds of thousands of zebras, impala and gazelles leaping across the plains in search of food and water. Our Serengeti safaris take place in Grumeti, a 350,000-acre private game reserve right on the migratory corridor on the north west border of Serengeti National Park. This lush region is typified by rolling hills, woodlands and rivers. Each of our luxury lodges has its own unique setting. We encourage you to spend a few nights at each in order to get the full Grumeti experience.  Game viewing is sensational year-round- expect to see aardvarks, giraffes, jackals, mongoose, crocodiles, monitor lizard, and many primates including baboons, colobus monkeys and over 500 species of bird. 

Highlights

  • Classic safari experiences with exclusive access to a game-rich wildlife reserve
  • See the great wildebeest migration
  • Luxury accommodation in your choice of lodge or tented camp

Best For

The Great Migration is the major draw card of the Serengeti (from July – October), however game viewing is wonderful at any time of the year. Flagship offers a number of atmospheric accommodation options in the reserve, each with a unique setting and experience. Guests are encouraged to spend several nights in each for a full Serengeti immersion.

When to Visit

If coming for the Great Migration, July – October will give you the best chance to see thousands of wildebeest crossing the mighty Mara River. Visitors in February can see giant herds congregating for calving season in the plains.
