Similar in size to Northern Ireland or Death Valley National Park, Serengeti means Endless Plains in the local Maa language. The park has a range of different habitats, making it a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. 

We have visited the park in 2007, 2011, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020 at various times of the year (February, May, July, September, November)

Below is a selection of some of my favourite images.

Leopards are usually the hardest of the big cats to spot, but we have been lucky enough to see at least one on every single one of our visits.
