You do not want to give the impression to our dolphins friends that you are a rude character.

Do not touch the dolphins

This is probably one of the most important rules. If you get to intrigue a dolphin or a group of dolphins, they will come and observe you, do some laps around you. Do not use it to try to caress them. It is the dolphins who will initiate, perhaps, a contact. Anyway, do not take the lead. Especially since, in certain circumstances, this can lead to undesirable reactions from them. These animals are known for their good humanness, but they are mostly wild animals, do not forget it.
Visual contact

Try to create a visual contact with the dolphins that will come to meet you. Those who have the opportunity to exchange a look with a dolphin, a whale or a sperm whale will tell you: there are many things that pass (some even speak of telepathy). Whatever may be a very strong impression, which may give you the certainty, if you had not already, that these creatures are indeed of extraordinary intelligence and sensibility.

It was 1913 and great stretches of Africa were still unknown to the white man when Stewart Edward White, an American hunter, set out from Nairobi. Pushing south, he recorded: “We walked for miles over burnt out country… Then I saw the green trees of the river, walked two miles more and found myself in paradise.”He had found Serengeti. In the years since White’s excursion under “the high noble arc of the cloudless African sky,” Serengeti has come to symbolize paradise to many of us. The Maasai, who had grazed their cattle on the vast grassy plains for millennia had always thought so. To them it was Siringitu – “the place where the land moves on forever.

The Serengeti region encompasses the Serengeti National Park itself, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Maswa Game Reserve, the Loliondo, Grumeti and Ikorongo Controlled Areas and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Over 90,000 tourists visit the Park each year.

Two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established within the 30,000 km² region. It’s unique ecosystem has inspired writers from Ernest Hemingway to Peter Mattheissen, filmakers like Hugo von Lawick and Alan Root as well as numerous photographers and scientists – many of which have put their works at our disposal to create this website.The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.

It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back.
