best sunset watching Serengeti Tanzania
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

You won't have to worry about tourists crowding your view of a Serengeti sunset. After all, northern Tanzania's Serengeti National Park has more than 5,700 square miles to share. And in this part of the world, silhouettes of elephants and giraffes will most likely accompany your panorama of the smoldering sunset. Book a safari and watch as day shifts into night: The sky, a canvas of orange and red, will make your heart soar. A safari is a great way to experience a Serengeti sunset, but if you want to view the breathtaking display from a higher altitude, sign up for a hot air balloon safari.
