DTSM - Serengeti Half Marathon Experience

Running a half marathon is an achievement. Running the Serengeti Half Marathon? That’s an experience, and a half! This one-of-a-kind eight-day adventure was made for running enthusiasts eager to get off the treadmill or the pavement and try something different. Spend a few days getting the lay of the land by meeting members of a local village and tracking the Big Five on wildlife safari drives around Serengeti National Park. Next, it’s the big race (21km, or 5km fun run), followed by two days spent exploring the wondrous Ngorongoro Crater. Pack running shs and adventurin’ boots; you’ll need ‘em both!
