Serengeti National Park Honeymoon

A honeymoon in Serengeti National Park will be most enjoyable if you and your partner both love spending tons of time outside. The geography of the area is beautiful and ideally explored alongside experienced guides and tours. There are often few facilities, so planning is required to make the most of the visit. The park is famous for the mass migration of over a million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles in search of food. Visit from December to June to catch various stages of the migration. There are various camps set up throughout Serengeti National Park during these months to accommodate the viewing of these animals. If wildlife and nature photography is your thing, Serengeti National Park is perfect for you. There are countless opportunities to snap gorgeous shots of wildebeest, zebras, cheetahs, among others.
