Serengeti National Park, Tanzania; East Africa
Serengeti put simply is Tanzania’s most renowned National Park. It is the largest covering an area of 14,763 sq km of protected area and borders the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya, safaris tours and holidays in Kenya and includes wildlife safaris. Its far-reaching plains of endless grass, tinged with the twisted shadows of acacia trees, have made it the quintessential image of a wild and unblemished Africa. Its huge stone kopjes are home to rich ecosystems, and the sheer magnitude and scale of life that the plains support is staggering. Large prides of lions laze easily in the long grasses, plentiful families of elephants feed on acacia bark and trump to each other across the plains, and giraffes, gazelles, monkeys, eland, and the whole range of African wildlife is in awe-inspiring numbers.
The annual wildebeest migration safari through the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara safari tour attract visitors from around the world, who flock to the open plains to witness the largest mass movement of land mammals in the world. Close to a million animals make the seasonal journey to fresh pasture to the north, then later to the south, after the biannual rains. The sound of their thundering hooves, raising massive clouds of thick red dust, has become one of the legends of the Serengeti plains. The entire ecosystem thrives from the annual wildebeest migration, from the lions and birds of prey that gorge themselves on the weak and the faltering to the gamut of hungry crocodiles that lie in patient wait at each river crossing for their annual feed.
