Heartland of Tanzania’s Wild and vast National Parks
Serengeti: the place where the land moves on forever (endless plains)
Serengeti National Park, a vast and beautiful expanse of 14,763 square kilometers, is perhaps the world’s most famous Wildlife sanctuary. A World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve, the Serengeti supports the largest concentration of plains game in the World. In addition to watching the incredible Migration of almost 2 million wildebeest and zebra that takes place each year from December to August, many people visit the Serengeti to search for big cats and it’s also a place where one can see the Big Five (Elephant, Rhinoceros, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard)
The park draws 90,000 visitors annually, all hoping to view the long files of wildebeest and the predators that stalk them. Given the important biological value of the park, several conservation and research efforts are underway in the Serengeti. The Tanzania National Park Association and the Frankfurt Zoological Society manage the park jointly.
