Seronera River Valley (Central Serengeti)

- Time to Spend: More than Full Day
|About these ratings|
Encompassing much of Central Serengeti, this vast valley teems with wildlife. The valley's river keeps the vegetation plentiful, supporting herbivores throughout the year. Wildebeest, zebras, elephants, giraffe, gazelle, and many others can be spotted on any given day. The large amount of prey also draws the highest population of predators. The golden grassland rustles with the movement of roaming lions, cheetahs, and hyenas. This is also one of the best places to find the park's elusive leopards.
Because of the prime wildlife-viewing opportunities, the Seronera River Valley also contains many of the park's permanent lodges. While that's good for those who prefer their excursions with a side of luxury, it's also a drawback for travelers who'd rather watch the animals without the company of other tourists.
You can reach the Seronera River Valley—which sits just south of the Retina Hippo Pool—by plane via the Seronera airstrip. For more information, consult our guide to Getting Around Serengeti National Park.
