Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park, Tanzania's most iconic park, is a vast savannah wilderness that hosts one of the most spectacular wildlife spectacles in the world - the Annual Wildebeest Migration. The plains come to life once every year when over a million animals – blue wildebeest, zebra and topi - reach here in their annual anti-clockwise migration round the Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem. This epic journey follows weather patterns with very slight variations in the route every year. They are welcomed to the plains by an anxious host of predators, lions, leopards, cheetah, hyena, crocodiles and others, all eager to take advantage of the bounty before the multitude of travelling companions move on to the Masai Mara in Kenya which borders Serengeti to the north.
The Serengeti has a wide diversity of habitat with four distinct varieties - hilly and wooded north, vast grass plains in the southeast, woodlands in the west and acacia and savannah woodland in the center.
A wide variety of big mammals call the Serengeti home. The most common are the wildebeest and zebra, there are a number of antelope species, and the Cape buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe and topi are quite common. Warthogs can also be seen in almost every area of the park. Lions, hyena and jackal can be regularly sighted while the shy leopards prefer to hunt at night hiding high up in the tall trees during the day. Hippos and Nile crocodile can be found along the rivers with the latter also common in the larger pools within the park. There are many primate species, mostly in the wooded west, with varieties also at home in the savannah woodlands at the center of the park. The bird life in the park is prolific with over 450 species recorded here.
