From its more southernmost point to the border of Kenya it takes 160 km. Most noteworthy is that with the Western Corridor you almost come to touch Lake Victoria. So we are not very far from another completely different ecosystem. For those who love the most authentic African landscapes, we recommend a visit to the coasts of Lake Victoria in addiction at the Safari in Tanzania.

How to visit Serengeti National Park

The vastness of the territory and the great amount of flora and fauna require it. It cannot be improvised based only on the aids that can come via radio from other drivers. We think that increasing the professionalism of safari guides can in the long run also improve the turnout. Certainly not easy, but governments would do well to think about why investing in the future.
