Serengeti National Park

The famous Serengeti National Park is some 14,763 sqkm (5,700 sq miles) in size and stretches North to Kenya and bordering Lake Victoria to the West.

The Serengeti is Tanzania's oldest national park, and is also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th World Wide Wonder. Famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest's trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers some of the most amazing game viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant's gazelle.

With all the plains game converging here, predators are abundant. Lion prides and solitary leopards hunt by day and night, and all three African jackal species occur here, alongside the spotted hyena and a host of more elusive small predators, ranging from the aardwolf to the serval cat.

Big game aside, over 500 bird species have been recorded here, ranging from the ostrich and secretary bird of the open grassland, to the black eagles that soar above the Lobo Hills. Popular as the Serengeti rightly is, it remains so vast that you may be the only human audience when a pride of lions masterminds a siege, focussed unswervingly on its next meal.
