Serengeti National Park

Visited by over 350,000 visitors each year, Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s oldest and most famous park. Known for its great migration of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelle, the park stretches north to the Kenyan border and west to the edge of Lake Victoria in northern Tanzania. The grasslands of the Serengeti plains, the swampy black clay of the Grumeti River, and the open woodlands of the northern Serengeti, are home to a spectacular variety of wildlife. "Predator versus prey" dominates life in the park. Spot a Maasai lion stalking its dinner on the grassy plains, or see the crocodiles lie in wait for a wildebeest feast. A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1981, Serengeti National Park offers the complete safari experience.

Features:

Serengeti Animal Migration Viewing

The annual migration of the wildebeest is one of the most impressive sights in Africa. About 1 million wildebeest are constantly on the move following the path of the rains and the new grass.
