Safari Bookings declares Serengeti to be the best African Park in 2023 above other 200 destinations

For the fourth consecutive time, Serengeti National Park in Tanzania has emerged the best African Safari Park from the 2023 study conducted through SafariBookings.

SafariBookings.com, happens to be the largest online marketplace for African safaris and has conducted the study to determine the 50 best African safari parks for 2023.

The basis for the travel-based study comes from more than 2,500 reviews written by Africa safari experts and safari-goers.

Serengeti National Park was the clear winner, which according to Safari Bookings, will be no surprise to safari enthusiasts.

The Serengeti received an overall rating of 4.87 out of 5, which was significantly higher than every other park that was under the microscope.

A total of 1,380 reviews were contributed to the study by safari tourists from 107 countries.

The remaining 1,114 park reviews were written by renowned international safari-industry experts, including guidebook authors working with Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Frommer’s Bradt Travel Guides and Footprint.

According to Safari Bookings, Serengeti is the poster child for the East African safari.

The endless plains is one of Africa’s largest, and has an astonishing array of wildlife that ranges across landscapes and habitats of singular beauty.

The annual 2.5-million-strong migration of wildebeest and zebra through the park may capture the attention, and rightly so, as one of nature’s greatest spectacles.

But the Serengeti is a year-round proposition even when the herds move on.

Why do so many travellers and safari experts rate the Serengeti as their favourite safari destination?

The annual great migration of wildebeest is the greatest wildlife show on earth.

Wildlife viewing is exceptional year-round, and includes predators in large numbers.

Rolling savannah grasslands, punctuated by flat-topped acacias and great piles of giant boulders known as kopjes, look like the perfect safari canvas, unfurling to a seemingly endless horizon. 

Visiting the Serengeti is part of Tanzania’s extraordinarily diverse Northern safari circuit; it’s easily combined with other stunning parks.

The Serengeti’s fourth successive victory as Africa’s best safari park is a remarkable and thoroughly deserved achievement.

This is especially the case given the high standard of competition in Tanzania and farther afield – across East and southern Africa, Ethiopia and Madagascar.

In total 200 parks in 15 African countries were included in the study Botswana, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Ethiopia, Lesotho, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Only parks known for classic wildlife-viewing safaris were considered. Parks mostly known for scenery or typical gorilla and chimp tracking parks were not included.

Parks with less than 10 reviews were excluded from the Top 50.
