Serengeti & Great Apes
A visit to the Serengeti in Tanzania, the Masai Mara in Kenya or to see Africa’s Great Apes in Rwanda or the DRC is a life changing experience and MUST be experienced to be believed. Any one of these adventures can be a full safari all on its own, however with smoother visa regulations and reliable flight connections, the Great Ape Safari can be combined with the Tanzania’s Serengeti – making this itinerary the ultimate safari!
Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater or Kenya’s Masai Mara deliver what easily ranks as one of the very finest wildlife experiences to be had anywhere. High season is from June through to October, but there are still good windows outside of that period where this combination is also possible. Mammoth Safaris is a leader in Great Ape Safaris and is currently also accessing exceptional viewing opportunities of these magnificent creatures in the largely uncharted Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo and the easily visited Uganda and / or Rwanda.
This combination safari offers one the opportunity to experience the thrill of predator interactions one day – with lion, leopard and cheetah all regularly sighted in the Serengeti and Mara, and then to marvel at the extraordinary privilege of sharing the forests with the last of the remaining great apes. Africa is a vast continent, but these countries and these experiences are so very close together that it makes a lot of sense to combine the two experiences.
A journey to Africa invariably involves travelling some vast distances, and having come all this way, why not make the most of your time in Africa and combine these experiences to create the safari of a lifetime.
