Serengeti National Park

Serengeti, the largest and best known of Tanzania’s National Parks, covers an area of over 14,500sq kms. This park is typical savannah grassland with rolling plains that fill the view punctuated with trees and bushes, where mighty eagles and vultures survey the earth for prey, and rock inselbergs under whose shade the lions sleep and the rock hyraxes play. This magic land hosts lions, cheetahs, elephants, rhino, wildebeests, gazelles, impalas, among other animals. Serengeti is a maasai word meaning ‘endless plains’.It is here the original home of the wildebeest and for years, these beasts have trekked this land, crossing to Maasai Mara in Kenya and back to Serengeti in search of food and water. In fact the wildebeest migration is the only animal phenomenon that has drawn the attention of millions of visitors & researchers to this park over the years. Serengeti became a household name after the famous Grizmeks conducted the first aerial study of the migrating wildebeest and wrote the masterpiece, “Serengeti Shall Not Die.”
