Serengeti is the most famous national park and wildlife sanctuary in the world, unrivalled in its sheer and natural beauty, with the largest concentration of plains game in all of Africa.
The park was established in 1952., and it is home to the one of the Earth’s supreme wildlife phenomenon, the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. Serengeti is a permanent residence for large number of lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes and variety of birds.
The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on the planet, with the untamed mixture of climate, vegetation and fauna barely changed ever since creation. Within the park, the early man made his mark in the Olduvai Gorge, about two million years ago
But, it is the great migration that makes Serengeti stand out from any other national park on Earth. The spectacle begins when million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras start their movement from Maasai Mara in Kenya, over Mara river to the southern plains of Seronera valley. Every October and November during the short rains they venture South, and then back to North from April to June, when the long rains start. The instinct for migration is so strong, that not even no drought, gorge or river infested with crocodiles can hold them back.
The Wildebeest travel through a variety of parks, reserves and protected areas and through a variety of habitat. Join us to explore the different forms of vegetation and landscapes of the Serengeti ecosystem and meet some of their most fascinating inhabitants.
