Serengeti National Park

PRESENTATION OF THE PARC

Serengeti National Park is an iconic eco region in Tanzania that is most famously known for the sighting of The Great Migration. It is part of the Serengeti ecosystem which is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and one of the Ten Natural Travel Wonders of the World.
Serengeti which translates into English as “Endless plains,” is a Maasai word which they named when they used to graze their livestock in here and, according to them, the land run forever and never seems to be ending, which only signifies the vastness of this area.
The Great Migration move from north through the park area seeking new pasture lands towards southern plains and then venture into Kenya. The vast Serengeti National Park, pasture lands, and rivers like Mara and Grumeti perfectly accommodate the wildebeests who spend somewhere close to six to seven months in this park. Apart from that, the Big Five can be easily spotted here along with cheetahs, hyenas, monkeys, and porcupines.
The landscapes of this place mostly consist of grassland plains, savannas, forests, woodlands, hills, and rivers. Among the unique sights, calving by wildebeests and chasing and hunting by predators are a major attraction.
