Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park
Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, the Serengeti, is famous for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as much as 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson gazelles join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing.
Covering an area of 14,763 square kilometers, equal in size to Northern Ireland, the world renowned Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuges. Its name comes from the Maasai word, Siringet, meaning ‘endless plains’.
The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than three million large mammals. It is the sanctuary of an estimated four million different animals and birds.
