One of the biggest and best wildlife reserves in the world, the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, is a must for anyone interested in wildlife or taking a Safari. At over 5,000 square miles the park is really something to behold; however, with 1000's of Lions being among the natural habitat, you will definitely want to plan this trip and not just go hiking through the desert.
Accommodation around the Serengeti can vary tremendously in price, so it's a good idea to look around first. One good option is the Lobo Wildlife Lodge; built on a migratory route, this affordably priced lodge offers plenty to those looking to have a relaxing stay, while at the same time enjoying some of the breath-taking wildlife that the Serengeti has to offer.
You can opt for staying at the lodge while the wildlife comes to the watering hole close by, or you can go for one of the various safaris the lodge has to offer. The important thing is you can do everything from this central location, so it will take the stress out of your vacation.
Among the immense amount of wildlife one to watch out for is the Black Rhino. Due to poaching their numbers have decreased so they sadly aren't in abundance; however, there are still some to be found, mostly in the centre of the park. However, you will need to consult a guide as they won't be easy to locate if you don't have knowledge of the area.
If you are planning a trip to one of nature's greatest wonders there are a couple of tips to remember, you will need to get your vaccinations done. You will also need proof of immunisation against yellow fever before being allowed to enter the country.
You can visit at pretty much any point of the year, however, due to the severe rain you should try and avoid March through to May.
