Tanzania's Serengeti Voted Best African Safari Park of 2018 | Odyssey Safaris

Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park has emerged again in the lead as the best African Safari park following analysis of a recent study conducted online.

SafariBookings.com, an online marketplace for African safaris, compiled a definitive list of Africa’s best safari parks and after in-depth study which included more than 2,500 reviews from safari tourists and industry experts alike, Serengeti was rated the best African Safari Park.


The organisation said in a statement on Wednesday June 13 that the Serengeti received an overall rating of 4.9 out of 5, an outstanding result.

“This was the highest score amongst all the parks, and thus the Serengeti has been crowned Africa’s Best Safari Park. This reflects the continued popularity of this stunning park with safari-goers and industry experts,” it stated.

Serengeti also came out on top in ‘Best Safari Park’ analysis carried out by the same organisation in 2015.

A total of 1670 reviews were contributed by safari tourists from 72 countries. The remaining 860 park reviews were written by renowned experts, including guidebook authors associated with Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Frommer’s, Bradt and Footprint.


An analysis of these reviews resulted in the list of Africa’s Top 50 safari parks. Both Mala Mala Game Reserve in South Africa and Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe came a close second and third to Serengeti, respectively, in the rankings.

Tanzania had three parks overall in the top 10; Serengeti National Park (no. 1), Selous Game Reserve (no. 9) and Ngorongoro Crater (no. 10).
