Guide on how to book a Serengeti safari holiday
1- Know what you intend to achieve on your Serengeti Safari
The first thing to do while planning your Serengeti safari is to decide on what you want to do/experience on your Serengeti safari. Serengeti National park has a lot to offer and it’s all about you to choose what you want to do and that question should be answered within your mind before sending your inquiry because that makes it even easier to come up with a once for all travel plan. These include Wildlife viewing or spotting, wildebeest migration experience, Balloon safari and Masai cultural tour among others. Nearby National parks and game reserves are also worth exploring and these include the Ngorongoro Crater which is famous for Black Rhino sightings, Lake Manyara National Park which has beautiful flamingos and Tarangire National park which has plenty of wildlife, from monkeys to elephants and all kinds of species in between.
You may also expand your Serengeti safari with a beach vacation to Zanzibar or take a short flight from the plains of Northern Tanzania to the lush jungles of Bwindi forest national park in Uganda or Volcanoes National park in Rwanda for a Gorilla trekking experience.

2-Decide on the time of the year you want to go on a Serengeti safari tour
The best time to go on a Serengeti Safari tour is between June and October which is the dry season hence offering you the best views of wildlife in Serengeti National park.
The Month of September is the most active month in Serengeti as it comes with the wildebeest migration Mara River Crossings. The Mara River is the most treacherous Safari site where wildebeest venture into a shallow, crocodile-infested death trap.
3-Insist on a hands on Serengeti safari tour
The more hands-on the safari tour is, the better the Serengeti safari tour and there is no shame in this sort of pampering. Therefore it’s always better that you find a Serengeti safari where you are deeply debriefed about the daily activities and travel map of your safari and it should ensure that you always have bottled water close to you, a personal Serengeti safari guide throughout the tour to handle your luggage, escort you back to your lodge or room after dark and politely offers to fetch anything you may need. Engabi Tours and Travel will ensure that you get all these services!!!
4 – Decide on your budget estimate or how much you intend to spend on a Serengeti safari
A Serengeti safari is not a cheap one and therefore you decide on how much you want spend on your holiday in terms of the type of accommodation desired, the mode of transport to and from Serengeti National park and the number of days to stay among others.
The cost of your Serengeti safari holiday is determined by a number of factors that include the number of persons you are traveling with (the higher the number of people, the cheaper the safari trip), standard of accommodation (budget/mid-range or luxury), the mode of transportation (basic vans or Land cruisers), the cost of activity tickets and the season of travel (high season or low season) and the number of days you intend to spend on safari among others.
