FOR YOUR INFORMATION!
The Serengeti is the most famous of Tanzania's national parks located on the northern circuit of safari itineraries.The park is renowned for its annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and usually accompanied by about 250,000 zebras and 200,000 gazelles. Ceaseless columns of wildebeest swarm into the Serengeti, blanking the plains on their way to Maasai Mara, thus making a safari to the Serengeti well worth it. The massive Serengeti is 14763 sq. km of endless rolls of plains dotted by kopjes (rock outcrops), and patches of flat-topped acacias, woodland, swamps and lakes. The word Serengeti itself is a Masaai word for "endless plains". It provides sanctuary to the highest concentration of wildlife in the world. It is home to about 4 million animals. As you travel on, you gradually encounter increasing numbers of wildlife. There are about 35 species of savannah animals to see along with many of the 500-odd species of birds. In June or July one can witness this spectacular annual migration in search of water and food as the season change. In their wake, follow the predators: lion, cheetah, hyena and hunting dogs with vultures circling overhead.
