Serengeti National Park Travel Guide

The local Maasai got it right when they named Serengeti the ‘endless plain’, because Tanzania’s largest national park truly seems to spread out into infinity. A diverse range of environments makes the Serengeti a popular place to experience the biosphere of Africa, but it’s the big game that really draws the crowds.

In addition to every dangerous, wild beast you’ve ever seen in National Geographic, the Serengeti is also famous for its annual migration of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra as they try and outrun and outwit the massive lion and cheetah population which hungrily waits. A smattering of some 500 bird species adds an aerial touch of glory to the equally overwhelming landscape, so if you have plastic pink flamingoes on your lawn at home, then come on safari and see the real thing.
