Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park is Tanzania's largest and best-known National Park, with a massive concentration of migratory animals who move around the park according to the availability of food.
The Serengeti ecosystem extends beyond the National Park to include several other conservation areas and reserves, including the Masai Mara in Kenya. It is through these extensive protected areas that a million or more wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra and impala, complete their great circulatory migration.
Serengeti means "endless plain" in the Maasai language and much of the landscape epitomizes what we have come to expect from an East African safari - vast open savannahs dotted with acacia trees and a few rocky hillocks.
